Installed the THANG and cut about ten acres yesterday. After the initial inspection and installation, I had some doubts. I thought how is the world is this THANG going to accomplish everything advertised.
Well after about five minutes of cutting and realising the ingenious mechanical principle, I was amased. The chains have been retired..... ..

Russ -

Yep, I installed mine recently too. It simply pushes it down when when it wants to come up and vice versa. One thing I'll be doing though is taking some 80 grit sandpaper (or whatever) to the corners of those blocks. Adjusting the crank on my lift adjustment (right side lift arm), my hand came around on the crank and caught the corner of the Thang's stopping block. Put a nice 1" gash in my thumb. Yep, those corners are indeed sharp when you've got a crankin' hand coming toward them.

I kept my chains simply for holding the hog way up when pulling into the woods (little rocky). I made my chain system from a series of loop hooks, regular pulling hooks, and such. So far, my 3-point area is working well together and each part does what its intended purpose is.

I know it is hard for Missouri boys like us to believe (show me being our motto and all) but I told you you would like it.
That old Bamma boy done good!
