Steel Forks Bolted To Back Of Backhoe Bucket
I bolted a pair of steel forks on back of my backhoe bucket so I can lift a garden wagon loaded with bundles of roof shingles up to the roof, where workers can unload them without having to stoop over. I used 4-in. channel iron to make the forks and drilled holes in the bucket to bolt them on. To load the wagon, I tilt the bucket down until the forks are parallel to the ground. A nylon tie-down belt is used to secure the wagon to the forks. (William Russell, Union, Wash. 98592)
