    We have both the 24" and 42" if I had to pick one it would be the 42" hands down. Bought the 24" for a specific job and it worked out well.

    Artillian, I see you did not vote. Which do you prefer, picking only one length?

    I also have both the 24's & the 42's. The long ones are on there mostly, the short ones are awesome for rocking, rooting and ripping a trench.

    Thanks for asking Gizmo. I didn't want to contaminate the crime scene with my own opinions. But since you ask, I use the 24" most of the time and occasionally the 42's for bulk items or for an extended reach. If I were to pick one, it would be the 24's for the things that I do.

    The 24's are also less of a hazard when trying to maneuver around buildings and all of the other 'stuff'. With the backhoe and the 42" forks on, the overall machine is almost 20' long. It's like being the captain of a ship.

    For me, it's all about wringing as much effort out of the loader as I can for the times when I need it or, exerting as little strain as possible on the overall tractor for the longevity of the machine the rest of the time.

    I'm thinking it's more like you need more stuff to do with your tractor. Just Sayin!
