    Forks in action (but not moving pallets) -(video)

    Lots of questions recently about what could be done with forks other than to move pallets.
    We recently worked a project where we used the forks in several different ways.

    After seeing this, even stingy Levi is thinking about sheling out the to buy forks!

    Hope you enjoy...and don't forget to subscribe over on youtube so that you can see the next episodes.
    I've been doing a lot of work in this particular yard.

    I built a set of tines out of 1.50" solid steel bar,,, 36" long,,,
    trying to rip out some small roots (under 2") I bent the cold rolled steel like wet noodles,,,,

    The forks are 48" long,,, and there are only 2 of them,,, how soon would they bend??

    My ropes do not scrub rust onto what I lift,,,,

    I have dug holes with my forks. Put them together and they act like a couple 36" long spades. ;)

    You noticed! Wait for "episode #3" of this series...you'll see more of those shirts, and some KBOGH action.

    (Did you notice the diff lock pedal action in this one)?
