Here is something I built a few years ago,it is a lift sling that fits on the 3pt hitch of my 80hp Ford tractor.I used to use it to move cars and trucks around the salvage yard.I have picked almost every size vehicle up with it from a little Mazda 808 to a full sized,extended wheelbase Ford one ton.Now I know it's a large tractor,but the same idea could be used to build one for a garden tractor to move other garden tractors around.







I know it's not a Case so don't shoot me,but this is the tractor that I use with the lift sling.

I like it, that should be a handy thing to have around! I had to look at it awhile to figure out how it works but I presume it lifts the frame just in front of the axle? For moving our tractors it seems to me that an extra snowblower attachment mount (or other attachment mount) could be used to lock onto the tractor's snap fast system. Or, maybe just have pads for the front wheels to set on. I have thought from time-to-time that it would be nice to have the ability to easily move a non-running tractor without damaging it. One of my recent acquisitions was moved with a set of pallet forks which did some minor damage to the drag link and travel control lines so that is not a good option.

In this case the belting usually rests against the vehicle bumper or frame,then I have J hooks that hook to the axle.The tractor's hydraulics then lift the vehicle.

Maynard: That's some Ford tractor you have, it certainly didn't upset me posting it. I bet it has all the bells and whistles. Nice fabrication and engineering work.I have been debating getting a three point for my AC WD45 tractor. Would like to be able to lift heavy objects. I got a pallet of fire wood the other day and was thinking how nice it would it be to be able to take it off the truck with a tractor with and put it right into the garage. Only problem the wife really hates that tractor and is trying to make me sell it.
Glad you got to posting the photos, you have a lot of cool stuff going on up there!
