My owners manual lists tire pressures for the fork lift attachment. I want one... does anybody have a picture of one? How much will it lift and how high?

Thanks

They are very rare. You can check our Manuals Section for the brochure and manual. If it isn't there, try www.Simpletractors.com    Good Luck, Rick

I think everyone wants one....I have a line on two of them, and neither will sell.  I won't pass on the next one that's available....kicking myself for passing one up 2 years ago. 

My buddy has one and sent me a teaser last week when he was loading up a tiller he shipped my way.  Some friend, huh? =]  I had a B series trancher, and even offered to trade that for the forklift.  He wouldn't do it, but ended up with my trencher anyway :wallbanging:

 

I cannot seem to load the pics I have of it....I'll have to try uploading again later.

 

I had a few vid clips of it, and a bunch more pics, but they died with my old phone.  I'll ask him for a few more teasers.

That would look good on my 112.  I wouldn't even have to take the mower deck, I don't have, off!

   Vintageironcollector  I would love to hear what he wants for the lift when you find out, just for reference.  I know I cannot afford one of those

Well my uncle asked a couple of years ago and since the forks weren't there, and the guy wanted the original price for it, he asked if the man that has it to throw in some counterweights to compensate for the forks and so far nothing has been said.

This attachment pretty much takes over a tractor...you would need a dedicated machine, as it requires the removal of the lift system, and has a full length subframe that wouldn't allow for a deck.  I'm not sure they ever offered one that would fit a 112, or any of the longer frame machines (variables and hydros).  There was an early (B-1) and a late type (B-1 though late B-10/12) of this attachment.  I only know of one mfg# for the subframe, however...#2016983.  The main difference in them was the pump mounting.

MFG'ed by Henry Manufacturing, also made several other variants for other garden tractors, that's the most i could find out.

 

In my manual it shows the 2 nd type for all models, from the B-1 to the B-112.

Huh, that's interesting.  Perhaps it is a later manual and they offered alternate mounts?  I didn't think they were even offering the forklift attachment after the B-10's.  The B-112 is 4" longer than the earlier tractors, and certainly wouldn't allow the subframe to bolt up without modification.  Then there would likely need to be longer hoses, etc.  This is from my manual:

Yes, first and second type.  The image above was from the second type.  I did some digging in my brochures, and the Big Ten ('65) is the last AC brochure that the forklift shows up in.  Interestingly, the Danuser A-10 Post Hole Digger doesn't show up until the next year, for the B-10L/B-12.  I dont think those attachments overlapped by model year.  Just hadn't noticed before.
