    Been seeing a lot of nurseries these days using tractors with forks mounted to the back of the 3 pt hitch. Looks like a great idea. Was just wondering if anyone has experiences with these?<p>It looks like it could make the tractor must more versatile. Front forks, unless you have a big machine, can't move much wait. I was wondering if you could move pallets of sod with these, or even pavers for that matter. Would be great because you wouldn't need a skid steer then. <p>Just curious, so I'd figure I'd ask.

    Steve, check out the lift at rear links most tractor have 3000 lbs of lift there , you must have some weight up front too to balance out the load. most tractor with the rear forks have a loader and front counter weight<p>----------<br>paul<br>
