seeing how versatile the brutus is i won't be surprised if a lot of american cities and towns buy these up for their crews. this has me wondering what fleet pricing will be like.

the snow blower, snow blade, pallet forks and maybe the mower would be useful around the farm.

I mean I have a standalone snow blower and i have a blade on my truck. I also have a deer that I'm using right now to cut the grass but depending on how pricey these attachments are I might sell the deer and snow blower to fund the accessories.

I have a feeling we are going to spend most of our money on these attachments. :(
We are, they're not cheap but they're a worth while investment. One member is paying just over $24k out the door for his brutus and the attachments he wants.

You could always wait for aftermarket accessories which might be a bit cheaper. They haven't even released pricing for these attachments yet have they?

how high can the pallet forks go?
we stack pallets quite high, high enough to fit into trucks and sometimes for storage in a warehouse and need the forks to go high enough.

I think you're going to need a fork lift... look at this picture



Brutus with pallet forks, they look to only be capable of lifting from the ground to a limited height, the brutus seems to be better suited to transport pallets around property than it is to stack and organize.

that only means you have to stack whatever on top of the pallet yourself and just use the brutus to move it.
Not in a warehouse environment your not.. the Brutus cant even lift a pallet up 5 ft how do you expect that to work in a warehouse. even stacking them by hand is a foolish suggestion, especially if they're loaded with stuff. what are you going to do climb it up to the shelves on a ladder?

The brutus is good for transporting pallets but not organizing.

+1

Its just meant for moving the pallets around if they are already on the ground.

Can't bring them any higher.

Yeah it seems like stacking pallets can only be done if it's just a few.
It's more for move loaded pallets.

Especially for the cost of that attachment, it doesn't seem worth it. If you didn't have to stack pallets than it would be acceptable, but as you can see the Brutus will only lift the pallets about two feet off the ground.

You could look to see if other UTVs have a better fork lift attachment that gives you the ability to stack as well as move pallets.

It's weird how they could make a forklift attachment lift pallets higher. Was there something in the way of clearance or maybe this is one of the attachment just to transport pallets one at a time and the other stackable lift is in the works...
