    I built a backhoe attachment for the track loader. Then I added forks so I could pick up logs. Works pretty good. My son took a video this afternoon of it in operation.

        I usually just walk behind it, but the logs are wet & heavy so I dropped the engine access door and stood on it for counterweight. The little track loader works great for me. I use it to install signs mainly. Being a walk behind I'm not constantly getting on & off. Very handy. I call it the hydraulic shovel.

          Around here your “forks” are called mechanical thumbs. None the less, fantastic job!
          yeah, I was going to suggest some kind of chain or strap to wrap around him like we use on the lift, so it doesn't buck his butt off!!! That thing has so much power/torque, why can't you put about 200 lbs of weight on it instead?
