    Looks like it's time for you to get a pallet mover for your 3pt. You would be able to pick up more without tires up in air.
    (yup! spending your money again )
    Yes or having my box blade attached to the tractor would help. If I had a trailer hitch receiver built into the box blade, I would rarely need to remove the box blade. I miss not having the BB on the tractor as a counter weight.

    Obed - You could get a ballast box. That would give you a place to keep things like chainsaw and all the accessories that go with it.

    Obed....Thanks for the picture..You make me feel better...I just bought some clamp on pallet forks for my FEL and was cautioned by TBN members to be careful since they could bend my bucket...but looking at what you have done gives me confidence...

    Obed...I have a 2 story house as well. My house also has seamless guttering, which makes it tough to put a ladder against it. I use the fel to access roof. I get in my wife or son drives me close then I step out and step on. The fel also is handy when cleaning out the gutters.

    Bkwoods,
    How does the FEL help you clean out the gutters?

    brin,
    Keep in mind that my forks are a little different than yours. Mine don't clamp on; they are attached to the FEL using a chain that is wrapped around the bucket to distribute the force on the bucket. The clamp on forks put all the force on one small place on the bucket instead of distributing the weight. I have never worried about bending my bucket with my chained on forks. I have found my FEL bucket is much stronger than my FEL's hydraulics.

    Not much to it, I have a set of clamp on forks that I used to move something heavy....it did move it, but after I finished it I noticed the forks were bent....upon further inspection I noticed the bucket had a wee bit of a smiley face on it....

    BTW, place is looking great!
