Nice job They sure come in handy.I have most of my stuff on pallets and the forks make it very easy to move things around.I have a Steiner front mower that I am mounting a forklift attachment on but it has been an on going project for several years now.

No paint today! Had 55MPH South wind over night blowing every thing to the North fence. Got a few showers, 0.08" of rain. Now the wind is 30MPH out of the North. I am tired of the wind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is with some paint on it.

I used Rustoleum Regal Red. Got to use my HF Mini gun to spray it. I also added about a half capful of this hardener to it.

I hooked the main frame to the tractor so the wind wouldn't blow it over. Also added two 5/16" eye bolts to tie things off with.

And here it is all back together. I can let it lounge there until the paint has a bit more cure time on it.

If I can help with measurements or such, just holler! The main thing is to get it set on the ground and tilted to the back. Then make an attachment point with your top link horizontal there! That's what makes it tilt up when you lift it. I just clamped that attachment point until I got what I wnated.

I think I'll build a smaller version for my winch operated sleeve hitch, looks like a winner.
