I don't blame you at all for using a cherry picker to mount that drill. We have several of those drills where I work and I know how heavy they are to move around! Good idea but I would be careful of overloading so you don't bend the bumper mounts if your driving over rough ground. My 2 cents worth Greg NE

Thanks for the warning.
I just can't 't live with the slop in that tube with a 5' carrier width.

The aluminum flat bar is for finding the right bend angles before I prepare the stay strap ends.
I don't have any use for those stay straps so here I go.
You know I'm tired of not having anywhere to carry stuff when an implement is on the back and in tight spaces that prevents a trailer on the front.

Happy New Year,

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I note the number plate with the Arabic numerals on it - where would that be from?

Your comment on the slop in the hitch reminded me that there are inexpensive accessories on the market designed help reduce the slop. I thought about getting one but haven"t gotten around to it yet. Here"s one example in the link. There are other designs. I haven"t used it myself so I can"t vouch for how well it works.

Thanks for the good info.
I'll probably get one and also use the stay straps.
That's a 5' span and the angle framing is maybe 1/16" to an 1/8". I'd hate to bend the hec out of it with a little weight out at the ends.

Happy New Year,
