ironic, isn't it, how you need forks to unload the forks?
so, we load the pallet from the fedex semi into the bucket, drive it back to the barn and assemble it.
here is how it came...
it was packaged OK, a 2 out of 5 stars on that simply because it had some paint missing from were the strapping was as well as a big scratch from a nail on the pallet. is was strapped on with steel strapping.
so, i cut the strapping and set the frame on the QA. my first thought was ' darn, that pin is to far out to the left' but, as luck would have it, the entire thing was to far to the left. i pushed it over, and boom, it fit perfectly!
the fit i would rank 5/5 stars.
then, added tines;
again, great fit. they do need the slide rails greased, however.
i also added the optional bale spear kit for 65 bucks;
so far, 5/5 on that as well.
the first thing i did was fork the bucket;
overall, im very pleased. i would rate a 4/5 stars, only because the packing was not as good as i would have liked so that paint was damaged (that could be fixed by simply placing a piece of cardboard over everything and then strapping down), and the overall fit and finish was not exactly perfect (there were a couple spots were the paint dripped and ran down the metal).
btw, these are titan 48" 3000 pound forks with the optional bale spear. they look really good, and i am very happy with them so far.
