Purchase The Perfect Forks For Your Tractor Bucket

Turn Your Tractor's Bucket Into A Forklift

Did you know that you can easily and safely transport palletized material with your tractor bucket? It’s like having a small forklift always at your disposal around the farm or job site! That’s part of the reason why our many fork options that will fit directly onto your tractor bucket continue to be one of our best selling products.

Being able to keep your bucket attached to your tractor, but still be able to use pallet forks is a great time saver. With our forks that fit directly onto your tractor bucket, you don’t have to worry about dropping your tractor’s bucket and picking up your pallet fork frame. Why add complexity to such a simple problem?

Better yet, with some of our fork options for your tractor bucket, you don’t even have to get out of the cab of the tractor to safely attach/detach the forks to your bucket. With the right set of forks for your tractor bucket, you’ll be saving time and effort every time you need to move material!

Over The Bucket Forks For Your Tractor Bucket

Over The Bucket Forks For Tractors

Over The Bucket Forks (aka “Hook Over Bucket Forks”) are by far the most popular option of forks to add to your tractor bucket. Not only are they the highest build quality, they also are the easiest for the tractor operator to put on and take off the bucket.

These forks will come with either 3 or 4 weld on brackets for the top of your tractor bucket (depending on size/brand ordered). These brackets are cut on the CNC machine, and their design is what makes the Over The Bucket Forks so easy to use.

The hook shape of these brackets allow for the steel shaft that supports the forks to be “rolled” onto or off of the bucket allowing the forks to be picked up or dropped off the tractor bucket without outside help.

The forks are made from one piece of forged steel without any gussets in the heel. This creates a strong safe fork with identical build quality to most forklift forks. The steel shaft that supports the forks is 2” of solid steel, and comes in lengths of either 72” or 80” (call us for custom lengths). All of our over the bucket forks are built in America.

“Clamp On Forks” For Your Tractor Bucket

Clamp On Bucket Forks

Additionally, some customers will prefer a smaller or cheaper option for their tractor bucket forks. This is where our “Clamp On Bucket Forks” would be a good option to consider.

Ranging in price from about $800 to $1300, Clamp on Bucket Forks offer an affordable option for those customers who will only be performing light duty lifting from time to time.

Having to manually attach/detach the forks, along with the additional moving parts when compared to over the bucket forks makes clamp on forks slightly less appealing for some customers.

Caution should be used when purchasing clamp on bucket forks for your tractor as there are many low quality versions available on the market. We direct all of our customers to our line of Clamp on Bucket Forks from Haugen Industries, built right in the USA.
