    Default Pallet fork recommendations?

    Hello everyone.
    I just got my first tractor, a new CT235, and one of the attachments I want to get ASAP is a good set of pallet forks.
    I have roughly 18 acres of woods I need to do some maintenance in, and would like to use the forks to stack logs for cutting/drying, move a wood hopper around in winter, as well as place heavy items in racks when not in use - snowmobile in the summer for instance.
    Wondering what people suggest as the best set of forks for the money?

    Thanks!!
    JG

    I have these for my ct230 and I like them. Pretty good price too. They might be slightly heavier though.

    There also have 42 inch forks for a little more.

    I bought a set of skid steer forks off of craigslist for $300 but they are really too heavy for my CT230. I would go with something as light as you can find that can withstand your loader ratings so you don't loose a lot of lift capacity.

    It seems like when I was looking I found a set of 2000lb forks on eBay, I don't remember the name of the place but you might try searching there in addition to what k0ua gave you.

    Don't buy a full sized 4000lb set of skidsteer forks but don't get bucket forks either. 42 inch light duty 2000lb capacity quick attach forks would be a good match for your loader lift capabilities.

    The ones recommended above from construction attachments look fine though I am surprised at the price as you can get a full sized set for not much more. Might be worth checking eBay too.

    I kept hunting for a used set but only found forks that were to big and heavy for my CK30hst(CT230 kin). I finally bought the EA ones mentioned by K0ua. They're listed as weighing 220lbs with a capacity of 1800lbs. They seem lighter than 220 if I move them around by hand. As Island mentioned, a 2400lb set isn't that much more but it's overkill and adding more weight for our smaller loader capacity. Mine work well for what the loader can handle.

    I bought at set of 48 inch forks and use the extra 6 inches often when moving things. When carrying full pallets they go all the way through and limit stacking some but when used for logs are helpful.

    just food for thought
