    Jeff, I made this it's own thread-it would get lost in the "What did you do..." thread-those are not really for questions anyway.

    My vote:
    Save you money and get some real Quick Attach forks, you loose to much lift capacity, you have to work blind since the bucket blocks your view, and you risk damaging your bucket as well.

    Lots of discussion here on Titan products in general if you do a search...

    I agree with Kennyd. Save for a bit longer and get the quick attach forks. You will be much happier. I have the Titan forks and bale spears and really like them, however you may like the EA, Artillian, or another brand better or they just fit your budget. Either way you go, I guarantee a set of forks will be one of your favorite attachments.

    Those two posts just about says it all.
    Note: The more you like the fork set you buy the more you'll use them, like most things.

    I came very close to buying clamp on forks some years ago. But after doing a lot of research and hearing the opinions here I held back - eventually got a set of Artilian forks.

    My frame of mind was that I would only need forks occasionally - maybe a couple times a year - so the clamp on would be "good enough". What I have found - as so many others have said - is that 1.5 years later now the forks are on my tractor 90% of the time. I think I put my bucket on twice last year for short specific projects then put the forks right back on.

    Once you have forks you will use them a lot more than you think. Do it right the first time and get a quick attach fork set. They will last you a lifetime so do it right the first time.

    I purchased the Artillian frame and forks.

    The real goal was to get the Artillian Grapple.... but I started with the forks, then added the grapple later.

    I didn't figure I would use the forks much, but since I had the frame anyway.... I got the forks.

    Like others have said - They are more handy than you think.

    I started with this:

    The forks did the heavy lifting:

    And ended with this. Now my wife even appreciates the forks!

    They have come in very handy for several other projects as well. None I would have tried with clamp on forks either.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    don't do it

    I unfortunately tried to save money by buying a set of bolt on's. When trying to get under items, the angle of the forks would change and I would have to back out of what I was trying to do and re-adjust the forks. It doesn't take much drag on the ground to move them. After much frustration, bought a set of real forks.
