    Use forks with quick hitch

    I have run a search and did not find what I was after. Who has built an adapter for pallet forks, to be used on a quick hitch. Thanks.

    One approach I've seen several times is to drill or cut a hole in one of the forks. Then, a hitch ball can be temporarily mounted right to the fork. Not a receiver hitch, but allows one to move a trailer around.

    I replied to what I THOUGHT the OP was asking. However, now that I read it over several times again, I'm thinking my response doesn't answer his question.
    I thought he was asking for some sort of 2" receiver hitch to mount on the forks. Sort of like your new 2" receiver hitch mounted on the bucket.
    Now, that I read it again closely, it appears he is asking about forks for an iMatch???

    Anyway, sorry if I added more confusion to this thread.

    Sorry about the signature line. I have 2012 4105 with FIL. I built a set of quick attach forks . I have been kicking around the idea of building an adapter to use the forks on the quick hitch. I have seen the Artillian 3pt hitch adapter, and that is almost what i am wanting only in reverse. If that helps? In short to use the forks as a carryall. Thanks

    OK, so you built a set of forks that attach to the JDQA on your FEL. Now you would like to use them on the rear of the tractor where you have a QH (iMatch or similar) on your 3PH. Got it...I think.

    I have seen guys weld tabs on the rear of the forklift frame so they could use them on the rear as well. Check out post #12 of this thread on the forestry forum: 3 point fork lift??
