I'm interested in this type of boom pole that will go high enough to load items into the back of my pickup or trailer without having to mess with adjusting a top link.
I am wondering how heavy a load I can handle with this type? I'm thinking that it can probably handle the same amount of weight as the more common type with the top link, but am not sure.

It'll probably raise faster though, which may be a problem with hydraulics that tend to jerk.

If ScoutB or anyone else out there that are familiar with this type boom pole could give me some info on how they handle, it would be appreciated.

The length of a boom has depends on how high the 3-Pt lift will go. A bigger issue is how to keep the front end down so it doesn't come off the ground when lifting an implement. I'd add 16" from wheels and tires with the 2-PC wheel weights AND some extra weight hanging off the bumper. The N will lift most implements like plows, discs, cultivators, but don't plan on a Grain Drill, Combine, Picker, or Baler. I suggest to set boom top link to the shortest setting possible, attach Stabilizer Bars, and GO SLOW. You MIGHT be able to lift it into your pickup bed. Roll overs are the single most cause of accidents as fellas don't know how to lift or haul logs correctly. Pulling/hailing logs and other items is done properly from below the PTO shaft.
