Rigged up a 10' piece of 2.5" thickwall pipe with my clamp on forks to make a boom pole and set trusses for our picnic shelter.

Found out the BX23S WILL carry a set of mounted 10x20 duals from the 2000G watering trailer to the garage.

I do have pics of putting them up, but no pics of the boom pole specifically. Here's what I did:

I have the clamp on forks, and put them close together.
Put my pipe between them through to the back of the bucket.
Chained the bucket end of the pipe to the "clamp" part of the forks.
Secured the middle portion of the pipe to the forks with a strap wrapped around.
Drilled a hole right through the forward end of the pipe and put a bolt through the pipe and a piece of chain, with a hook on the end.
Drilled a hole in middle of the pipe length near the ends of the forks, bolted on a chain that runs to the hook welded on the back of my bucket.

Put up galvinized trusses that were maybe 150lbs each, for a 24' span. They are from a greenhouse that was taken down, super handy, 5' rise over a 14' run. I have 6 left to build a greenhouse with next year. They bolt to my beams or wall top plate and have a perpendicular tab every 24" with a whole in it. Just lag bolt 2x4 strapping over top, and put on your roof. Paid $20ea for 20 of them. Used some already for a garage.

Thanks. I've been trying to find a reason to buy bolt on forks...this might be the reason the "boss" releases the funds!

I changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, chaff filter, etc. Then raised the deck on the finish mower and did 2/3 of the back field before calling it quits for the day. The grass was pretty tall - someone suggested making mini-bales of hay for city folks with mini-animals.

Today I'll finish our field then cut my neighbors. He's having some mobility issues - hey what are neighbors for right? - it's only diesel.

Moved another bucket load of firewood to the garage woodshed which is finally full.
Switched to the grapple fork and hauled a pallet of shingles for my parents laundry room roof.

Finished yarding the last of the firewood, 21 pickup loads. Thankful for the L260 but glad to be done before Bird season.
