    Default Bradco Forks

    I have been wanting forks for a while and am thinking about these. Does anyone have them or used them? Anything good or bad to say about them or the dealer would be helpful.

    Can't speak for the dealer, but Bradco makes well built forks. I used a friend's pair off and on for over a year (they were quick attach) while we were building our house, moving stone, timbers, etc. They were essentially indestructible. Found them easy to attach and remove from my TC35. Wished I had the funds to make a purchase myself. Fairly heavy, if I recall, so just remember to factor the weight of the forks into what your FEL can lift from the ground. If you have the $$, it's a no brainer, especially if you have to move alot of lumber, etc.

    I have had mine for about four years. Used them on a B3030 with an ATI Q/A and the last almost two years on my Grand L3240. They are very well made and work well. They also are relatively light, not much more weight than a bucket. I have moved lots of material including logs along with popping out a few rocks with them

    I think I paid a little over $500 for them but that was four years ago. That seems to be a good delivered price and they are a TBN advertiser/sponsor. I purchased mine locally here - Inventory - Woodbury Tractor Company, LLC

    I've got the same Bradco forks and love them. Light weight, but rated well higher than my loader. I don't know how I ever lived without them !

    All this talk of pallet forks is convincing me that I should stop borrowing, and maybe get a set!
