    Default Re: 5th Wheel and Mast

    if you are lifting the rear end off of the ground, is the rear door beefed up, or is something done to the non hinge side to support all the weight on the rear of the machine from the cylinder?

    Weld a slide pin on the bottom of the door as well as the side opposite of the hinges.

    Here is a mast that connects with the quick attach where the bucket goes:

    All three links are the same product. The first two are dealers, the last is the manufacturer, but you can see more pictures.

    If you're handy, it's probably cheaper to make your own...

    This is a thought but it sort of cuts out the option for a tail wheel because you would need to use the aux. hydraulics to run the fork lift, there for there is no way to operate a tail wheel.

    I think using a loader with a tail wheel and just arms would be much better then having a mast and no tail wheel.

    One thought with this, and let me say first I like the idea, is you will need a good size bobcat to handle it. It weights 1100# on its own. Alot of beekeeper bobcats I have seen do total, less than 2000#. You add a 4 way double high or triple high and your maxing your machine. Sure you can do it, but at what cost, its not good to max the machine all the time. Hummerbee makes masts, I have heard good things about theirs.

    Mark, Hackenberg told me they make them, or get them "around." Probably from Mendes. I would call Davey up, last time I was there, which was over the summer, they had one sitting there they offered to me when I asked the same question. I dont have a bobcat... yet...
