    Default debris attachment

    Looking for recommendations for forks to turn compost preferably something that will attach to my fel.

    You can attach short bolt on forks and there are places that sell these, but why dont you just use your FEL?

    To turn my compost (18-20 yard pile) I curl the bucket and drag backwards from the top of the pile spreading it out about 25' long then I use the FEL to scoop the left and right sides into the center and then scoop up the stuff I backdragged into the pile again.

    The other aspect is turning or not. Cornell U and others say turnng is not really necessary once its well mixed so I turn mine 2 times in the fall after leaf collection and then 2-3 times in the summer before I spread it.

    IF you are in continously adding to the pile make a longer pile and blend new material into one end then use material from the opposite end works too.

    How about brush forks. Here is just one example.

    If you weld these seem easy enough to fab together for a lot less than they cost online.

    You may find a tooth bar is all you need. Lots of discussions on this subject on the board.
