 Loader projects finished!

Just wanted to share my projects with you. I finished a snow blade and a set of forks for my 410 loader. Both are low-budget, picked up the forks and the blade cheap and the steel was from scrap.

The forks came off a 1000# hand operated, hydraulic jack, lift truck. Got them for $10. They are supposed to ride on a 1" round rod, but the one on the forktruck was bent to heck, so I adjusted them to ride on a plate instead. Turned out pretty good. Lifted a pallet of bricks with no problems.

The snow blade came from an equipment dealer. It is a blade that clamps on the top of a road grader to "throw" the snow off the end, so you don't get a big windrow. Got the blade cheap and made the frame from scrap tubing. Bought skids and springs from a plow parts place. Works good, rolls the snow out pretty good. Even handled the 6-8" of wet heavy crap we got a couple weeks ago.

Enjoy!

Craig, your projects are truly inspiring. I have made a few gadgets for my tractor as well. I retrofitted a newer model snow plow to fit on my old John Deere. It was very satisfying. I've got to have a snow blade like yours!! I have 400 ft of concrete driveway. That thing looks awesome!! Thanks for the pics.
