Very nice. When you get to it, add some dimensions.

I ended up moving the mounting points to the outside to add stability. They could do with some reinforcement for longevity, but have survived with only minor bending so far. I've also been meaning to put a top link pin bush in the mount for it, but hey, stuff gets in the way

Overall width: 1000mm
T bar: 800mm
Angle braces: 600mm on top edge.

Thanks for all the comments! :)

I’ve been a bit distracted faffing around with splitting my TED20 and doing some cosmetic tidying up but I’ve finally got it all back together and running again. Plenty more tidying up to do but from here on, hopefully it will be more of a “rolling restoration”!

Anyway, I finally got myself a set of pallet forks (option 3 from my original post), not the cheapest but the quality looks good and the manufacturer is not too far away (as opposed to China) so if there are any issues, I can get them resolved. Not carried anything serious yet but just played around with an empty pallet. I am mindful of the limitations of using these with a TE20 but think these will get a lot of use out of these!

He has already used several of his allotted nine lives but when he is not supervising work being done around the place lies in catatonic state on the sofa or my knees! ;)
