    Blocking Implements

    Spent a little time placing all my implements up off the ground. I had a bunch of leftover 6x6s. Some of these dont get used much and Im paranoid of rust.

    All my implements are on pallets. Even my pallet forks. Not only does it keep them off the gravel and prevent rust, I can rearrange them easily. I don't have a big enough area to store them all where I can back up to each one if I stored them side by side. I'd love to have some pallet racking to store them vertically, I keep watching CL for something cheap and close.

    I would love to do that also. You can see in my picture, I have some stuff to get rid of this spring, leftovers from a kitchen remodel and last years pool. If I can get my building empty, I might be able to arrange them on pallets to where I can back into each one. But, then again, if they are on pallets, you just need pallet forks.

    I'm a pallet guy for storage also. Pallets are free and easily moved with a set of forks. Commercial shelving off Craig's List would be good.

    I needed scaffolding anyhow so I have implements on scaffolding which easily moves around the shop on wheels. Forks are stored in the box blade pallet on the second level. With 4 x 4'" ramps I can quick connect the tiller from the tractor, on or off.

    Rolling scaffolding would be ideal, but with the size and weight of the implements for my 5055E it would be pretty sketchy. Not even thinkable without concrete flooring, like my building currently is.

    I enjoy these threads about implement storage, but I need to construct the building first.
    However, all of my implements are stored on pallets to keep them off the ground.

    Pallets for me also - some under the pavillion/equipment shed and some outside.

    Pallets are very hard to come by around here. There is a fairly big pallet rebuilding place in town who pays businesses for them. The only place I can get any are at Tractor Supply - Im allowed to take what I want from the really broken ones by the dumpster. Some arent so bad that I can fix them to work well enough.

    Having forks has changed how I do a lot of things.

    I have gravel floor in my building, so no rolling anything. I did think about some kind of heavy duty metal shelving connected to my walls. That would leave the middle of my building empty. This building was built by the previous owner for his RV. Nice, high ceiling. Would like to run power to it and concrete the floor. Just need money first. Still looking.

    Indeed! Before I built the shop I stored on pallets covered by a tarp. It worked well except with pasture critters I had my challenges.

    The scaffolding in the picture is rated at 1100lbs. The tiller and box blade are in the 350lbs each range if I remember correctly. So with larger/heavier implements it would be a DIY project . . . something like 4 x 4" post in concrete with 2 x 4" cross members and bolted to the wall.

    I get a good pallet with every ton of livestock feed and wood pellets. Probably 8 to ten per year. Next time I go for feed I'm taking a load back and see if I can get a $2 - $3 dollar credit for each one as the supplier has to buy them anyhow. "Having forks has changed how I do a lot of things." . . . absolutely , I love having them.

    Power, concrete floor . . . heaven sent. And a radiant heater. . . . I just need a recliner and a big screen TV on the wall.

    Cement floor would be nice Yank. I have a 24X35 for my accessories now and a 2 car attached garage that I have my 2 tractors in. But next summer when I retire we are giving up a rented storage shed and moma wants to bring the vette home so next winter one of the tractors will end up in the unheated 24X35. Such is life.
