    Guess-What-Day-IT IS!!!

    IT'S ARTILLIAN FORK DAY!

    I received my forks today and they are GREAT!! Not a flaw, not a blemish, not a fingerprint....PERFECT.

    Chris, I can't thank you enough for all your help getting them to me. They were shipped to Fife, WA via FedEX, then to Sterling, AK via Anchorage by Lynden Transport. It took about 2 weeks but well worth the wait.

    I almost got a set when I took delivery of my tractor in July, but, thanks to GTT, I decided to go with the Artillian. With shipping costs I ended up paying about $250 more than a Deere set but have 2 sets of forks, a brush guard, and a far superior product.

    I spent the rest of my day in the seat trying them out. I moved a bunch of railroad ties that I use to support my electric bear fence. I moved my bee hives to their winter location, I cleaned up left over timbers from a recent deck project, and showed it off to my neighbor. I'd still be out there but my wife insisted that she feed me some homemade chicken and noodles with homemade biscuits and fresh honey.

    I'm finding GTT my favorite internet site, but it's costing me money. Thanks to recent post, I think started by dieselshadow, I may have to have a Top and Tilt next.

    Thanks again Chris!

    Don't mention winter where Farmgirl can see it. She has this thing about winter or snow. We do not want her upset.

    Rick,

    Thanks to you, if the rest of my day is horrible, I'll still have a smile on my face.

    It has been a privilege to be at your service, and thanks again for the sweet sampler. My own "honey" has been putting your honey on everything. We'd like to thank each of your bees, individually.

    Now let's see some photos of Alaska!

    I'm not convinced Skyboss1952 has the fork set. A picture or 2 would do it for me though.

    Yesterday was Artillian Fork Day for me as well! My set only had to go to Wisconsin but they made it safely.

    Now I am just waiting for the front quick hitch adapter and diverter to be available.

    Thanks Chris!!!

    In addition to Giz's request for a pic or two of the forks, I would like to see a couple of pics of this electric bear fence...

    It took me a second to get this, but that's hilarious. I can't stand the company, but I have to admit, it is a great commercial. Mike mike mike mike!

    Almost missed this one, thanks much Big J! I'm glad to hear everything made the journey safely. The QH adapter and diverter are the burning projects right now (see the new thread from earlier today). And once the diverter is done (the hardest part), the grapple will be right behind. And then the fire rake, and...and...and...much more to come.

    Thanks again!
