I could really use something like this. I often need to lift, move and/or load heavy and unwieldy items and this DIY crane would be just the ticket. It could be improved by the addition of an electric or PTO winch from a tow truck. In fact, as long as you have the mobile power source you might as well have front, center and rear PTOs and perhaps a hydraulic system. It could start out simple and evolve over time as your needs change.
