OK, So What Is This Piece Of Equipment?


What is it? What is it for? What does it do?

It had the Case logo on it. I couldn't really see any articulating parts to it.

I've seen an attachment like that for picking up carpet with a fork lift.

That was my first guess when I saw it from a distance, but there's a lot of unnecessary plates for that and the rod isn't long enough to support 10 and 12' rolls of carpet.

Ask Warner, he's probably got an older version of the same thing.

My guess is a spool holder also.
There apears to be a support roller at the bottom, which would help support the wire as it came off the spool. I'm guessing the whole assemply can rotate so as the skid steel could back up as it spools off.

Yep, silt fence attachment. Makes installing silt fence a breeze, kind of expensive too! But I have installed them by hand before, the skid steer version is awesome!
