I only just recently aquired my 1025r, and so my collection of implements remains rather limited. I would, however like to get a pallet rack so I can start organizing my barn's lean-to storage space. The space is around 10ft x 25ft, and I'd like to put the pallet racks against a portion of the long wall. I don't want the racks to protrude more than is necessary, but at the same time, don't want to regret going with something too narrow. I was thinking 8ft high and 8-10ft wide, but I'm undecided on the depth. 36? 42? 48?

I haven't even really dialed in my wishlist of implements either. But a box blade, stump bucket, and forks are fairly high on the list.... maaay end up replacing my brush hog with a flail mower someday?

Anyone have any advice from experience? Regrets about not getting deeper racks, etc?

If you dont really know what all you will storing, go with the 48-inch depth. You will not regret it.

Something to keep in mind - a standard shipping pallet is 40" wide x 48" deep.

I setup 42" deep racks in my garage. I kept a 6" space between the back of the racks and the wall. A Standard plastic shipping pallet rests on the cross beams rather nicely and I don't bump the back wall.

IMO, if you go with a 48" depth you need the decking to go with it.

True, but you can use a full sheet of plywood.

I have 42”, some is decked, but it’s nice.


I wouldn’t go 36, to much overhang, and less stability.

why redesign the wheel?? buy some pallet racking. With the current price of lumber it would probably be a wash. And steel designed for pallets.
Unless I misread something, the OP does intend to purchase pallet racks, it's just a matter of what depth.

I have 42” but would certainly like 48” and would not go to 36”.

I have found it is very hard to find 48‘s that are used, never see 36’s but 42 is very common.

I'm picking up some used 44" depth by 11' high pallet racking. 36" would not be deep enough for anything stored on a pallet. I would suggest 42 at a minimum and deeper if you have the room.
