Smile Lifting 30' beam with a front loader

Could not find my previous thread on ideas of lifting a 30' wood beam with a tractor front loader. Thanks for all the help. Here is how it went. A little short video, but you'll get the idea. The little tractor that could.

I put it at the top of the web page here.

Looks like it did the trick! Did you find it made you light on the rear tires?

Nice job. Nice vid to.. Tell me more about the solar array?

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.

Here is your old thread. You can find them by going to your profile, click on statistics, and then on threads started by you.

There it is.

I had thoughts of that, but the beam was very light.


Lots of videos here.
