Default Tractor with forks that will lift pallets

What size Kubota would I need to lift 2500lb pallets?

A BIG one. I have a 30hp and the FEL is rated at 900 pounds. I've lifted 1000 with it though. But if I put the clamp on forks on it since the load is out front of the FEL I can lift around 800.

If you switch off the bucket and put on jst the forks that will gain you a little bit.
It appears a LA1002 would have a tad over 2500 lift capacity.

Here is a site with the specs you are after:

How high do you need to lift these pallets of rocks? If not high, I'd go with pallet forks that go off the 3-point hitch (something like what's pictured below).

Even then, 2500# is quite a bit. What's the lift capacity of your tractor (or what tractor do you have)?

Hey thanks doc! Sounds expensive... eventually I would like to get a tractor to mow with and do small jobs like working gravel or running augers, maybe some bucket work. When I take delivery or pick up my seed in the spring it's on pallets, last year I hand loaded the bags into the rtv and drove out to the field. Thought it would be nice to just grab the pallet with forks and drive the whole thing out there. I could get a seed tender but that would be another expensive tool I would only use for two weeks a year.

Never seen those before zoom I'll have to check that out thanks! Basically I need to lift seed pallets off of trailers and haul them to the field , however when i need to move said pallets that tractor will be pulling a planter.
It's a allis 7045, (145hp) tractor data said it can lift 6,600 lbs on the 3pt

When you get your seed, does it automatically come with 2500# per pallet?

When I get corn or fertilizer or whatever, when I call to order it, they have no problem with my request to put a certain amount on each pallet. This way, I can size a pallet load for how I want to haul it, unload it and use it. No use having 2000# per pallet when I only want to use 1/2 of that at a time.

They would probably do smaller pallets but as far as planting I try and plant everything at once, weather permitting.

Looks like a M5640mu is a good fit for that loader. Thanks for the link.

I have an MX5100s with quick attach and forks. it will not lift 2000 lbs reliably but just almost will. next is stability issue, with an 1100 round bale on the front i have to be real careful that i don't lift very high because the tractor will tip over. i have ballast in the rear tires and a heavy box blade on the rear.
