 Level pallet forks

This may be a dumb question but my first tractor has not yet been delivered and I'm curious. Say you have pallet forks on your loader and you are carrying a load downhill. Is there a mechanism to keep the load level? Or do you need to tweak the bucket tilt manually to keep from dumping the load?

First: there are no dumb questions here.

Second: yes, you would have to manually adjust the level of the load as you go. Once you play with it for a couple minutes it will be easy to see how it works.

Thanks Mark. I thought maybe when you bought a set of pallet forks there was a self-leveling mechanism. They seem so expensive to buy I figured there had to be a reason Smile

kwschumm, are you looking at front pallet forks? If so, what make and price? The prices I've been quoted seem extremely high, making me consider welding as a new hobby.

 Level pallet forks

I made a set of forks using 2"x3"x .090" thick tubing. I tack welded a length of the same material across the top of my bucket. I drilled 1/2" hole on each fork and bolted it on the bucket using 1/2" bolts. This allowed me to remove just the forks via two bolts. I've used it to lift about 500 lbs per load of roof shingles to place on the roof when I reroofed the 30'x40' shop.

JFarms, no I'm not actually shopping for pallet forks. From time to time I can see how they'd be useful, but at the price they're asking I think I can do without. Right now I'm planning a retaining wall and will need to get a bunch of blocks down a hill. But I'm in no hurry, so I'll just load them up into my truck and drive 'em down. Eventually they will all get there. Like you, though, I'm gonna learn how to weld and get a welder so I can start making some simple yet useful stuff myself.

 Level pallet forks

It depends on how you are going to use your FEL, but I personally use the pallet forks more than the dirt bucket. I move a lot of machinery and metal.

I had my loader built with the quick-attach mechanism that allows for quick changeover and it will accept any Bobcat or other standard attachment that I might want from the local rental yard.

The forks were expensive, but I don't regret the purchase. They are small and thin to get under things. They are easily adjustable for width without tools. They are 48" long and will handle a full ton.

plots1, those look pretty darn good! It looks like a good and simple "first welding" project. My brother is visiting next week and he does some welding so I'll have to pick his brain. Thanks for the incentive!

Plots1, I'm guessing the welding tools may cost less than the cost of front forks, but you said "they install the same way the bucket does." Did you buy brackets or build them yourself. If you bought them, where and at what cost?
