    Default made some new brush forks

    I emailed Bro-tek to get a price on their brush forks to find out they don't make them anymore. So I decided to take things into my own hands and make my own. I'll post some better pics tomorrow after I get them painted.

    You missed a spot. It turned out nice.

    I have a set that someone made using 1" cold rolled steel for tines. They are only about 20" long and not quite strong enough as I always seem to be finding rocks under the brush.......

    The brush forks look good. I am making a set out of 1.5x3" rectangular tubing. I have it all cut but have not had time to weld it. It will hang from my bucket lip and be secured beneath the bucket. I have a set of heavy duty forks for heavy duty work but the brush keeps falling between the tines so the brush forks will solve that problem. Both sets will work with a grapple that I will build later.

    Give us an update when you get to try it out.

    That is a nice looking set of forks.

    Like ETpilot we had problems with the short stuff falling between the two tines of our chain on forks so we bought the second set. Hope to test the set-up with four tines soon.

    Finally got to thy them out today. They work absolutely awesome. I had a huge pile of brush including 3-4 20ft long trees and a pine stump that was 12" around and about 5 ft long. It picked up the hole pile in two trips! It is unbelievably strong! I even picked up a huge rock that was about 20" around and bounced it up and down on the tips of the times and it took it just fine! Anyway, I snapped a few shots for you guys to check out:
