    Pallet fork question

    What brand do you guys like the best. Frontier or Artillian or something else. As I was in my trrestand last night waiting for a deer that never came, I noticed I have alot of smaller trees down. Theres no way I could get my tractor in there but my wheeler could drag them out. I was thinking with a set of forks I could stack and move these once I got them to the field. I'm guessing a grapple would be alot of money. Plus I have a huge rock that I bent my old bucket trying to move last year. I think with a set of forks I can do it.

    I can only speak for the ones I have, Horst or Fronteir model. 3500 pound version. They are heavy but have done me well.

    I have read a lot of good things about the Artillian models but never seen them in person.

    it so much easier to move and store
    the pallet forks when not in use
    best wishes

    Is a fixed pallet fork mean just that or do all forks adjust and they are talking about the mount on the tractor. I know on a fork truck the base move left or right. I would need the forks to adjust.

    Re: Pallet fork question

    They adjust side to side, but they do not float, they are fixed to the bottom of the fork carrier. Floaters on attach to the top of the carrier.

    The Artillians I have for my H120/1026 have chain slots for I believe 5/8 links. Very handy when dealing with big loads and it's real easy to wrap a chain around to keep branches/logs in place if you have any terrain to deal with going from your loading to your dumping site. You have a larger rig so I'd have to refer you to Chris at Artillian for a size chart. Very friendly and full of information.

    I looked at the specs online and the frontier is 380 lbs and the Artillian is 229 lbs. That a big differance in weight. I wonder if a set of Ken's hooks would work on these.

    I believe the Artillian forks have chain slots built in.

    One note, maybe I misunderstood your earlier post. No tractor forks will hydraulically move side to side. Such an attachment could be added, but due to the cost, weight, and limited need nobody offers a ready to go set. You can adjust the Frontier and Artillian forks by hand though.

    I wasn't talking about fixed or floating forks. I now know the difference. Maybe it's just me but the frontier just look stronger and are cheaper.

    Steve, can you try asking your question a different way please? I am unsure what you are asking...and I think 56FD is as well.

    Here is a chart on the Artillian site that may help you decide: Pallet Fork Sets

    It shows that they are indeed rated for the lift capacity of your machine. The added features and accessories available both now and in the future may be interesting to you. You certainly can't go wrong with the Frontiers either.
