I know we talked about this in the past and can't seem to find some of the threads. I am looking for idea's. I just (or very soon will) walked into a freebee. Used forks from a fork lift. I have the quick tach on the fel of my tractor. Have we ever talked about how to fab a carrier for used fork lift forks into a system for the quick tach on our tractors? I have a few idea's but am looking for more plus any thing I should NOT do or should! do!!!
Thanks guys

Start by using topic search in the top right corner of this screen. Search by "loader forks" and you will find the most recent thread, started by Beagle.

The basic frame is the same regardless of which style of forks you have, the mounting style of the forks determines the fine points.

Have a look at my picture # 18 for the basic idea.

Best of luck.

Brokenarrow,
I've posted the latest link I can think of below. Fabricating a quick attach frame for your forks should be a relatively easy project. I need to do the same thing. The simplest way might be to buy a quick attach plate that already has the mounts cut into it. You can get them for $125 or so at larger implement dealers. They may not look as nice as a tube frame mounting system though.

Have fun with this project.
Dave
