    Default Bucket Forks

    Yesterday I used my 2210 with clamp-on bucket forks to move a large heavy 12 ft Bow Window. Had to lift it from a high decked truck, then carefully bring it down a hill, next up another hill. Not sure of the exact weight, I'll guess 500 pounds. It handled it well, but with little margin to spare. I've found that the load weight using these forks is so far forward, it limits the capacity. But yesterday, the Mighty Deere didn't disappoint.

    Very nice. I am wanting a set of Artillian forks..They will bring the load closer to the lift arms.

    It is shocking to see that little tractor lift that big window with those forks and not bend the forks or the bucket. I had no idea they were that strong. What is the lift capacity of your tractor?
    I have a JD 790 I could use forks on as well as a larger JD5520. Forks have been buzzing in my head for a while now. Lift forks seem like a perfect answer.

    May I be the kind of person my dogs think I am,
