 Slip-On Pallet Forks

About a month ago I asked about the slipon pallet forks. Well, I must say, they are great! I bought a pair from BlueLine Engineering out in WA state. I have used them to move more stuff around then I ever thought...one of those things RogerL was famous for predicting.

They are excellent for moving brush.
I pick up my wood splitter and move it around, to height, etc.
My man lift "platform" is wonderful for getting those windows in on the second floor. Why anyone would feel safer on a ladder jack or pump jack...I'll never understand.
The man lift platform (8' long, 4' wide, and with handrails) makes for a wonderful work platform for moving stuff around, be it lumber, tools, firewood...anything you can scoup up with the bucket.

Suddenly, I can carry anything, move anything, and needn't worry about fitting it in the bucket and such.

Not to mention an easy platform for holding spools of wire, etc.

I've tip them upside down, trying to make them fall off, and so far haven't been able too.

Can you tell I'm happy??

Bruce: I share your enthusiasm about forks. In my case, itís quite a feeling to move a bunch of seriously heavy stuff around almost without effort. I still don't know of another way to get my box scraper into the pickup bed with the cap on.

Without wishing to diminish your enthusiasm, I've got to recall that there were a bunch of safety related comments to the earlier discussion. I note that several days ago on a board I sometimes scan that there were two separate instances or ruptured loader hoses discussed. These things do happen. I guess that part of being an adult is understanding and accepting or rejecting risks. I think it's good to keep in mind that the risks mentioned, however remote they are.

Yes, after posting I thought I should have commented on the dangers/safety precautions. My Zetor is some 9000 pounds or so and I have a 650 pound back blade out on the 3PT.

I have read the thread by (was it Mark??) about his 4100's rearend being tipped off the ground BY HAND with just empty forks mounted on the bucket...let alone with any load. WOW.

And regarding my manlift, I first tested the lift extensively, built it like a tank, strapped it to the loader, and never carried a man in it when raising or lowering (just my wife! Laughing out loud (NO, I DIDN'T)) Once it was up against the building, we'd either step out a window/door onto it or climb up with a ladder.

Interesting note: I could position the platform about an inch or so from the wall. Then when I lowered the 3PT hitch, the machine would "lean" forward that inch and come to "rest" against the wall. It couldn't have been much stiffer. Resting against lath pieces holding down the tyvek...so almost ideal.

Obviously one must assess their equipment, its reliability, and overall suitability to doing such things. If your spool valves leak or you have any hydraulic uncertainties, clearly this would be dangerous. We'd have the platform set up for maybe 30 minutes...and I was constantly checking to see if it had dropped any. I would never consider allowing anyone else to move the tractor, nor would I move with someone in the lift.

I'll bet it is more common to fall off a ladder than to bust a hydraulic hose. Besides I'd bet the loader would fall a little slower than a body off a ladder. You would probably run the same risk as you would with one of those high lift people buckets on a stick from the rental yard.

Believe me - you burst a hose - it'll fall FAST!
However - still think you'll fall off the ladder more often. Everything is relative.
