Most forklifts I've been around would have gotten stuck on an ice cream cone. YMMV. It may be awsum....time will tell.
Run it over to Seattle and try 'er out
On the other hand if it doesn't work as expected you can drop it off at my shop and leave it

If he puts some weight on the forks he might be ok as long as it's not too icy.
Norm the forks go into what looks like a rectangular tube, then if you notice the two bolts in those tubes will go through a hole in the end of the fork. The forks likely bottom out against the blade but you need the bolts so the blade doesn't pull off when you back up and forget to raise it.

Thanks for all the comments. I have attatched some better pics withe some mods to it.
In responce to: nfinch86 - 1. I have welded chain to the sleeves
2. The blade was an old damaged reservoir from a locomotive
3. Britich Columbia Canada (Best place on earth, especially if you like to pay taxes)
Metalmltr - The plow is at the end of the forks so I can pick up a pallet with some brake shoe's or something on it for wieght.
CWagner- The bolts do not go through the forks. The other two holes in the sleeve are to turn the blade, if you want to puch the snow to the left you put a pin in the hole on the right and the fork on that side can only go that far. Blade turns.
Bretsk2500 - I put in bigger bolts so it doesn't lead forward to far anymore. I only had a 1 1/8" drill that was sharp enough to do all the holes. I will add a blade or edge strip, don't want any injuries.
I wish I had pictures of our first forklift. It came with a bucket, a blade, two sets of forks. She was a real cream puff! The blade had a steel box built behind it on the forks with 1000# of weight in it. It would push snow, gravel (if you took small bites) and do a good job. Of course it was new in the early 1960's and only lifted 4000#. Your blade looks to me to be a bit far away from the fork mast. This will make it very sensitive to tipping the mast. Can be a bit of a surprise hitting a frozen lump with the mast tipped back too much!
Good looking blade all the same.
