    Titan Forks Storage

    I put together a quick and dirty, roll around stand for my forks and forks rack. I can pull the forks rack off with my loader arms, spin the stand around and mount the forks. To remove, I unmount the forks, spin it around and drop the rack back down on the stand with the loader arms. Roll the stand out of the way. Total cost? Maybe 25 bucks?

    looks good. I don't care to pull the tines off every time I take the forks off myself.

    Ive only had mine for 2 weeks so I will be looking to rearrange my garage and find a good storage spot.

    Nice fabrication job. It certainly is a compact way to store them but like the previous poster, I'm not a fan of having to mount and dismount those heavy tines every time I need to use the forks. For me the less I have to manhandle those tines the better.

    Nice job . . . I went this route to reduce the footprint of several pieces of equipment. (I have scaffolding for high work in the shop and house.) The forks go up there on the second level still in the pallet that the box blade sits on. The forks are easily removed and re-attached as necessary.

    I do like this idea but would question ballast when removing the BB from the 2nd level then having to remove said ballast to attach the BB. But I don't have my ballast on very often with the rear blower in the winter and mostly mowing duties in the summer.

    I'm not sure what he is using for ballast but with a ballast box it wouldn't be an issue.

    1. Assuming tractor is setup with loader and ballast box for normal operation
    2. Swap out bucket, attach forks
    3. Remove box blade from top shelf
    4. Remove ballast box and attach box blade
    5. Swap out forks, attach bucket as required

    I get the flow, just for me the extra steps would be a negative as my ballast box isn't on very often, but it would be on to remove anything from the shelves.

    also, my BB is not QH compatible as it is ORANGE and was a cheap price 2nd hand.

    I get it, just busting on you, my ballast box is on my iMATCH and it's still a PITA at time to put it on just move something quick, but I do it anyway.
