All Purpose Log Fork
"In 1981 I was cutting timber for a new barn and needed something to handle logs. We owned a New Holland skid steer loader so I tried to buy an attachment. I found that all attachments available were either too costly or poorly designed," says Donald Israel, Shell Lake, Wis.
"I decided to build what I needed and went to our scrap pile to find two old plow beams and some V-channel and angle iron. In one day's time I had welded together what I wanted for just the cost of welding rod.
"The fork mounts on a rectangular frame that supports two curved supports that cradle logs, round bales, fenceposts, machinery, and other items we haul. Works great. For high lift jobs, like placing rafters hay conveyors and so forth, I welded a short piece of chain to a steel pipe that I slip over one prong of the fork to reach straight into the air about 16 ft."
