Thanks for the reply!

My guard may be in the way when I haul pallets of firewood to the woodshed.. Especially when I lift one up so I can sit it on top of another pallet!... I'll have to measure, and probably stack the wood higher than my guard!... My woodshed is 12FT. high in the back, and 14FT. high in the front.

Very nice!!

I've seen a couple guys mount that type of lift on the back of their tractors!

I'm planning to build a ''man lift cage'', and the bottom will be a piece of grate, and have pipe for the rails... All I need is 2 pieces of rectangular tubing 42'' long for the forks to go in.

Thanks for sharing!
