First off I don't like heights but will do them if I can be safe, the problem I've got is I need to work on the inside of my shop finishing it off and insulating it and change lights later on down the road and have only a skid steer to work with, a telehandler is out of the budget for now. Has anyone been around the work platforms used with a skid steer loader? I need one that lifts about 7 feet higher than a normal platform on a pallet fork, any ideas? I've looked into the forklift attachments that hook onto a skid steer and they make me nervous, real nervous and they don't look safe. Anyone have any experience with them?
A local machine shop recommended a height extension that the platform hooked on top of and elevated it up a given number of feet and use it that way but I can't be the only one to ever need to be slightly higher than their skid steer will lift. The idea of a ladder on the platform isn't going to happen, in this life or the next. I want to be harnessed onto whatever I use in case I would slip or lose my ballance or whatever, I don't want to see any hospitals due to accidents.
Any ideas would be appreciated, or if you have done something that didn't work I'd like to know that as well, I have the largest new holland machine, a 190. Thanks for any replies.
