Many years ago when we built our shed, we needed a quick way to set up the 60 foot long trusse's, so I made this extension for the big crawler loader. We needed top to be around 40 feet high to allow for the trusses to swing under the boom and not hit or bind. The extension was held centered in the bucket by chains and binder's. The top was held by several cables running down and out to the top of the big bucket. To operate, I just rolled the bucket forward then short chained the top of trusses to the boom top. Then roll the bucket back and raise the loader giving the needed height. Then back into position to set on the posts. I lifted and placed all trusses with no problem. An attachment like this can be a life saver when you need it. thanks; sonny
