Spot on! I am going to figure out a way to add this to my tractor. I think it may be fairly simple to do. If I proceed in that direction, I'll post some pics.Make fit the back of your tractor....
thanks! I just about fell out of my chair when I found I had won considering how much these go for on Amazon.How did you do?....Ya dun good
I'd been pondering getting a forklift of some kind for a long time. I even penciled out building one out of a hand truck. When I saw this one up for bid, I couldn't let it pass.I have one similar to that. I really like it.
I'm sure you'll like it also.
Good thought. Might be a bit more complicated because I will still want to be able to use it off the tractor.After you mount it on your tractor ,put a 12 volt winch in the place of the hand crank,with winch control near steering wheel.
Nice work. I use a couple of those at work for changing heavy motors. They make a plate to go across the forks and it is very handy. Very nice score on that!I got legs!
I finished making some legs for the forklift. This is what the factory legs look like:

This is what I was able to build:

The hard part was finding the caster mounting plates. They're not available separately from the factory.
Once those were found, it was just a matter of drilling all the holes; making some spacers to adjust the clearance of the casters; and welding the mounting plates to the square tubing.
I used 2x 2x 1/8 tubing and the caster mounting plates are also 1/8 thickness, so everything is very stout.
I haven't decided if I will paint the legs, but for now the unit is fully functional.
