    Titan implements

    I see a lot of different post concerning the various Titan implements but my question is very basic and singular for the most part.......how is their quality overall? I am thinking of their box blade and maybe rear ballast box and maybe some other things in the future from them. TN located and made in the USA I hope is a plus.

    So fire away on responses to the build quality. And as always, thank you for taking the time to respond.

    I got the Titan frame for my forks. It's more 3D model; the vertical supports are boxy rather than thick plate steel in just 1 or 2 dimensions.

    Ehhhhhhhh, I wouldn't pay any more for it that what I did.

    Finish quality is good, but it's not JD green. Seems to be a thick powdercoat. So thick I have some trouble moving the forks but it's getting better. I'm learning where to kick them LOL. Weld quality is what a sophmore in high school could do. Splatter is evident, and there's no "row of dimes" pattern anywhere. It's also not watertight along the welds. If I leave it out in the rain (only happened a couple of times) I do get some drainage when I tilt the forks.

    It fits the JDQA just fine, pins and holes line up great, and the cups or whatever at the top are neither too small nor too big. The 120 loader just bumps right on.

    The Titan frame is light enough (75#?) I can pick it up and move it myself. I like that! Sometimes it's just easier to put the frame on by hand after dropping the bucket.

    It came via freight (free?) I think, on a small pallet and was decently wrapped up in cardboard. It did get a little beat up in shipping, but not bad. Every fall I wire brush the bad spots and prime and paint. No structural distortion at all. I feel it can handle the load easily with the capacity of the 120 loader.

    Would I buy another one? Yes. Are there better ones? Maybe. But for me it's at the intersection of "good enough" and "best price".

    I think I got this one^^^^^^^^^^ The trailer hitch receiver is great! SOOOOOOO much better to move a trailer by pushing it. No more stiff neck and you can spot it perfectly.

    same here. I got 3000lb/48" forks/bale spear combo. At a distance, they're fine as far as looks, but up close the welds and finish aren't super pretty. Overall, it works as designed, and it has a pretty good price for what you get.

    There are two different Titan companies, and both are in TN, can you please post a link to the specific one your looking at?

    One makes most things in the USA, and the other imports most things from China and resells them cheaply.

    Welcome to Titan Implement


    Titan Attachments - PalletForks.com - 800-605-8241

    The latter of the two links (palletforks.com), will be the Titan that 99% of the people on here will be referring too, myself included. I have no info about the other placed based in Decatur TN.

    I can't attest to their quality or lack of, but I can attest to "Made in the USA." Titan Implements, LLC...and be careful here, there a a few Titan's mentioned in various threads!... has their corporate office and a manufacturing facility in Decatur, TN, about 30 miles from me. They just opened a second plant in Athens, TN, where I live, about 15 miles from me. When the Athens facility was being set up, I saw lathes, milling machines, CNC equipment, etc. being moved in, as well as raw materials. Both plants have rows and rows of finished products in their yards. I believe their product is actually "Made in the USA."

    Let me expand on that "Made in the USA" a little. I worked for a company that made large rubber and plastic processing equipment. In the early '90's they started buying parts from Taiwan, India, England, and many other off shore facilities. Parts came in, were inspected, then assembled & tested. Just prior to the finished machine being loaded on a truck for shipment to a customer, a "Made in USA" label was placed on it. To me, it should have read, Assembled in USA from parts made all over the world." Be cautious of "Made in the USA" labels! Bob

    Big difference between the two.

    That said, I also have the pallet fork/spear combo, they are what they are. I will say that when I bought mine they were significantly cheaper, their prices have been creeping up, not hard to spend a couple of hundred more on better quality and less weight. If I were buying today and only needed pallet forks I would buy the Frontier.

    I think you'll find anything they sell to be of good quality. The "other" Titan sells things of questionable quality as has already been mentioned.
