the Green Toy has 4 manual pull out riggers then you manually screw them down. but back when they design the out riggers they never thought of plastic sliders or grease nipples or any means of lubing up the steel on steel. I soaked the out riggers down and 3 weeks later after cutting 1/2 the slide tube away I was able to tug the 1 leg out then bunt the other one out. when re-assembled there will be means of lube in the form of grease nipples or oil holes.

You'll probably get good setting them by swinging the boom over each one, shoving down to lift the truck and then spinning them down.

Lather
rinse
Repeat

most of the youtube videos show using the out riggers when doing a 20,000lbs lift. most of the time the out riggers are not used. fear and common sense is not a problem I guess, lol

I thinking a set up of easy to handle tube to set up a pulley straight out from where outriggers have to slide, and then cable and pulleys to spot where can hook up to the winch and let the winch do the heavy pulling. Same for pulling them back in.

You will be able to figure something out. Just need to think outside the box, and a working idea will come.
