    Rear forks vs carryall

    Help me decide if I should get rear forks and use a built out pallet as a carryall or get a prebuilt (plus plywood/decking) carry all. Photos and suggestions/reasoning my mind has not thought of are appreciated.

    I've never used rear forks, but I'd like to see the guys plans for the carry all in this video at the 1:30 mark:

    You can get the Carry-All frame from Tractor Supply for $129. Find yourself a plastic shipping pallet ($10-$15 on Craigslist) and build whatever you want on the pallet. The Carry-All frame will work for lifting pallets just like forks will. For $150 it seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Jim, I have to take issue with you on using the carryall frame for pallets. Only because I read "someplace" that they are not strong enough against twisting force unless they are "decked". The board/plywood deck allows the frame to lift 900#+ transferring all the twist to the back frame. I've got one sitting waiting to get a deck to haul my firewood carriers, it's been sitting for an entire summer!

    I don't know what the discussion is/was at "someplace" but I don't see how decking the carry all would prevent any twisting unless you are using a 1/4" thick solid steel plate for that decking. The County Line Carry-All that Tractor Supply sells is rated at 1000# lifting capacity without any decking. Like lifting anything else, it's all about loading and balance.

    That's a nice dumping carry all for sure. I'll have to do some research on twisting of prebuilt carryalls. My general thought was that with forks, it would be more universal to be able to just add a pallet with some walls/back to it.

    Yes you can use the TSC Carry all frame to lift pallets. But I have found it to be tough because the bottom of the carry all frame is made out of angle iron and the increased height/thickness of the angle iron makes it tougher to get them into a pallet.

    I have a bare King Kutter Carry-all frame that I want to build on this winter. I have used a pallet on it to give me a surface to haul things. ColonyPark is correct, the angle iron construction of a carry-all makes it harder, but not impossible, to pick up pallets. I'm sure a set of 3 point forks would be better at that. I suppose you could make an angle cut at the end of the carry-all to make slipping it into a pallet easier.

    Money wise, around here a set of 3-pt forks is about $370, while the carry-all is closer to $170...So, I guess it all depends on what you plan to do with it?...

    If you plan to move a lot of pallets... get the forks, and then build your self a nice set up to use as box or work station like some of the fancy carry-alls I've seen on here and youtube..

    Just be sure to have some weight on the front end or steering over a bump can get exciting!

    Looks a lot like pictures I've seen of Pats Easy Mover. Looks pretty handy.

    My Tractor Supply shows those frames at $149 and the reviews indicated some 'issues' with them...think I'd be a little wary.
