3-Pt. Boom Added To Sawmill
“Sometimes, when positioning logs on my sawmill, I need a way to lift and orient the logs. So, I decided to adapt my 3-pt. boom with a come-along to the frame of the mill,” says Mark Yax, Solon, Ohio.
  “I made some brackets that hold the boom’s 7/8-in. dia. pins and these straddle the mill’s bunk, which is made of 2 by 2 steel tubing. Where the top link would normally connect, I made a bracket using a chain hook that lets me easily adjust the lifting angle of the boom.
  “I simply attach the come-along to the end of the boom, which can easily be flipped over out of the way when not needed. It comes off easily if needed back on my tractor.”
