    Website updates - changes to the 3000Lb (HD) Fork Sets

    A minor (boring) announcement:

    With the recent addition of the Skid Steer pallet fork sets, we've been having to make some changes to the layout of the website. In the process, we're updating some part numbers as well as the way products get combined for ordering.

    Two of the pages have been changed over to the new system so far with more to follow soon. The "HD" fork sets will be more appropriately referred to as "3000 Lb Capacity" fork sets (this applies to both the JDQA and SSQA sets).

    Nothing has changed with the products. We're just trying to make the ordering process better and offer more options, such as the ability to order an HD fork set with lighter tines for use on a 1000 series tractor.

    As part of this update, we're also starting to offer these "HD" frames with the built-in hitch receiver. They are pretty sweet.

    Anyway, once you wake up from reading all of this, please feel free to have a look. Criticisms are welcome. But again, some of it is still in flux, e.g., updated images are still in the works.

    Sorry 56FG, we're still not quite ready to start doing them for the 5000's yet. But it's still a goal!!!

    Thanks all.

    this is kind of off-topic, but is it safe to use the ssqa forks on a 5 series with an ssqa bracket?

    Glad to see this. About to place an order for a fork set, grapple and a few other odds and ends. Like having the hitch built in! I'll be ordering this week hopefully.

    The Receiver in the HD Frame is really nice!

    With a D ring receiver it is also another lifting point....

    All kind of things plug into a 2" receiver...

    John,

    This is a perfectly appropriate question.

    With the JDQA fork sets, we know exactly which machines they will be used on and can spec designs accordingly.

    With the SSQA attaching scheme so ubiquitous throughout the earth moving machinery world, we have no control over what they will end up on. This is the reason for the note on the website about being responsible for choosing the fork set that matches your machine. On that note, this is also why we opted not to make any 2300lb SSQA frames. It would just be a matter of time until somebody put one on a big Bobcat and I don't want the phone call of the result of that. For the 10lb weight deficit, it didn't seem worth putting anyone at risk, regardless of their ignorance.

    These SSQA fork sets will work on the 5 series loaders with SSQA mounts, but again, the user needs to know the capabilities of their machine and choose accordingly.

    Thanks for the question

    Jeez, didn't' even make it a day. I've already anticipated this question and, in the Artillian spirit of not wanting to leave any of our cherished customers out in the cold, already have a plan for a field installable hitch receiver kit for the frames already out in the world without them. Please be patient and this will be available asap.

    Thanks

    No, I just can't see that happening.


    I not so patiently waited, but I waited.

    Now I get to show off!



    I sounds like Chris has you covered.

    Yup, as usual, he's one step ahead of the rest of us!!


    So..... once I get my retro-fitted, field installable receiver hitch kit installed on my frame, does anybody wanna buy the [email protected] receiver hitch JDQA that I have.

    See how nice and flush the [email protected] fits all the way across the contact surface of the FEL frame? I'm glad my Artillian frame doesn't fit like this!!

    THANKS, Chris - for turning out a great product and for being such a creative thinker so that you do come up with ways to retrofit your product improvements!!
