PorcupineI have these:
This 46-inch Pallet Fork Frame Attachment by Titan Attachments is equipped with a pair of 36-inch fork blades and is designed to connect your skid steer or tractor equipped with the SSQA or Universal Skid Steer Style Quick Tach System.www.palletforks.com
If someone would have told me up front they’d be my most used attachment I’d have laughed at them.
I’m not laughing any more. l’ve moved pallets, equipment, cattle panels, gates, various materials etc.
In fact I use them for moving round bales more often that I use my hay spear. I only use the spear when unloading a trailer of rounds anymore.
i wouldn’t skimp on forks, you’ll likely use them more than you think.
ETA-I forgot pushing over trees. They’re great for that too.
we are going to have to start using round bales because squares are getting crazy expensive this year. Won’t be free grazing them but putting in hay bags to control amounts. Brings me to my question, you use your forks to move the bales. I don’t have a bale spear but do have forks. Are you hauling/lifting from underneath or spearing with the forks? I can buy forks but if I can save ~$500 that would buy a lot of hay. Our hay guy has 4x5 bales and that should be well within my 2501’s fel lift range.
