I finished building "the barn". well sorta finished
Its a regular 8X20. I dug down to to have plenty of clearance and because I needed the dirt somewhere else. I just added fence boards and closed it in on the side so you can't see Shrek from the road when the gates open.How big is that container? Is it one of the 10' tall x 20' or 22" long units? It looks taller than 8' tall when comparing the tractor ROPS height, etc......
What’s goin on here? View attachment 813027
Kinda looks like a Dogloo for chickens. A Cickengloo…
Why do you hate them?I did buy some magnetic mounted mirrors and hate them.
Mansplaining. She will say you dont have to talk to me like a child but then she doesn't do what I instructed her to do proving that maybe I do. But in reality often times its not that she doesn't know what SLOWLY means its that she was incapable of knowing how to make it go slowly.
Me too, exactly 0 lazy people parking out there and less likely to get my expensive car dinged. I have caught two door dingers on camera and held them responsible. its expensive once the paint is chipped, over $900 each time.I always park way out in the lot. Less door dings.
I bought mine used, just one key. redblack key and a red for these tractors.
So does this "poor man"s plow" work better than using the bucket? I have only had one real opportunity to move snow this year, using the bucket and it worked well for me. I told myself I would not buy anything this year, see how it goes and decide what/if I need anything besides the bucket next year.Mine is collecting dust. No snow yet this year. However there is a mysterious talk of 6-9” tomorrow so we will see what the new year brings. I have moved my heavy hitch plow blade from the rear heavy hitch bracket to the FEL. I got the idea from @Tractor Tim where he was showing off his HH landscape rake and had it mounted on the receiver of his fork frame. I don’t have a fork frame but $200 some dollars spent with Titan I got this receiver frame. It’s heavy. And in what seems like typical Titan construction the 2” receiver is a bit wider than it should be but it works. If it snows we will see how she goes. I don’t have a large driveway and it’s flat. Would I love a real plow? Sure but the $$$ is a concern and I don’t have any place to store a plow. This all stores flat View attachment 819526

They can be used to keep the water in the chicken coop from freezing... Dig a hole, fill with manure, put waterer on top of that.... This is assuming a dirt floor in the coop, otherwise a car tire works I am told.I heard of a kid who used to stand in them in the cold weather to warm his cold feet.
That was a touching story, your neighbor is lucky to have you around.Trying to do what I can to help...........
Are you planning on drilling and bolting on those hooks or welding them on? I have a set I bought off amazon and although they do not need to be notched, I need to decide about drilling vs weldingSad story Sully !! That is very difficult for all involved !!
I did some mods to the brackets I bought several months ago . I managed to notch them out so they will straddle the attachment point of the bucket . You'll see in the pic that they don't sit flush , seems like the manufacturer could have done this so we don't have to mess up the powder coat . I will touch up with JD green paint and they will be fine .

My .02 cents ...
I have 14 chickens right now, I have 2 community boxes about 30' wide and they only use one.5 nesting boxes and all 12 chickens used maybe 2 boxes.
Well. I’ll wrap this saga about my Titan forks.
I got the elusive frame and mounted them today… via FedX Ground, overnight amazingly after I queried them about where it was.
Mini review for future searchers.
They look good, fit good. I got the 42 inch long forks. They will adjust to jam up tight together and latch in place in the center unlike some that stop at ten inches. They spread to 48 wide, over all. The frame is green, black forks. There is a 2” receiver but no headache rack or bale spear fittings… my bad, IIRC I changed my mind before pulling the trigger to save weight maybe and ~50 bucks. I’m happy with the product, unused as it is for now. The bottom of the forks are keyed to the frame unlike some commercial forklifts I have used over the years so they don’t pivot up and will apply down pressure to something if needed. You have to slide the forks to a center notch in the frame to remove / install them. It doesn't look like the bottom mounted receiver hitch will be useful for moving trailers around after all unless you remove the forks. Looks like they will likely hit the trailer tongue when turning. We will see.
One thing I noticed is the hook of the Titan QA doesn't curve nearly as far around as the factory loader bucket hook but they are thick steel and I doubt the loader has the power to prize them off. View attachment 830288
