    Our FEL can lift 850-1,450 lbs depending on height required and distance in front of pins.

    But the “Breakout Force” - basically the power of the curl cylinders - is much higher, between 2,000 and 3,000 lbs. It’s what you use to get unstuck....

    We usually use forklift tines to move rocks. Put them close together, use the fel and tractor to push the times under it, and curl. With practice you can position them on a wall. For planning purposes, granite is around 160 lbs/ cu ft.

    too big to get in the yard or out to where i want to deposit the rocks, too heavy, guessing i can't rent one and would probably make more of a mess than it's worth without a good operator
