    Well I can't show it because I didn't take pictures. I used my forks to take out concreted 6x6 posts holding a wooden gate and the rest of the 4x4 fence posts. I slide the two forks to the middle position and put the post in between. I wrapped a steel cable around the forks and posts and lifted them right up out of the ground as easy as you please. Worked good because it didn't disturb the hole much for the new ones to go in. Not to mention I carried all the new fencing with the tractor instead of by hand. Mighty handy.

    Here is some of the finished product.

    I use mine for lots of stuff but loading 1,000 lb freight boxes full of hides in trucks to ship out is real handy!Click image for larger version.

    Good advice on the ballast! These were really light loads coming off the truck. In the next load I had a heavy safe, at just under 500lbs (plus the weight of the forks) - for that I grabbed the box blade on the back - it's the heavier 400 lb Frontier blade. 4wd and slow going just to be sure, and got the load low right away. Tires are loaded also, but I probably should have still had more weight in back...

    Great idea, both with the pallet and the way you moved them on the ROPS / forks!
