By virtue of the use of a single rigid arm, an
implement can be pushed as efliciently as it can
be drawn.
What I claim' as my invention is:
1. A tractor hoist comprising a base bracket
adapted for attachment to a tractor vehicle, a
face plate upon the base bracket, said face plate
having a horizontally disposed hinge lug and an
hinge connected to the lug, said block having an
arm member normally extending horizontally
outwards from the face plate and adapted for
connection to an implement and having a hy
draulic cylinder formed therein, said cylinder
having a ram adapted to extend from the hinged
end of the arm towards the face plate to engage
the face of the cam to raise the arm member.
