Of all the equipment and implements that we sell, the land pride pallet forks are among the best and most useful. It seems however, that a lot of people who are looking at a loader don’t think about them until after a couple years of owning their equipment. We find that typically most guys who are using their Kubota front-end loader to maintain their land use pallet forks more than their bucket. There aren’t many occasions where you run into pallets while you’re working around the property, so how are these people using them so often? Well lets dive in and see!
- Haul/ Move Logs: Since there are no barriers to length with pallet forks, they are perfect for hauling out big logs, and even lifting them high enough off the ground to be able cut.
- Move/ install fence posts: Again with no length barrier, Land Pride pallet forks are perfect for hauling fence posts. Put them on a tractor with a post hole digger in the back and you can make short work of a long fence.
- Clearing Brush: Tree tops can be big and cumbersome to move, with a set of forks you can find the right angle to move them with ease. Did someone mention a bon fire?
- Moving round bales: You need to make sure that you have a big enough tractor, but its easy to get under a round bail with a set of forks.
- Putting up hay: No round bale? No problem! Even if you’re moving square bails around, pallet forks can work perfectly. Whether you’re putting them in a loft or just stacking them tall you’ll be able to lift them wherever you like.
- Roofing Material: Anytime you need “stuff” somewhere high, pallet forks are the way to go. Whether you put them on a pallet or just stack shingles right on the forks, its simple to get them as high as you need.
- Butcher a Deer: For all you hunters out there, pallet forks can be a great tool to lift a dear to properly butcher it. They are also a great tool for moving a carcass.
- Cleaning lawn mower deck/changing blades: With zero turn mowers, its not recommended that you take the deck off to clean. This means that you need to pick up the front end of the mower and get under it. A Pallet fork with a strap can be one of the best ways to go about this.
- Install a basketball goal: Has your son been after you about wanting to be the next Larry Bird? Forks make putting up a basketball goal simple and quick.
- Install a windmill: I think the picture does all the talking here.
As always with pallet forks, and any loader attachment, make sure you have proper ballast, whether that is a round bale on the backend or filled tires, you need to have enough weight on the back to keep from tipping over.
