    What are those Landscaping Forks for?

    People have asked what would the 24" forks be useful for. The better question is, on a utility tractor, what can't they be used for? They don't work so well for a fully loaded, evenly distributed pallet. And they won't carry as large of a brush pile. But other than that, they are the handiest suckers around and almost always on my own machine. Here's a quick video demonstration.

    Got to say I love the landscape forks. I use the 42" forks when I need to move pallets and large amounts of brush, but otherwise the landscape forks stay on my 2520 - I even prefer these to the bucket most of the time! Recently I used them to pry up some sidewalk that needed to be replaced and to remove a 10" diameter stump. Awesome forks and I couldn't imagine not having them!

    They are my primary tool as well. More torque at the tips. Good for digging things out and lifting rocks. Latest victory:

    Note: nature did most of the work here by blowing the tree over onto it's neighbor, but the forks finished the job easily.

    This is the true benefit of the landscape forks. Picking up 500lb boulders with ease and agility.

    The landscaping tines sure make moving big stuff fun! They are even good for removing small tree stumps.

    Well put guys.

    Another thing I really like about these tines is how much easier they are for maneuvering and just plain walking around. I never would have imagined such a difference.
