    How many plates can your machine move at once? That's an important jumping off point. I would just throw it on a truck, hauling around a specific attachment will get old quick unless that's all this machine does.

    Hook a corner of the plate under the carriage of the forks and roll on. I've moved hundreds of road plate this way. The center lifting lugs are the best though, they pick nice and level. If you go that route, tie a tagline back to the machine to keep it from spinning/swinging.
