    Default Re: Carry All

    A plan never works the way you want. The bottom holes on the mount for the 1000lb carryall I bought are too high and I only get 4" of lift which is not enough. So I'm thinking of drilling some new hole so I get more lift. When I lift this pallet I get some deflection and it does not come off the ground on the backside. Before I proceed what do you think this stack of wood weighs? I would not think it would be that much but there is a lot of weight out to the end. Is my plan too much to ask from this carry all? I'm contemplating plan "B" but I like my concept. I used fiber glass engine pallets and they work great.

    It doesn't look like more than a few hundred pounds to me, 500 tops. Can you add chains from the lower rear corners to the upper front corners of the pallet rack? Then you could make a couple short buckles or chains to snap around the front of the rack latching them to the top corners of the carry all. It wouldn't be quite as fast to pick up and drop the pallets, but it would keep the rack from pulling to the rear, and help keep the weight focused to the front of the carryall. Another thing that helps... after backing the carry all into the pallet, shorten the top link as much as you can. That will give you more tilt to the front when you raise it.

    I think I'd shorten up the toplink a bit too.
