    Tractor 3 point Hydraulic Forklift attachment

    I purchased a walkie style forklift for $100 that needed batteries. I removed the mast and welded a 3 point attachment to the mast. I hooked up the hydraulics to the remote hydraulics on the tractor.

    This is extremely useful! As pictured here, I am moving water to cows. My 3 point is rated for 2,000 pounds and I have a heavy dozer blade on the front for counterweight.

    I use this for loading and unloading pallets of materials like bricks, concrete, steel. I use it to move round bales of hay. It pretty much gets used for all the heavy lifting around the farm.

    I have a sweet multitool attachment but have not had time to get a video of all the components. Most of the items are stuff that is seen everyday but one of the components is a unique idea that every farmer that replaces fencing will want.
