    Pallet Fork Caddy ready to go together!

    Going to town to get the last of the steel for the Pallet Fork Caddy I have been building. Had to wait on the tires getting here today to lay it out or weld up anything. So while waiting I came up with a idea that holds the about 100 lb 4 ft fork in the carrier yet easy to put on or remove and no lifting of the whole fork anymore to put it on. It will have a walking handle to hang onto and a slot for the tip to go into with a pin to lock it on the carrier. Once I get it together I will take pictures and sure someone will run with the design and make more of them. Just not sure why there is not more of them built out there cause the forks are so heavy to carry and put on. I worry about one slipping out of my hands and landing on my foot. When I was younger and had better knees and a good back to work with it was not a problem. So far I found one carrier on the internet after I started to build mine and it is pretty complicated looking and cheap little casters that would not roll on dirt. Here is a picture of it.

    Seems hard to use too?Click image for larger version.

    What kind of forks do you have? I guess I am unfamiliar as I have forks where the fork carrier and forks come off all together in about 2 seconds without having to lift anything.

    In fact if I wanted to take just the forks off the carrier that can also be done without lifting them.

    Below is a video on how the Fork Caddy works. I can see using one of these with a standard fork lift because it cannot articulate the fork frame to detach the tines like the loader on a tractor can.

    Got it Done

    Finished it maybe a change to a Tee Handle if I want to carry 2-48" Forks at a time. Worked real easy to put one and off the Back. My problem I keep the forks in a different place then I can just take them off and leave them there. Now I can go get them to swap out the Hay Spears with.

    To put them both on one on at a time and it was real easy did not have to lift it up to hook it on the Top Rail. I could turn one around on a dime plus I have other uses coming up in my mine. Getting them off is easy if you want to keep working the tractor loader controls and getting in and out then still putting them away.

    I took these pictures as I put 2 forks on the Loader Frame using the Fork Caddy to move and lift/tilt them. Just had to set the Frame about 6 inches off the ground not critical. Then get off the tractor and put them on. Click image for larger version.

    I was actually going to post the same video that Coaltrain did and then noticed he beat me to it. Can you remove your forks in a similar manner that the Artillian forks can be removed? Then just set them on a dolly to get them out of the way?

    You did mention that you had another use for your caddy, so I'm looking forward to seeing what that is?
