    Congratulations to the OP. I am curious as to what kind of pellets. Thanks.

    Not with an MF 1529L you don't. This set being rated at 2k lbs is more than plenty to cover your tractor's capability. You will need to break those pallets of pellets into halves most likely.

    I'll have to go back and look through the manual again. I thought the loader was rated for more than that. I'm at work so I can't get to it for a few days.

    I have to unload the top 3 tier and stack them in the front if the bed so the stack will clear the cap I have on the back. So, technically, it's 1,520lbs. :-)

    Hi DDB123.. looking good, and you will really enjoy having forks. Here is a tip, if the forks are going to stay outside all the time the finish will degrade over time. One thing you can do is spray them with clear Krylon when they are new, and touch them up every now and then, They will stay shiny and you don't have to paint over all the labels with black paint. But you can paint over them with clear "paint" and they still look good. Of course you can paint the forks themselves with black paint, on the tops every now and then. They will get scratched up, and I dont worry about the bottoms as they will always wear off the paint pretty quick, as you are always dragging them on the ground. Anyway they sure are a great thing to have! Enjoy!

    I bought my forks from Artillian and they recommended using paraffin rather than grease to make the forks slide easier. It won't collect dirt. A burned down candle works great.

    That's a good idea. I have some spray cans for touching up my bucket and forks, but haven't had to use them as the bucket (and now the forks, too) will be out of the weather with the tractor. There isn't enough room for the rest of my attachments, though

    You're welcome. I just wanted to give a non-biased review of the forks for anyone else out there shopping.
