    Cool Uses for landscape (24" long) forks

    Guys,

    I recently purchased a set of landscape forks from Artillian. Wow, are they ever useful. My bucket has been getting a long break in the JD Room as I play with the forks. I've found them useful for:

    1. Moving large brush piles.
    2. Moving 500 lb. boulders.
    3. Pulling up English Ivy vines.
    4. Moving lawn furniture on my custom made (32" deep x 48" wide) pellets.
    5. Moving logs.
    6. Quickly lifting out unwanted shrubs.
    7. Scaring my Schnauzer (she's afraid of anything that looks even remotely like a weapon).

    I like my 42" forks and backrest for brush piles, but there's nothing more satisfying than popping a bush out of the ground with the 24"s.

    Same here! Except if it's an all day project you have to start the tractor a few times to raise the forks back to working height thanks to JD's loader leak-down rate.

    Actually, everything except #6 (and maybe #2) can be accomplished with the 42" forks. The 24" landscape forks really shine when you need to "leverage" something out with the curl function. You don't need them often but when you do, only the 24" will do.

    Meanwhile, the 42" stay on the tractor 80% of the time. :-)
