The scrap yard 1 mile from my house sells surplus steel. I just bought 260 pounds for .20 a pound.
My welding projects just got cheaper.

I bought some extra steel for projects that I have not thought of just yet.

I have SSQA Titan pallet forks and I made debris forks for it.
The titan pallet forks pin on to it.
I made debris forks that attach to my pallet fork frame the same way.

They are pretty beefy.
The bottom back angle is 6" x 4" 3/8" angle. The two outside forks are 3/4" x 2" the inside ones are 3/4" square stakes 36" long.
There are three of them. Two welded side by side the one welded on top of the other two.

I ran out of paint but still tried it out and it worked well so far.

I bought all this steel from a scrap yard this whole thing cost me about $20 to make.
You can buy similar forks for about $250 - $500 They clamp on your bucket.
