..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 :banghead:

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? :dunno:

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.

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.

Yeah I could use my truck to pull it across the ground a bit. I just need to move it a few feet. Got busy when the guy was delivering and he plopped it right in front of my garage door exactly where i told him not to put it and i didn't notice until he was gone. In fact, I think I will just give them a call and ask them to come move it. I explicitly told him not to put it there.....

Thanks for all the replies - about what I figured, but it's always good to "ask the audience". :)

You’re right, let me add, sit and watch with a cold brew

so i'm assuming u have a pellet stove-duh:lol: do u let the whole skid sit outside thru the wintertime-or u cover it(skid)with a tarp??
we would split the skid into 3--and then move them into my big garage, and when we ran close to being out in the basement, just hop onto 2520-and bring another skid of bags down to basement---had to hand unload the bags to inside of basement-and restack them beside the stove--but everything stayed nice and dry.

just the audience wondering is all:laugh::munch:

yep split the load (at least) or if you have a carry-all you could throw some on the back for ballast and you might get closer to getting it in one trip! I used to load up my old 2210 with a stack of mulch on a carry-all

5x10x3 piece of asphalt.... I am cheating because it’s behind the bucket, carried it about 300ft. Rough calculations are about 1800lbs.
So you are saying that with roughly 2000 lbs of weight on the loader (asphalt + bucket weight) and only a box blade for ballast that you were able to lift the load off the ground AND your rear tires stayed on the ground?

When my brother and I were milking, we would unload 8 tons of bagged minerals for the milk cows by hand, one bag at a time. We would grind our own feed and we would go thru the 8 tons every two months. So, 1 ton of pellets isn’t a whole lot to move by hand. Good exercise, even if it takes you a couple of sessions.

I burn 4 tons of pellets every winter and I take them off of the pallets and stack them in my garage - which as another person pointed out is good exercise. But I have the @%^#[email protected]^ flu and the dude put them down in front of my car so I cannot leave the house unless i moved them, and I am freaking sick. I had a hard time driving the tractor across the yard without getting wiped out.

They came out this morning and moved them for me. I felt bad asking them to do it, but i told the guy not to put them there......

Thanks for all the advice and good humor. :)

Can you lift it enough to slide a few pieces of black pipe under the skid? Then roll the skid, moving the pieces of black pipe as you go. I've seen machinery movers / riggers use this technique on more than one occasion?
