We were recently approached by a customer asking if we could provide a Polaris Sportsman quad with pallet forks enabling them to move clay pigeon traps across rough terrain with ease.
The design brief was simple – the customer was using a large JCB to move relatively small pallets with a clay pigeon trap affixed to them across rough terrain. They wanted to carry out this task using a quad – firstly to reduce the high running costs associated with the JCB and secondly to minimise the impact on the land – the much lighter quad is able to glide over soft ground without leaving unsightly and inconvenient ruts.
We were able to manufacture pallet forks to fit a Polaris Sportsman that included a safety catch – once the forks are raised a safety lever needs to be activated to lower them. This not only prevents the forks digging into the ground at speed should the winch rope fail but also allows the forks to be stowed securely in the up position freeing the winch to be used for other tasks.
Not only are these pallet forks allowing the shoot to save money by no longer requiring the large JCB, they were also provided at relatively little cost and 0% finance! We can also offer 5% discount to NFU members.
