    Talking hillbilly engeneared lift.

    had a frend put in a request for a big stump to do some metal work on and i found one but cant pick it up.
    well i got a lift jack a few weeks ago to make a bender, a decent lift, a log splitter and a press out of, using the one jack interchangably . but have not gotten any of the matereals for the real projects yet and as he needs the stump i figured i would just grab some old steel and see what i could come up with to get me down the street and back with a big azz log.
    i figured i would just clamp it to my pull behind trailor so i could lift it up and set it into the trailor and bring it on back home behind the quad. well it turns out the wait tends to pull up on the trailor tung so i had to strap it down to the quad as a counter wait. yea i know its not the way it should be done but its a dump bed trailor so i was afraid it would pop loos and dunp on me. not good so i just threw a few straps to give it a lil back suport. with me hanging on the lawn rooler its about400 or so Lbs hanging off it so it should cover the log lift just fine. i couldnt take a pic of me hanging on it i never used the timer function on the camera so you will just have to take my word for it.
    true case of getting er done with what ya got right there.

    Interesting project.

    However:
    It needs some duct tape in there somwhere to really finish it off.
    Maybe wrap a few turns around the "C" clamps to be sure they don't come loose.

    I think we all can say we are guilty of some dangerous rigging of some sort at one time or another. Gotta love the make something from nothing mentality, tell us weldors we can't do something and we will find a way to rig up something to prove that it can be done. Dave

    Bert, glad to see you have everyones safety and well being on the top of your priority list. lol
