    Artillian Fork Frame...

    I can find plenty of info about Artillian forks. I plan on purchasing the 36" forks because I likely will be using them mostly for landscaping needs. I'd like some opinions, however, concerning fork frames. I could see the receiver hitch being handy, and it looks to strengthen the frame significantly. Maybe I already answered my own question, but any reason to get the 2300 LB capacity frame over the 3000 LB capacity?

    Weight savings, unless your tractor is a 4/5/6 Series and will really make use of the stronger frame, save your $ and #'s.

    No worries about torquing the frame?

    I would look at the 42" forks. Most pallets are 44-48". I feel 36 is pretty small.

    I just ordered a set from Artillian and I went with the 3000 lb frame, not so much for the extra weight capacity but for the built-in receiver hitch. The 2300 lb has an add-on receiver hitch available, but if you buy both of those it's cheaper to just buy the 3000 and have the receiver in place permanently.

    I had a hard time deciding between the 36" and 42" forks, finally went with the 42". I think these will be better for hauling brush, time will tell.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Yeah, that receiver hitch could be very useful. I'm pretty set on the 36" forks, and I'm leaning toward the 3000 lb frame because I'll be using them more for landscaping than for lifting pallets. We have a whole lotta property to reclaim, with the more-than-occasional rock reaching out of the ground.

    The 36" work great even on 44"-48" pallets. Even the 36" sometimes feel like they stick 'way out there' when in a tight place. You won't be disappointed...and you save a few pounds.

    Well said!

    The 3000 Lb capacity frames are our newer design, originally created for the 4000 series tractors. However, the 3000 Lb capacity frame only ended up weighing 18 lbs more and was able to accommodate a built-in 2" receiver included in that weight.

    We do still offer the 2" Receiver Adapter for those who have or choose the 2300Lb capacity frames, but it's money saved to just go with the 3000 Lb frame from the start, as long as you can tolerate the 18 lb (which to us is actually a significant 25%! ) increase in weight of the frame.

    Regarding fork length, it's much a matter of preference but consider the FAQ information at Artillian FAQ

    Hope this helps.
