    Did John Deere brand their own forks?

    I'm looking to purchase a set of forks for my 2520 w/ 200CX loader. Found a guy with a JD 790 w/ a 300 loader forks. I know the quick attach is the same, but he told me they're John Deere branded. Did at some point JD brand their own pallet forks, rather than what they do with Frontier now? I haven't found much on Google to see what these would look like and I don't have pictures the forks. Could use some help if anyone has anything to share before I drive an hour to check these out.

    According to JDParts, Deere produced their own Forks under the following model numbers:

    No. 2, No. 4, 26, TP26, 27, 30, 2010, JD380, JD480, JD480A, 59, 543, 480C, 482C, 485E, 486E, 488E and 444JR.

    Edited to add: Some of these are forks, some are actual complete forklifts with their own engine, transmission, etc...

    Whether JD or Frontier branded, they are most likely to heavy for your 2520. Can he send you a picture?

    Nice score! $300 for them is a great deal-try them for a while and hopefully they will work well for you.
