    Sometimes, as soon as Artillian comes out with the extensions! Half the cost, twice the length, what's not to like.

    I bought the 42" forks, expecting to use them for pallets that I will start collecting soon. In the meantime, I've been trying to use them for digging and transplanting some small trees and shrubs and find that my 1026R has a lack of power and weight for what I am trying to do. So I will be ordering a set of 24" tines in the near future. The 42's are great for moving logs and brush, but their length doesn't give me the leverage I need, or I've been trying to move too much.

    In any case, I'm happy I bought them and just figure the shorter ones will expand their usefulness.

    Just my 2 cents.

    For digging you can't beat the 24" forks. I use them on my 2305 and they work great even on pallets. slkpk

    I think this is the first poll I have ever responded to where I ended up in the highest percentage group. Does this make me normal?

    I have both the 42" and 24" and I like them equally. For carrying logs and brush ....42's hands down. For tearing up roots and stumps the 24's are perfect.For picking up my 60D for service work it is the 42's again. Depends on the application but if I had to chose one it would be the 42's.
