    Way to attach pallet to Artillian pallet forks to allow the pallet to be dumped?

    Hi all, I'm considering building a light wooden frame/walls around a wooden pallet to use as a deep light weight materials bucket for seaweed. This will fit a lot more material than my 53 inch bucket can which is usually heaped high and many times I lose some material. thinking of having a removable front wall on the gate for dumping after it's full.

    It will be filled to the top, and then dumped, and then refilled again. Ideally I'd like to keep the high walled pallet attached to the forks for most of the operation, with capability to remove it if needed.

    I plan on lifting it with my 42 inch artillian pallet forks

    Has anyone ever seen a device or improvised some way to keep the pallet from falling off the forks when you put the forks into the "dump" position? Some kind of stop/retainer?

    Nylon tie down strap? Run it through the pallet and through the frame?

    Or bolt a couple pieces of short chain to the sides of the pallet - then hook the chain into the slotted chain hooks on the side of the Artillian frame. That is what those slots are for.

    I hook a tie-down between the pallet and the bottom of the fork frame.

    I just got done building a dump box just like you were talking about so i hope this helps you out. My wooden box is a little on the big side (8'x4' weighing in around 350 pounds) but i needed that amount of room for when i pick up sticks and the ability to throw my chippings into the box from the chipper. I also wanted a system for it to fold down so it would not take up much room. This dump box is not meant to hold a lot of weight but meant to hold a lot of lightweight items like sticks, leaves, wood chippings, ect. I built this entire dump box for around $350.00. You can go cheaper by not painting it or adding a plexiglass window or dollies. You can make it any size you wish but here are all the parts needed (assuming you already have the pallet forks).
    Material list:
    3/4" 8'x4' plywood, need 4
    2x4, need 6
    4" door hinges with removable pins, need 10
    30" piano hing, need 3
    cam buckle tie down, need 2
    ratchet straps, need 2
    24"x18" 1/4" thick plexi- optional window
    3" swivel caster, need 4, optional for building dollies
    Box of deck screws
    Wood glue

    Finished box

    Ratchet strap around the pallet fork frame and through a D-ring bolted to each side of the dump box works for me.
