I've had several pallets around from implements I've purchased, but those were too big and didn't have a solid, flat surface on top. And they were busted up a little bit from their trip with a heavy implement. The one that was in the best condition appeared to have something growing on it. I disposed of all of them.

    So I built my own pallet that would double as a work platform. It's not to be used at serious heights, but sometimes it's very nice to have a nice, mobile platform just several feet high. I built the pallet so that it could be accessed with the forks from any direction. This way, if I used it to store something, I would have options for fitting it into tight places. I also added d-rings to all 4 corners. These are used to secure the load to the pallet and also secure the pallet to the fork frame. It ended up being a pretty fancy pallet, and would be seriously embarrassed in your typical warehouse. But it will be fine for my purposes. And it doesn't have anything growing on it.






    The pallet can be attached to the fork frame in either orientation using the lower chain slots on the fork frame:






    I have a threshold ramp that will make it easier to get wheeled objects up onto the pallet.

    It earned my supervisor's seal of approval:

    Only addition I'd consider is....

    Skin the bottom.. (1/2" plywood would work)..then it could not tip off the Forks when grabbing from the skinny side with a top heavy load load.

    The chains are a great addition...but the 1 way it can tip only so far...the other could get spooky as there is nothing "under " the fork.
    Skining the bottom would give a nice Tight fit with No wobble when picking from the narrow side.
    Otherwise you have everything else covered nicely.

    Wow, thanks guys. I switched the blades out while I had it up and can only plead to having a brain fart while doing it. At least I got them all the same.

    I doubt it will mow as well this way.

    It happens. :-)

    I was curious if you had it that way for a while because it would be interesting to see how raggedy the cut would be like that!

    Yep, I can remember that happening about 40 years ago, when I was a LOT younger. Never did figure out how they got that way.

    Was really happy when JD came out with the Load-N-Go brackets for MMM, but then really disappointed to find that they were only for the 60" deck. Of course I have a 54".

    After seeing them in videos and pictures and looking at my deck I decided that they probably could not do this for the 54" deck. Just too much difference in the 2 on the discharge side.

    So I started thinking about how to do this another way. I really liked the idea of being able to lift the deck with the FEL for servicing and blade changes.

    I have a Deck Dolly and looked at how it connects to the deck. It uses pins in the rear same as the tractor lift arms and then a single rod in front thru an existing hole in the deck making it easy to connect to the deck. So I decided since I have the Deck Dolly and for proof of concept I would just make a frame to attach to it for the fel to connect to. Here's the results.









    Here is the finished bracket bolted to the Deck Dolly.


    This is outstanding

    Boy, you sure would have been cussing them gator blades
