I set several tall & heavy poles for my pole barn using my 8N. I got a 12"2x8 and cut a v notch in the end. I then used a 50" rope and hooked it at one end under the rear end of the tractor and the other end about 3/4 up the pole with one end of the pole by the hole and the other end set up on blocks as high as I could lift it. I put the 2x8 in the middle of the rope slanted towards the pole. I then drove the tractor forwards pulling the pole up. It helps to have someone keep the 2x8 straight in line with the rope. It also helps if the hole has a slanted side to keep the pole lined up.
