After dicking around for the last 3 days, Scott finally has a functioning loader on his tractor. One hose was replaced at $109. About 9 feet long. Took 3 different mods to the rear mounting plates to clear the 3 point hydraulic cylinders. Next to replace 3 dash gauges.

Picked up a chunk of 2 3/8" drill stem from the well driller neighbor yesterday. Had to heat each weld area on the drill stem to take out the magnetism before welding.

Sawed up 2 pieces, one 4' long and one 7' long and grabbed 2 3/8" chain hooks for the resource pile, cut two 1/4"x4" plates and one 1/2" plate circle about 4" diameter. Welded every thing up with 6010 root and a 7018 cover pass.

Found a length of high test chain to go from the hook on the bucket to the hook on the end of the drill stem. Now his tractor will be used to set the trusses on his shop next June.

It sounds like a good father&son project. And three days to do that is about right for an old guy

I tried to upload pics, but got a message that this site had a missing security token. Notified Ron, waiting for him to answer.

Yeah a PM would be better as I never check the message board.

Were you using your phone or a real computer?

My phone. Have used it several times in the last month since my camera went south. Downloaded OK to SFT but got this message during upload. Tried 3 times. I did send you a message too.

I forgot how wide the shop is going to be, but if lifting long trusses, you need a spreader bar so the truss is lifted in two points. Here's how I did my spreader.

Also keep in mind where the workers are going to be to reach things to unhook it.

If you have verticals, looping in such a way that it will slide down is a definite advantage.

When I’ve been doing truss and rafter work, I often wished I had a couple big ‘J’ hooks like they use on tow trucks.

I made a big hook for doing trusses. I actually copied it from one I made for a crane service years ago. I left off the self hatching hook that Osha required, that way just lower and unhook without anyone having to unhook manually.
