Default Front end loader forks?

Has anyone made a set of forks for their front end loaders? I think it'd be handier than a shirt pocket to have a set of pallet forks for a loader on a garden tractor. I actually just picked up a bunch of steel to build a set for my Johnson on the 782, but that'll be a different thread. Anyone here have forks?

Not on a garden tractor but have a set for the skid steer and probably use them as much as we do the bucket.

I have a Vevor set of forks for my Danco 2000. There OK but you cant lift much weight. Would be great for brush though.

Yup!
Got you covered!

Les built this set for our DanCo RD200/149 rig.
Don't know what we would do without it.
Really comes in handy for just about everything.

below is a set he built for his BIL's green thing

That's quite a set of forks, finsruskw! I can see that being very handy for a variety of chores.

Are the spears available from a supplier or homemade?

May be available, but I do not know where.
Les bought some remaining stock from a supplier that was getting rid of them for lack of the tapered spools needed to mount them.
I had to make the spools from scratch to match the custom lower mast frame he was building to hold them.

A very cool innovation. I'm going to be keeping my eyes open for some suitable substitutes.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
