ive got the formost, but am in the same situation. if i ever get time i'm certain i can buy coupler, 2 wheel hubs with stub axles, 2 tires with wheels and build rest for 1/4 the price.

 

until then, i either move with tractor or move cows to where it is

An option https://www.agrisupp...-frame/p/22029/

If you have a set of good pallet forks you can move it that way.

Definitely can build one cheaper just have to figure our what i want to use for the frame, and get the time. we have been moving with the tractor also but picking it up by chain is a pain.

Wish we had good pallet forks and a quick attach, That is the next purchase on the list when funds allow.

If the quick attach is the next purchase, why not spend the money there rather than wheels and a frame?

Keep looking around. I found one almost new, factory made for $100. Owner did not know what it was. Had to adapt the way it hooked up to our chute. Nothing to one really and would have been simple enough to make if you had one to pattern by..

We want a quick attach but wife (boss) says we don’t need it that much now the squeeze chute is priority. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I keep looking around Craigslist and such but nothing so far so probably gonna build.

You do know there are 3 point pallet forks on the market? They are rather reasonably priced new and I'm sure can be had for almost nothing used because they are not popular.
