How To Rotate Leeds From A Loader Bucket
Gary Oberg, Arlington, Wash: “Most forklifts have a hole burned into the end of one or both forks for lifting with a chain. That works okay, but if the lifted item needs to be rotated it can be a problem.

Weld one end of a short length of chain onto it and weld a 1/2 grade 5 or grade 8 bolt to the chain’s other end.
