I would be tempted to find some 3x3x1/4 angle and use two pieces with the legs going away from the pins. You could even add braces from one leg to another to prevent them from spreading under load. Much easier to find angle in that size than channel.

that's the best answer I've heard.
That is the way I built the brush fork frame many years ago:

With a little extra rollback built in:

And chain slots:

It can haul a lot of brush:
