Turn Your Hay Spear Into A Handy Boom Pole

You can quickly turn an ordinary hay spear into a handy boom pole with this new lifting device that fits securely onto the end of the spear.
  The patented CannonLift is small enough to fit into your tractor’s toolbox. It’s designed to fit most commercial bale spears and has a maximum load capacity of 10,000 lbs.
  The device is forged from high grade steel and easily slides onto the end of the spear, where it locks in place using a proprietary “slip-lock” technology. The operator attaches ropes, chains, cables, come-alongs or the like to the large opening at the bottom of the CannonLift, and also attaches a safety chain via a clevis to the small hole on back.
  Inventor Ron Cannon says he saw the need for an easily removable mounting apparatus that could provide a secure and fixed mounting point for attachments on bale spears.
   “Bale spears have no practical mounting surface for attaching ropes, chains, cables and so forth to lift objects,” says Cannon. “When an attachment is wrapped around the spear, there is potential for slippage that can damage the object or equipment while creating an extremely dangerous condition for the operator and others nearby. The CannonLift locks in place so there’s no danger of slippage when lifting.”
  A big advantage, he says, is that you don’t have to remove the spear from your implement. “You don’t have to switch to a bucket or grapple - you can just take the device out of your toolbox and slip it onto the bale spear.”
  The device is designed to fit most commercial bale spears and has a maximum load capacity of 10,000 lbs. “A photo on our website shows us using the CannonLift to change a flat tire on a gooseneck trailer. We were able to lift one side of the trailer right off the ground,” says Cannon. “However, you should not exceed the load capacity of your spear or tractor.”
  The CannonLift sells for $99.99 on Tractor Supply Company’s website (www.tractorsupply.com).
