Best Way to Move Pallete's from Front of House to Backyard


Or you could buy an old tractor with a loader and fork attachment.

This one is way over priced, but if you watch CL you can sometimes find them for under four grand.

Just went back and read both Scuba Daves and Yoyizits post, most likely the tractor idea would not work, most of the smaller tractors have a lift capacity of about 1200 pounds; a skid loader may do it if you rent a big enough one, make sure you tell the rental company what you expect it to do.

lol, The funny thing is I paid 550 for delivery and was told that included unloading them off the truck. Never thinking that mean't right on the front of the house.

Thanks for the picture of the attachment! I am going to call up the rental spot tomorrow see what they charge. Really aggravating to have to spend extra dough on moving everything to the back.

Oh, and a Bobcat is a name brand of a skid steer loader and there are forks available for use with them. You will want to have an approx weight of the pallet of pavers. The skids do have their limitations.
So. Is it either kids or skids that you'll rely upon to do the job. Poetry and puns are/is one topic we haven't discussed here, yet (And maybe English Grammar, too.) (No matter what) Don't drink and drive, ever!!!

On a serious note; If you paid $500.00 above the price of the material, for delivery, you haven't gotten your money's worth. I sort of get the feeling that you were shortchanged. The fact that the truck driver couldn't do what you paid for is irrelevant. You should call the store and speak to the manager or owner. This is a consumer satisfaction issue.

Lets leave grammar alone, I will have to look for another forum to frequent.

Nope, not serious; the laughing smiley is mine, yours is the whistling smiley.

Edit: I also admit to a grammatical error or ten (thousand) or so.

I paid $150 for delivery to the back yard & I didn't like that
But the pavers were already less then 1/2 of what other places were selling them for

Now I just need to figure out why they have efflorescence (leave Gramma outta this) after a year when they said it would go away

Because there's a certain percentage of glass mixed in with the gravel. OMG Glass. That's crushed and ground glass. I've seen it here in the big city. Some sections of the road are so lit up that it looks like a dome of a sports stadium. Really looks eerie!!!
