    I entered a contest called the Fisher flicks contest with a product I have created and patented. Please watch my video and let me know what you think. If I get a positive response to my idea, I may research getting it manufactured. Thanks for helping me out. The link to see the video is below. I have been asking some contractors and they think it is a good idea, but they would rather use a tractor or a skid steer. What I tried to tell them is the average person may not own a tractor or skid steer, but a lot of people own snow plows. Not to mention, my idea is a lot cheaper than a tractor and the implements are pretty inexpensive. You can get the forklift for just under $100.

    leave it to a New England mind, lol... it is cool idea but I have a SpeedCast. I've heard about someone making a log splitter for the SpeedCast but your video using a Minute Mount with the landscape rake and box scraper made me think my "yard truck" can be more useful year round.

    Great ideas.

    There is a guy around where I live that had some brand of plow on his landscape truck. He made a platform that he uses during mowing season and he puts his walkbehind on the platform and uses the plow mount to raise the mower off the ground and he transports it to and from jobs like that.

    If Fisher can raise their pressure to their lift cylinder, then you could lift even more weight with the forks and the shovel.

    Again, great ideas.

    Back in the early 90's I drove for Yellow freight trucking and would pickup at a small mfgr in rhode island that made all sorts of top quality rakes, buckets and stuff to use on your existing plow mount.
    sorry, but there's nothing new under the sun.
