    Yep, sure looks like it.

    Guess I could change the pump pulley to increase the flow rate and do it!

    Here is one that could have landed on my head, I didn't level the forks when I raised it.

    Neat idea.

    So this thing is front wheel drive, what happens when you try to put downforce on the arms for diging? Do the front wheels loose traction?

    Yep, the trick is, to keep the bucket tilted down slightly, to pull down as it goes forward.

    I use it with the brush fork, or the 4' boxblade in float, most of the time, so it isn't a problem.

    Someday I will move the loader over to this 4WD unit.

    Another use for the forks. From 4-22-2006

    For trimming our horse riding trails, my wife would set on the cushion bungeed to the top of the fork frame, with her feet on the plywood bolted to the forks. She would use hand loppers to trim away the new growth in the trails.

    The box blade.

    The way it was, 10/20/2005, bolted to the forks.
    -pa201975-jpg -pa201981-jpg

    A few years later I removed the 3 point frame, drilled holes in some angle iron and bolted it to the box blade.

    Can tilt it to use the rippers without moving dirt.
    -p8040060-jpg -p8040062-jpg

    Can use it this way to scrape root balls on trees that have been pushed over.

    Brush fork, didn't take any pictures of it back in June of 2009, when I made it, so I took some now.

    Used 3/4" sucker rod cut to 4' long and some square tubing. Welded the couplers to the bottom of the frame.

    -p8110011-jpg -p8110013-jpg -p8110016-jpg

    Have a set of 2' long rods that I use for moving round pen panels, RR ties and other things.

    Here it is with a little stick on it.

    Adding a cedar tree to the pile that I made with the brush fork.

    13 tons of crusher run.
    -p8290002-jpg

    Had a low muddy place at the shed, put some sandrock in it.
    -p8290003-jpg -p8290005-jpg

    Covering the sandrock, first time, with the 4' box blade.
    -p8290007-jpg -p8290010-jpg -p8290011-jpg

    Second and third pass.
    -p8290014-jpg -p8290019-jpg

    Result, no more mud hole!
