Ever since I saw this pic, I have been figuring out how I could make one,

BH Fork Lift.jpg

 

I finally found something to make the forks from. It is 2-1/2" X 1" bar stock. I will use a piece of 2"X2"X1/4" wall square for the cross piece. I have a 3/4" round for the bars to hook to. The width will be adjustable up to 24" wide. Forks will be 30" back from the mount. I'm hoping I can set the top link mount a bit higher to make it tilt some as it lifts. Won't be able to go very high, but should work to carry things around on.

I hope to get more time on this today and more pics for you folks!

You better get that grader blade finished before you start on another project.

 

This is actually for a cat 0 but I have been using it on my Allis 5015.

I'm still noodling the grader blade. I think I will have to shorten the height on it to give room to lift it.

I like your set up, that's pretty cool.

These small forks are hard to find... I wouldn't mind finding a set myself.

Update! Got it all built today! First coat of Rust Reformer is on! Here's some pics.

First is where I had things tacked together.

Here I am trying out the top link location to get the tilt right!

Image004.jpg     Image006.jpg

 

This is how it looks from out back.

Here's the lift with the forks on.

Image008.jpg     Image009.jpg

 

The forks move pretty easliy in or out!

I added some pieces to keep things away from the tires.

And here is the first load.

If weather lets me, I'll have some paint on it tomorrow!
