    Yes the swing is the thing. You never can get level so that you have an easy time going either way.

    Really, you do want a power boom lift.

    In a lot of cases it would have been better without those things. Someone would have had to get something that was adequate to pick something then.

    For $300 or so- maybe one of these would work? 6 bolts to get it on and off. I think you could rig up some kind of power swing, or a gear reduction hand chain drive swing.

    Myself I think I'd look for a take off service crane, but this would work if you're in no hurry.
