    Got a set of forks for the back of my tractor. Will be using them to move logs, large rounds and pallets of firewood. Plan is to start stacking in three sided pallets then I dont have to handle the splits so often. tractor.jpg

    Is a three-sided pallet a triangle?

    Heck ya, got a rear blade for it from the same seller. Plow the drive with that this year. Shovel is no fun at my house, got a steep drive. Igot it originally for food plots and garden tilling, and plowing. The fork idea came from another hearth member that used pallets.

    I moved a few rounds tonight and it worked well for that, also picked up a pallet and moved it around to see how that worked. It went pretty smooth so looking forward to trying it out. I have at least 5 cord cut and waiting to be split so I will get to work on it soon here.

    Me too!! And I think I may be stroking that off the bucket ;) list soon, finally found a good deal on something worth spending the $$ on. I am starting a cattle operation on the side next year so I need it for lots of different applications but it sure will be handy for wood processing. Waiting for the Deere dealer to get it here is killing me lol
