    Pallet of Pellets

    ..Say that 3 times fast....


    Curious if anyone has ever successfully picked up a 1 ton pallet of pellets with a 1025r.

    I know it is above the rated capacity - by roughly 2x.

    I need to just barely get it off the ground so I can pull it backwards. Darned delivery driver put it in the wrong place. I can push it, but that does not help me. When I push it the rear wheels of the 1025R are off the ground.

    So before I go put on a boatload of ballast - anyone ever done it successfully, or will i just be

    Thank.

    My vote is no, but I’d love to watch and honestly wish you could. But the unfortunate truth is not a chance with a 1 series.

    You won’t be able to budge it. Even on a 3 series that is too much.

    Maybe you tilt it up enough to get a piece of plywood under it and then pull the plywood with a brush grubber?

    My 4044M has a hard time lifting a ton of salt on a pallet out of a Pickup!! It can lift it enough to drive the truck away then I have to let it down. No way is your tractor going to budge it. We took a few 50 lb sacks off then I could move it into my Daughters shop. Figure the fork set up is close to 450 lbs and it sits out past the pivot a bunch. IF it was right at the pivot and I used chains no problem at all lifting a ton up.
    Specs on mine;
    Lift capacity at full height
    Measured at pivot (U)

    Not much to see. Just the loader arms not moving and a lot of groaning from the relief valve. :-)

    I get pellets delivered every fall (should have mine in a week or two!) and I can lift a 1 ton pallet of pellets about half an inch off the ground with my 2032R but even then, the machine is very unstable. Even with a full ballast box and loaded rear tires, the back end is so light that if I shift my weight it'd probably lift the rear tires off the ground.

    Get yourself a spare pallet and split the ton down to a manageable size.
