Pallet Forks Offer Increased Versatility for Compact Tractors and Skid Steers
Upon reflection, the ingenuity of ancient civilizations to build massive structures without the equipment that is available today is simply astonishing; one just has to marvel at the designs of the pyramids, open-air theatres, palaces, and the like that were constructed with painstaking amounts of time and labour, often done one piece at a time, over many years.
Imagine what these inventive types of people may have accomplished if they had access to compact tractors, skid steer loaders, and their wide range of attachments. Instead of carrying/transporting and lifting/placing a single block or beam, these ancient engineers could have completed these structures in weeks rather than years with just a few pieces of compact equipment – and some pallet forks.
Pallet forks are handy tools or attachments for performing numerous materials-handling jobs; they allow construction crews to move, lift, and carry bulky or heavy items around their jobsites in a quick and easy fashion, thereby helping them save on time and labour. Pallet forks for machines like compact tractors, front-end loaders, and skid steers can be used in a variety of settings, including but not limited to:
- Construction Sites
- Public Work Projects
There are several types of pallet forks available to support different project needs and weight-bearing requirements; these styles include:
- Standard-duty and heavy-duty pin
- Standard-duty and heavy-duty rail
Some of the more common uses/applications for these pallet fork attachments would be:
- Moving and storing hay bales
- Loading and unloading of freight
- Installing or removing fence posts
- Hauling and moving timber/firewood
- Positioning large/heavy landscape rocks
- Carrying building supplies – lumber, shingles
- Transporting cumbersome brush for lot clearing
- Lifting industrial lawn mowers to clean underneath
Pallet forks are very durable, versatile attachments for compact construction equipment such as skid steers, front-end loaders, and compact tractors; this is reflected by the high demand and activity surrounding used pallet forks on online sites like eBay and Kijiji.
Of course, new pallet forks come with the assurance of high-level performance as well as the knowledge that there will not be any potential issues from lack of care/maintenance. Therefore, companies and contractors looking to add one or more types of pallet forks to their respective operations would be wise to consult with a certified compact equipment distributor such as Tag Equipment in Stouffville, Ontario.
