I have been wanting to fab a set of forks for my loader, but wasn't finding any "cheap" forklift forks to start the project.
My brother was up a couple weeks ago and we were talking and he said "why do they have to be those type forks...they are so overbuilt for your purposes, why not just use something else".
So, we start wandering around the place and found some more steel pipe like I used for my boom pole,IH 1000 Loader Boom Pole
and decided to give that a shot.
A couple hours later we had the rough idea together.
It lifts really well and is very convenient.
All my implements and 'stuff' will now be put on pallets and I can move it all around without always getting on and off the loader.
I painted them white for high visibility.
Really wish my brother lived closer...who knows what kinds of projects we would be making.
