 Fork lift from Front End Loader

I have a lifting "opportunity" that will extend over some period of time. I have seen (on this board?) some fork tines that clamp/bolt onto the FEL bucket.

Has anyone seen these? are they readily available or are they only custom made?
I need them for a BX2230.
Thanks!

Thanks! It would seem that the type that hook on the top of the bucket and rest on the bottom would be the strongest. Ever seen any of these?

Thanks again.

 Fork lift from Front End Loader

I had a BX and the Rankin forks.

They work fine with the BX bucket as designed, in fact they attached more securely to the BX than to my Deere 4100.

Be aware that your already limited lift capacity in this model will be compromised even more. The forks weigh 90 pounds and will push your weight/balance envelope way forward.

You will still be able to pick up loads that weigh up to 300 pounds, at least in the lower half of your lift range.

You will need about 800 pounds of rear ballast to do it safely and maximum inflation pressure on all tires.

Also on a FEL the lift capacity goes down and the ballast requirements go up as the load is moved forward. You get maximum lift right at the pivot points for the loader bucket and that is where most manufacturers specific the FEL capacity. As Mark said, you have to subtract bucket and fork weight. But if the load is very far forward, the capacity is even less.

 Fork lift from Front End Loader

I agree completely with the comments about reduced capacity with bucket-mounted forks.

The other point I would make is that with fork set INSTEAD of the bucket there is a marked increase in visibilty. The bucket really blocks your view of the load and for delicate or precise placement it almost always requires a second person to spot for the operator.

We have this problem with the fold-away forks on our big TLB's. With the forks behind the bucket you have a huge blindspot.

I don't know if the same setup is available for the BX-series but the quick-tatch setup for my L-series is fantastic. It goes on the loader arms and uses the original bucket with absolutely no modifications required. I put it on using hand tools only in about 3 minutes. It is also VERY easy to make alternate plates for since it only needs 4 pins to connect it to anything else. I made up a combination base-plate which acepts a trailer hitch, forks and a snowplow. Next is an adaptor to mount 3pth implements in place of the bucket.

Best of luck.

I also like the quick attach option and I actually have that on my FEL. I use a pair of heavy duty forks for a skid steer loader. The visibility is good and they are also a good bit narrower than my 72" bucket. With these forks, the loads can be pushed right back against the rear to maximize capacity.

You guys are great, you saved me time and money - not to mention the stress on "ole Orange."

DRankin really wasted the idea with the load limitation - wow, but it sure makes sense. Thanks!

Okay then, where can a fella find those 3pt type fork lifts?

Lemme try that approach.
Thanks again.

Rankin (no relation) also lists a set of carry-all forks that fit the BX series nicely. They will carry 1000 pounds and retail usually for less than $150. I have two sets of these and can recommend them.

I can point you to a link if you are interested.
