Has anyone built a work platform for their loader?
We have used our Artillian forks several times as a ladder/scaffold. Right now, we're just using a pallet for the platform. However, I would rather have something better with the following features:
- Removable safety railings.
- shelf for temporary tool/parts storage
- maybe a step for getting a bit higher than the H120 can lift.
- stretching the idea, maybe a fold up ladder to quickly get up and down.
It is much nicer to work from this platform than from a ladder.
Something like the "Big Tool Rack" advertised here might be pretty close to what I'm looking for if it could be used with the loader forks. However, it is pretty expensive.
Since I don't have any welding equipment, I was thinking of building it out of wood. Perhaps using a pallet as the foundation.
What should I use for railing? I could use galvanized pipe, or perhaps build the rails out of wood as well?
