    How many with sub-compact tractors have forks?

    I am wondering how many people with sub-compacts have forks and if so what uses you have for them.

    I have them and cannot live without them. If you do not have forks, please let me know why. If you have them, please let me know what you like about them and the uses you have.

    My neighbor is looking at a 2x20 so it has me thinking.

    I have a set I made years ago...today I would buy Chris's if I had 3x20 or smaller machine. I keep stuff on pallets like my snowplow so i can move it around easily.

    Here is the new set up Dad made when we got the 1635. It is a combo of an old 3PT scraper blade frame, and the carrier and forks off an old MF industrial fork lift.





    And here is the first set up we made when we had the 1523. It was a little lighter, as far as the 3PT mount, but worked OK for the 1523. I had to help lift on a few occasions, just because of the length of the forks.




    Uses, hauling literally everything, from bags of corn to the woodshed (as we heat with corn too.) to hauling wood to the woodshed, to hauling the burn barrel out back to empty it,to putting the implements away at the end of each season,(like RFM in the fall, to snowblower in the spring.) , well EVERYTHING!! They are invaluable.
    Thanks,

    Will

    AAAawwwwhhhh, come on guys you're making this difficult. You are going to push me in to getting forks aren't you. The struggle here is, it's another piece of equipment to store and buy. I do use my loader when needed, I just haven't convinced myself I really need it. The problem will be the realization of why I waited so long to get it once I do.

    Here is what we did, keep your eyes peeled, scour areas and scrap piles, and if you can weld, it could come together real cheap. Then you will not feel so guilty.

    Ours sit outside year round. But the forks are off the ground in a skin, and the foot sits on a block.
    Thanks,

    Will

    Here be mine.

    Only have pics of it use with my cage but use it all over place from moving fire wood on a pallet to a temporary work bench.

    Definitely one of my favorite add-ons.

    Nice gear guys. Methinks I'm going to have to fire up the Lincoln over the winter and fab something up. Way too busy to do it this summer....

    I don't have a sub compact but I do have a set of forks. They are very useful to me. I'd recommend pallet forks to everyone. Bought mine off Craig's list for less than half price of a new JD set.

    Don't have a set of forks yet but I hope it is just a matter of time. Right now the problem is funding, as always. Man, the cage setup of Will's would be nice! Especially, when it comes time to harvest the fruit trees.
