Material Handling Fork
You can put the fork on, or take it off, in a matter of seconds simply by pulling two pins. The fork's teeth (36 in. long and spaced about 10 to 12 in. apart, depending on bucket width) are made of 2 in. tubular steel with 1/4 in. thick sidewalls. The teeth, secured by bolts, are easily removed and replaced if bent or broken.
The bottom edge of the bucket slips into an angle iron "lip" bolted to the fork assembly. This lip, plus the two removeable pins, lock the fork flat onto the bottom of the bucket.
Standard heavy duty fork assemblies are available to fit most buckets from 3 to 8 ft. wide. A 6 ft. wide fork sells for $329. Initial installation requires drilling two holes in the bucket, one on each side, for the removable pins.
