    Took a 200 lb+ desk out a 2nd storey door last night. (stairs aren't in yet). Set the forks in the door frame and slid the desk out.

    Dont know if it was strange, but I used my hay fork on my JD 4430 to lift some 28' steel pipe rafters into place as I was building my barn. To get the height I needed I slipped a 10' piece of pipe over one side of the hay fork. To the pipe I welded two anchor points at the far end for a chain, one to attach the load and one to the top of the hay fork frame to take some of the load off the fork. The high point of each rafter was 15' above ground. Each rafter weighs about 350 lbs.

    Building a roller. Body is 3/8" thick steel pipe 18" in diameter by 6' long. Weight is around 550#. It had to be stood on end to mark it square for cutting. Then laid back down for the cutting.

    I use the tractor to shuffle my hog traps around. I guess they weigh around 250 pounds or so...

    Put a deer where that hog was a few posts back and that's the strangest thing I do with it every year. When my daughter was two, she asked why the deer was chasing the tractor. An odd way to chase a tractor I thought, but I just said the deer really likes the tractor.

    Last winter the the kid across the road got his dad's 3/4 ton Chevy pickup high centered on a rock next to his driveway and I picked up the pickup truck with my forks (on the 105) and got it off the rock. I was surprised that I didn't damage anything underneath but Chevy's are tough....I guess.
    A couple Kubota's and some payment books.....

    I could not find the old thread on gun racks, so here is my axe-holder. It's
    a couple of rings cut from 3" sched 40 steel pipe, painted orange, and
    bolted to the FEL cross bar. Padded with foam inside.

    This 2500-gal PEX water tank is my biggest loader load. I carried it
    almost a quarter mile, very slowly. Only about 600# or so, but bulky.

    Did you drive backwards so you could see where you were going, or were you able to use the road's edge as a guide, or did you have a spotter?

    Yeah fwd visibility was not the best....I watched the edge of my
    private road and went really slow. Forward. I figured if someone came up
    the road, they would see me and have to back down the hill.
