 4110 pallet Forks

I have a chance to buy a set of forks off a small fork truck: what all will I need to use them on my 410 loader in place of the bucket? Would it be practical to attempt to purchase the part I need that attaches to the loader,I'm sure the forks can be altered to fit. I sure would appreciate any and all the advice and knowledge that is on this board, Come on guys help the Old Man out!! The guy wants $75 for the forks.

Depending on how your FEL is setup, it may be a VERY easy thing to do.

If youlook at my picture # 18 you can see a very basic set I made as a prototype using just 'C Channel' instead of forks. They will lift 1,000 pounds and haven't bent. The type of forks you are looking at are likely over-kill, even a small forklift is usually service rated for 3+k. pounds, which is likely more than double that of your FEL. The ultimate break point is often 3 times that again. The extra strength means extra weight, extra weight means reduced useable lift capacity.

Basically all you need is the base like that in my picture, a frame which has pins to match your FEL's setup and a way to mount the forks. Are the forks you are looking at the type that mount on a flange, or go over a tube?

Best of luck.

Used forks go for about $150 here so it sounds like a good deal. Do you have a quick attach loader? Now that you've got all that welding equipment you should be able to fabricate a quick attach frame to hold the forks. Then you can just drop the bucket and grab the forks in a few seconds. Have fun.

Jonesie.... If you want to do your own welding I will be happy to send you detailed pics of my Rankin forks to copy.

But....Check on the price of the Deere adapter plates and include that in your costs. Given the cost of green parts you might be close to the commercial product price.

The Rankin product is available on the west coast for around $600-$700

Hey that looks great on your Tractor! I bought the Forks for $50. If I use them or not I made and offer and he took it. So now I've got the forks.
I'll take all the pictures and any information I can get. Yep' I've got enough Welders to start a Fab Shop, and they were really hard to hide from the Warden. I'll probably have a Welder Sale one of these days. If I ever learn to keep my mouth shut and quit trying to buy by the Dozen. I'm really getting good with my welding I can weld but a guy told me I would never be a Welder> ( I wonder what he meant?) but at my age I'm having fun. The Young Soldier from In. that was recently killed in Iraq was in my Son's Company, this kinda makes everything else in my life seem of little importance! I need all the things to keep me busy, but as a lot of you know Children never grow up in your mind. I'm 74 years old and still worry about my Family and their Families! enough said I'm Sorry!
Yes would like to have pictures!!

Look a pictures 3, 4 & 5 in my profile to see how I made the Quick tach part of forks. Got pins at Atwoods (farm and ranch store) Yes the real forks seemed to cut my lift ability somewhat. But will still lift more than i can. Can post more picts if ness. Hope this helps

Would any of you have a set of drawings that I might copy to be able to make up my own setup?
Thanks

Jonesie, I've found that when fabricating this sort of thing that making a cardboard model will get you close enough to cut out the steel pieces. You can tape cardboard pieces together and trim as needed until it fits. Then use the model as a guide to cut the steel. Do you have a chop saw? They're cheap and well worth the money.

My thoughts and prayers to the young man who died in Iraq and his family. Also for your son's safe return.
Dave

Drawings????

Now I know why that fella said what he did about you being a welder, Laughing out loud, all you need is a tape measure, a piece of soapstone, and a area of concrete floor to sketch it all out on.

Seriously, if your machine already has a QT FEL bucket, just measure up the 'hitch' portion of your bucket and reproduce it on the back of the frame that will eventually hold the forks. It appears like that is what Redwing did, his also appears to be a first class job BTW.

The forks in Redwing's pic's are the 'flange' type of mount, I went with the 'tube' type of mount. You will need to go with what your forks are unless you want to make up a set of forks also.

Best of luck.

I went to the Scrap Yard where the guy sold the Fork truck that my forks came from. I had the guys take a torch and cut the bars that the forks hooked on to. Now I've got a bunch of junk that will have to be Fabricated to fit on my loader.
