I'd like to be able to use my Artillian pallet forks on the 3pt of my 1025r. I know I can just buy a carryall and accomplish the same thing but would like to use my new welder and make an attachment that would mount up to the quick hitch and then to the Artillian fork frame. I've looked on the ol interweb quite a bit and just haven't seen anything. Has anyone done this and if so would you share some pics??

....and yes...this is really just an excuse to use the new welder, but I think it would come in handy when I have the bucket on the front loader.

Someone else recently posted about trying to mount JDQA forks on the 3PH. It can be done. One suggestion was to purchase a cheapo Quick Hitch and weld the appropriate JDQA hardware to it.

But... Before I had a loader I had purchased a set of nice forks specifically designed for the 3PH. I can tell you that without a hydraulic top-link they were almost worthless. Also, since the 3PH doesn't lift very high (and this was on a mid-sized 2720) I couldn't even raise them high enough to offload a pallet from my small landscape trailer. The Cat-1 Limited 3PH on the 1-series would probably have even more restrictions.

I don't want to discourage you from embarking on a project with the new welder but I hate to see you waste the material. Especially since it takes all of 60-seconds to swap from the bucket to forks. :)

How about building a nice fork dolly with casters?

HHMMMM....good points. I'm new to this stuff and hadn't considered that I'd have difficulty without the hydraulic top link. I'll have to come up with another project! Maybe a fork dolly like you said.

I appreciate it --thank you!

I have also scoured the Interwebs to find a pre-made mounting plate to allow you use a JDQA implement (forks, blade, bucket, etc.) on the 3PH and came up with nothing. If you find something, post it up.

If you make one.... then MAKE TWO! :laugh:


In my case, I want to mount my treepuller on the 3PH. It would give me a lot more lifting/pulling power than the FEL allows for.

I can think of several uses for it...essentially a carryall without the floor but a pallet would work. It wouldn't have a upright back on it but I don't need that. I could pick up a partial pallet of mulch bags while loading more in the bucket....it would lift logs, brush, etc. But I can do that with the forks on the front. I'll have to give it more thought...

Put me on the list also, was trying to move a pallet of concrete blocks the other day and the loader could barely lift them, I'm sure the 3pt wouldn't have had any problems. I do have hydraulic top and side links so a rear pallet fork could come in handy for those loads that don't need to be lifted very high.

Just make your own carry all then :thumbup1gif:

I was going to build my own but after seeing how cheap a carry all is. I just bought one instead. I haven’t had time but I will build different things out of wood for the carry all. Basically pallets That I can just back up and grab with the carry all. Right now I only have a pallet with my 25 gallon spot sprayer on. I’ll make new ones and ones with backs also when I need them.

The 1025 is severely limited 3ph height. most of my land is flat. When I get around the pond i have to be careful because a slight incline will grab the pallet. So keep that in mind.
