I tried searching this and came up empty, but I know I have seen photos on here (just cant remember where) of guys that
had built some sort of devise out of wood with caster wheels so when they drop their forks they can move them,
so I'm looking for photos of that nature so I can somewhat copy it, I have the Frontier AP10F forks on order and was looking for something to do this weekend!
THANKS for any help on this!
Just to be clear, dropping the whole setup, not just the forks.

I made a low profile dual-purpose dolly for my shop. The forks slide underneath the loader and can go in the other way too.

Before installing fasteners and a look without attachments sitting on it.

You can find plans here for a dolly that stores both my snowblower and pallet fork assembly. The dolly is designed so that either implement can be removed without affecting the stability with only the other implement present. These are great for conserving storage space.

Another great idea to save space!

Exactly what I was looking for!
Artillian has one. I don't have one so I can't tell you anything about it. Fork-n-Bucket Cart - Artillian
Thanks, but I'm going stick to making it out of all the lumber I have laying around so I just have to invest in the caster wheels.
The wife is already shaking her head on the price tag of this tractor and goodies!😳

I put all my implements on dollies. Forks are easily tucked under any of them, and can be used to move the loaded dollies too. Ignore the orange tractor and several implements -- they are now replaced with green ones after I sold my smaller Kubota and several implements. Most casters are from Harbor Freight, 5 inches I recall.

I look at most everything from the perspective of whether I can cannibalize the wheels of an $8 HF dolly and store it somehow.

I have the mentioned Fork-n-Bucket Cart, and love it. It is a bit spendy, but worth it for me. I can put the forks in on one side, and the bucket from the other side, and just spin the cart around and makes it trivial to connect either one as needed. The only bummer with using my Frontier AF10 forks is I have to widen the forks out a little to fit into the cart.
