    Fork backrest ?

    I see you are re-designing the pallet fork. I bought your fork, frame and other items to go with the frame. I did not get the backrest for the frame. Do you have any plans to make your backrest wider, to cover more fork area from side to side? maybe edge to edge of the frame.

    Not saying this inquiry will go unanswered, but your best bet to get Artillian's attention is to email him thru the link in his signature. I know from experience

    I have the backrest and have never felt like it needed to be wider. You have to remember that making things bigger adds more weight which reduces the useful loading capability of the a 1 or 2 series loader, which is general what artillian designs his stuff for. I have forked 4x4 pallets that are 5-6 feet tall do not ever recalling wanting the fence any higher than it is. I agree though when you look at it, it does seem on the small side. However, it works pretty well.

    I agree with this. You don't need the backrest to be as wide as the carriage. Even piling brush on the forks it is more than enough.

    Many good points have been made so far, but here's the low down.

    The new back rest will be the full width of the rails. This is the only way it will work on all of the different pallet fork frame designs. That new skid steer mount really screwed things up! The good news is that we're also trying to get the cost down and also do away with the cleats that screw to the frame tubing. The new design should come out of the box and go straight onto the frame with no installation required. And again, lower cost!

    With most of what has been said I would have to agree. However, I have had two logs fall from my forks when picking them up last fall, fall back towards me. Luckily I was able to stop them by grabbing them and letting them fall to the side (Diameter may be 6" or so). I normally try to not pile higher than my frame, but one log was just a bit higher than normal once I picked it up with the others. When I was lifting the load to place the logs into my dump bed the top log came back enough to slide over the frame. Had the bracket been on, it would have stopped it. Being full length, should a log try to fall back, there is no room to fall close to me or the tractor.

    Do you have a ballpark estimate of the new backrest weight, cost and availability? I would sure like to get one!

    Nothing specific. It's being worked on, and the design keeps getting better and better in the process.
