That's quite the haul! It sounds like it was a great day! :thumbs:  :thumbs:

 

It's neat when forum members are able to get together in person like that.

Nice trading session - your $$$ for his equipment.  Glad to see your using good straps & chains to hold that load on not like so many that use the dinky little 1" red shoe box straps.

You sure have all the good contacts Rick!

Been using 1" straps for years over thousands of miles and never had the slightest hint of a problem with them. At least when hauling 700lbs tractors.

Rick picked an almost perfect day to visit.

 

Sun was out and the temp was in the high 50's.  Pretty warm for this time of year here in NE Ohio.

 

Cat, I think a certain actor/NRA president had the answer to your question :D :D :D

Forklift looks pretty handy! Suprised it can handle that much weight.  Little smaller than a big FTK would be and able to go over rough ground then.  I bet you use that alot.  I always wanted a big tractor with loader and Forks on it, not a bucket. Came close to having, but sold the MM before I finished it.  Think would have to have lots of pallets and places to put such items to be the best way to use a fork set-up.  Have also thought of making 3pt lift, but kinda limited on what you can do with that type.

Grump,  that forklift is handier than pockets on a shirt.

 

As for the lifting capability, the mast is 'rated' for 750#.  However there is no pop off on the valve for the lift, and it can, and has, lifted quite a bit more.  The original owners told me that they regularly lifted more than 750# and had to have the forks straightened more than once.

 

As a matter of fact I have also 'over loaded' it a time or two as these pics show :D :D :D

That tractor with the duals on it is probably a bit over 1000#.
 
Also you are spot on about pallets. I managed to find some plastic pallets and they are great for moving/handling attachments.  Especially the heavier awkward ones like the snow casters , Sickle-Mo, and Flail-Mo:

The only real downside to it is that fact that the forks are on the front and it's front steer.  That means the it's not quite as nimble as a traditional rear steer forklift, but the positives overcome that.
