I am interested in buying pallet forks for my tractor. I was considering the type that attach to the bucket on the front end loader. The more I read about these I started to doubt whether to get the light duty bucket attached type or go with the quick connect, Artillian appears to be the brand of choice. I am in New Brunswick, Canada and from what I have read, the shipping costs are high, if they will even ship to Canada. I am about an hour from Houlton, Maine and if I could get them shipped there it would be a fairly easy procedure. I understand the Artillian quick connect are reasonably lightweight and that is important to me because I cannot lift or tug on these things because of health issues.
Sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself...the question is whether the type that attach to the bucket are good and from some of the articles I have read, they say when they are attached to the bucket you operate blindly because the bucket blocks your vision.
Keep in mind the forks will be used at my home property to move fairly light items, not for commercial use and they will not be used frequently. My dealer has a quick connect set up in stock, they seem to be very heavy duty and probably heavier duty then I need. It is still an option.
Any thoughts on this, please let me know.
Thanks folks, I appreciate any feed back you can give me.
