    Ability to see tips and heal of tines in a 3x20 cab

    Hiya,

    Question for anyone that is using Chris' forks with the optional backstop on a 3x20 cab tractor with a 300cx loader. Can you see both the tips and heals of the tines from the normal seating position when the forks are on the ground or slightly above like lining up to lift a pallet?

    I ask because I currently have Deere forks and I either have to stand up or lean way over to see where the forks are going and I'm getting sick of it. I didn't have this issue on the open station/Horst forks I had before this.

    Tom

    Tom...I dont have a 3 series nor cab. But on my 2 series I cant see the heel unless the forks are spread out to max width... and I have to stand up to see the tips. I have 36" forks. I would think it would be close to the same with the larger tractor and 42" forks. Probably would help if I painted the tips red...or something

    Hopefully someone that has your set up can answer your inquiry more better.

    There will always be occasions where some things are visible and some aren't. There is a trick to leveling your forks without even seeing them. I've been wanting to make a short film about it for a long time, but can't get to it.

    1-Curl the loader back fully.

    2-Rest the loader to the ground in float. (The fork heels should be resting on the ground)

    3-Take the loader out of float.

    4-Slowly dump the loader just until the tips start lifting the front end. Stop.

    5-Curl back slightly and your forks should be very close to level, enough to get into a pallet.

    6-(most important) Be sure someone to have someone watching so they can tell everyone else what a pro you are.

    Hope this helps.
