Terramite Bucket Forks
After looking at several online suppliers for clamp on bucket forks, I came across Yankee Workshop. They make several options including both clamp on and chain on bucket forks. I chose the chain on variety in the hopes of distributing the lifting forces across more of the bucket structure. While researching the company, I noticed that they are actually made about 45 minutes from my home. After calling the company, I made arrangements to stop and pick up the forks personally. The company consists of a father and son team that weld the components themselves. I was impressed by the fact that he said they make every attempt to use North American steel for the bars. A quick look found a USA stamp on one of the forks.
The forks are 48" long and include a socket for installing a 2x4 upright to prevent kickback. They are made of 2" square tubing with about a 3/16" wall thickness.
Overall, they installed easily and are more than strong enough for the capabilities of most front end loaders. I used them around my property to move some felled trees and limb piles. I don't know why I didn't get these things sooner! So much easier. And the compact size makes them easy to store.
In short, a quality product made by good people at a reasonable price from domestic components. What's not to like?

Re: Terramite Bucket Forksd
I had a chain on set years ago on a MF 255 to move round bales. They worked well, don't know who made them but I like that design.
