    Thanks Reggie. Loads about 1/4 ton or a little larger. I think I may have a source for scrap channel 5 or 6 inches wide with maybe an inch or two flange. Flat plat on the bottom should do it.
    What about connecting to bucket? I was thinking about making brackets, welding them to the bucket and fab round rod to the forks for attaching. That way they would adjust easy. I guess we could drill and bolt to the bucket, but then they are only in one position. Make sense?

    Forks for Tractor Front Loader

    A friend of mine has a small 28 horse tractor with a front loader. He would like some forks so he can move small palletts and other stuff.

    I thought I would ask and see if anyone has any ideas/recommendations wrt design and type of metal? I seen a home brew set with 1 1/4 solid bar stock with welded brackets that slip on the loader. I also seen flat stock that affix to the loader with bolts, reenforced on the bottom for strength. Recommendations appreciated. Thanks
Working...
