"Best Labor-Saver On My Farm"

"I put a forklift mast on the rear of my Farmall M and attached a 2 by 8-ft. platform to the forks. It works great for painting farm buildings, roofing, repairing overhead doors, erecting buildings, and doing many other jobs. It's the best labor-saver on my farm," says Larry Gangnes, Argusville, N. Dak.

"The work platform raises 12 ft. off the ground so you can paint up to 19 ft. off the ground safely without a ladder. There's a hydraulic control on the platform that lets you lower it without running the engine. We keep this on the tractor all year round."
