    I got my forks last night!!!

    I got my forks put on lastnight, wow are those things handy!! I was able to play with them for a little bit, but it was dark and all I can say is, how in the world did i live without them before? I have several big projects planned this weekend for them and will post pictures when the jobs are complete.

    So, when does the new Dyson arrive? I'm sure Chris has your wife well informed that when you get new forks, she gets a new Dyson. They should be sold as a set. Right Gizmo?

    A Dyson or a Shark! I sure hope Firehawk21 didn't give out his home phone number to Artillian.

    Firehawk21,
    I went 20 years without a set of forks for our 650 and the WOW factor was beyond explaining when I got a set in 2008 for the 2320.

    Put them to work this weekend

    Well i was able to find the limit of the loader, but not the forks... I now understand why everyone says that the forks stay on and the bucket is a secondary tool, I LOVE these things!!
    This pallet of limestone is just about all it wanted to pickup. I had 1550 lbs on one pallet and it would not even budge it, so i split it into 2 pallets and was able to move them seperatly. Thanks Artillian for a great product, and yes I got the candy with my order (ended up giving that to my wife).

    Old school Model 50 Box Blade. The tractor sure knows that it is back there, but I never worry about lifting the rear end.... I also doubt that the "safety police" can accuse me of not having enough ballast...
