Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6109463.

A lifting device which includes a frame and an elongated boom having a lower end pivotally connected to the frame along a pivot axis. The lower end of the boom has a counterweight connected thereto offset from the pivot axis. The counterweight has a center of gravity which is movable with respect to the pivot axis of the boom. The counterweight can be freely pivotal, fixed, or partially fixed with respect to the boom.
