Bit the bullet today (so to speak). Got the tractor out and cleared snow from the side of where the pallet forks are stored since there is no way I could get to them the "right" direction. I was able to lift the forks with a chain on the hook on the bucket and carry them over to the parking area and set them down. Then I had to move snow away from the 1 remaining full rack on the lawn and the ground in front of the porch. Swapped the bucket for the forks, moved the empty rack out and the full rack in. Took a couple of hours but it's done.

I hate having to change implements. I especially hate hooking up the post auger, but I don’t want to dig them by hand so I do it. Sometimes like you said, you have to just bite the bullet and do it.

Swapping the forks for the bucket isn't usually a big deal WHEN there is no snow or ice. I kinda forgot to plan for that when I positioned the pallets they are stored on when not in use. There will have to be a change next year!

I haven't put the post auger on yet. I hear that is one of the "not much fun" implements. Heavy and ungainly. I've seen where people have made supports on dollys so they just lower the auger and arch down and unhook. Of course those people also have big barns with nice level concrete floors. Don't have that here!
