I added in a second top link attachment point. This lets the forks stay more level when raised.

I'm really liking the wheel chair lift section. That is a nice addition to this.

That is real nice. How much can it hold? Mine can only hold about 200lbs. If I stand on the forks(260#), the front wheels come off the ground. Good Luck, Rick

Depends on which tractor it's on. Alice has more lift than the FF. Forks will handle more than the tractors can lift! But it's probably in that neighbor hood.

What is the size of the lift gate? Looks good on there and gives me an idea for a replacement of the wooden box we use now. Which is probably the most used attachment I have.

I'll have to measure it!

The lift gate is 29" wide by 39" long. Sides are just under 2" tall. I like the flap at the end to keep a chair from rolling off, works for keeping things from sliding off the back end.
