The Meadows Mills Boom Pole has an extra latch point in the frame for tether straps to stabilize the load in transit and latches for secondary tether straps or chains to secure the load from turning or swaying (swaying and turning loads have an increased risk of tipping the host machine). There is an under hook or pin eye attachment for easy hook up and multiple pin eye locations to adapt to varied loads where capacity and tipping point may be more important than length. The boom pole securely holds items in place in tight working conditions and it easily attaches with a tough and solid design made to withstand a heavy load. The robust 2x8x1/4 top tube ensures maximum load handling. Boom gussets at the top and bottom distribute the load across the entire attachment. Heavy duty 3/8″ hitch plates and lower gussets with additional gussets on the top rail provide secure attachment to your loader and superior strength when tilting and loading. This attachment is designed for skid steer and tractor host machines up to 150HP.
