Too bad that it's just a bit too large for the 1886FL :D :D

 

From the ad:

Fork Mounted Snow Plow For Fork Truck Or Tractor 6FT. Blade Just Slide Forks In And Plow, Angles Also.

He wants to make sure he has the weight for traction, just keep pouring it in the box.

With that big ole box on the back of the 1886FL, I doubt that getting enough weight in it to get traction would ever be a problem.

 

If I had the shop, tools, and know how, I wouldn't mind fabbing up something like that.  With the front remote for the hydraulics you could even have hydro angle :D :D :D

Most fork lifts are hung up if you spit in front of the drive wheels. I would hate to see the wrecker bill if you got one out in the snow!

Might work pretty good on the bigger Forks but I know it won't work on our little old Hyster LP gas Fork.That thing gets stuck in 2" of snow.I might work OK if we had good tires on it and about 1000 lbs in the box.

That would most likely be best used by the off-road forklifts like this:

That would probably be great for the large farm tractor for lifts like the picture, not so much for the ones designed for concrete wear houses. I can see a giant one of those mounted to a telehandler and being used to clear parking lots. Lol!
