Well I dont know if this counts as a tool or more of a attachment but it was one of the more complex things I made from scratch. . .

Its called a" stinger" for moving Mobile homes across black top roads just like on the back of a "toter" this was when the little machines they have now were way expensive.

Bull dozer's don't do good on asphalt :nono:

I thunk it up all by myself :drunk:

Man I was sweating it because I didn't know if it would work :sweat: :sweat: but it did
I couldn't tell if the tractor would wheelie or not until I hooked it up :sweat: theoretically it was 50/50 but I knew if it DID wheelie I could fill the bucked with dirt or something for counter weight

4" bore 4' stroke Hydraulic ram with a electric over Hydraulic "monarch pump" 12 volts that fit on the back of a 1971 CASE CBK 580 back hoe

1" plate for the whole thing :D

The back hoe detached

The ball had a double hitch & I made a stand for it too as seen here
Blurry sorry

Took about a month to build after hours & was the only one in the area I know about that could move mobile homes on pavement

It never got painted because I got hurt & had to leave the job

& I never got to weigh it either lost all the digital pictures to a virus too they probably scrapped it for beer money by now :rolleyes:
