What else do you do with forks besides lift pallets?

Sanding and painting the bottom of my utility trailer. Flipped it up and held it in place. (I had removed the plywood deck.) IMG_20200430_150527.jpg

I also snapped off high dead branches off some cedar trees that I wanted to drive under. Faster than a ladder and hand saw!

With the extended forks, lifting a pickup bed trailer high enough to work on the lights comfortably. Not shown was the lengths of 1.625" struc tubing that the fork tips rested on for safely working underneath.

Forks are great for loading/unloading the half barrels of rocks that were loaded by hand. Only have to handle the rocks by hand once.

This didn't work, but I think is a cool "Double Forking Action" shot.

I was trying to get air back in my tires after I made the mistake of deflating them so they would fit in my trailer.

Temporary construction bridge (Big enough for two way traffic).

Looks shorter than it is. Used a home made extension a friend gave me.

I use mine to move all kinds of stuff. Sometimes even moving the log splitter the lazy way.

More X-Rated forking action!

Always good for a portable workbench.

Really handy for messing about with fuel.

I have all kinds of buckets, but really they hardly get used, by comparison.

May have already posted this but I use the forks to lift the front end of my Z turn to do deck/blade maintenance.
