    A guy down the road has some that I borrowed a couple of times. Very handy....VERY expensive. I good set that will work just fine with the 2305 can be had for 1/2 the cost of these. You don't need 5000# cap with a small machine like the 2305. The set of forks Weights almost 400#

    Who makes a good Pallet Fork that fits the John Deere 300 Loader? The Four-Star seems also designed for a much bigger loader. The clips are about twice the size of my loaders. That makes for a very loose connection.

    Check out Paynesforks.com. I'm ordering a med duty set for my 4120.
    Deere 4120 eHydro, 445 Hydro, 2210 Hydro, 320X Hydro, Kawasaki 3010 Mule. Lots of implements. I'm pretty sure this Deere addiction is a sickness!

    Horst (as mentioned already) and Frontier are your best bet...Not many make the JDQA style forks.

    The clamp on the bucket kind? If so, then why when you have the QA on your loader?

    I am kind of looking at this pallet fork http://cgi.ebay.com/Pallet-Forks-Joh...item2ea891b00e

    I looked at the Frontier yesterday and they are nice and heavy duty. I am just not sure if they are worth the extra $500 for the heavy duty for the 2305.

    Looks like they will work just fine for your 2305. The Frontier's should be right around $800-where did you get your price of $1235 ($735 + $500) for them?

    Do you weld? If so you can easily make your own...

    Construction Attachments 42" John Deere, John Deer, Quick Attach JD, Compact Pallet Forks CAL-1PFCMPSM42

    Those are the ones I bought, BECAUSE they are light weight and still can lift twice as much as my 2520 can.
    DON'T buy the heavy JD Forks, they weigh around 400 LBs, maybe 450!
    The ones I bought weigh just over 200 Lbs, so that means that my tractor can now lift 200 Lbs or more EXTRA than it could with the JD forks.
    The JD forks are wayyyyyyy to strong and are too heavy for our little tractors, your 2305 even more so than my 2520.
    JD 2520 --- FEL, I-Match, Frontier RC2460 Rotary Cutter, Pallet Forks, DR Brush Chipper, JD Ballast Box, 71 Flex Planter!
