As Jon f would say, "got a new toy in the kingdom last week."

I finished the forklift for my 1190 last week. Definitely not for heavy things and no full pallets but it will still move a whole lot more than I can and a lot faster. I'm guessing it might maybe move 1,000 lbs; the 3 pt is the limiting factor there. 90% of its work will be at tailgate height and below loading and unloading stuff in/out of my truck and on/off my deckover gooseneck trailer. Anything higher than that will be super light loads...MAYBE 300 lbs tops.

Looks Nice!!!!
I have 2 3pt forklifts.I have picked some pretty heavy loads by setting the forklift on the ground lifting the load and pulling the tractor out from under it.

Yep! That's next on the agenda. I scrapped out two electric forklifts and saved the whole hydraulic system off both of them. Just have to measure the tilt cylinders and see if one of them will work. If it will, cut the clevis ends off and weld on some top link ball sockets.

Very nice. Sounds like you're being very conservative about your loads.

Yes, it's pretty top heavy and puts a lot of stress on the top link...makes me a little nervous, really don't want to break anything on the tractor or tip it over. And obviously the higher you lift a load the more stress it puts on the top link. And with that tractor having draft control the top link moves a little bit in and out anyway which makes it look worse than it probably is but still, I don't want to take any chances.
