    Let's see, in the past week I moved a 2000 lb pallet of railroad ties, my two 55 gallon water barrels filled and mounted on a pallet, a pallet of bricks and a pallet of ground cover fabric to place in the veggie field. Having a set of forks sure makes handling stuff like this a breeze.

    I bought my forks last year, just to have in case because a friend had used his when I was at his house and I thought thoes could come in handy. Now that I have them I can't even imagion not having them, and with quick attach man you can switch in a minute or less. Best tool I ever bought!

    Update with bad news and good news -
    As with some other companies, the notice that my forks were "shipped" merely meant that the order had been processed and the shipping label had been sent to the warehouse. I got a call this afternoon from a guy at the warehouse. It turns out that the 42" forks are backordered, and won't be in for about 6 weeks. The good news is that he offered to upgrade me to the the 48" forks for a very attractive price.

    I believe my JD 4600 with 460 loader will handle the 48" forks just fine. I would have ordered that size anyway, but I thought the $125 price difference listed in the web site was a bit steep.

    The warehouse guy told me that my 48" forks, on a JDQA frame, should be physically shipped tomorrow. I'm a happy camper!

    I have the 48" with the high strength bale spear. The forks are a little more weight when you reposition them side to side, but nothing too bad. You might like the extra length when picking off a pallet that slid forward on a truck or was loaded too deep. The added 80 lbs isn't too bad.

    After using mine for the past few months I am glad I went with the 48" and now would consider the 60". I too was torn over the extra increase between 42" and 48" but have no regrets on spending the extra money.

    Be careful loading the tip only of the fork.

    Might cause the curl cylinders to go into by pass mode.
