    1025r FILB pallet fork considerations

    In spring i plan to buy a set of pallet forks and brush gaurds. I need to move a far amount of trees that have blown down and the bucket just takes quit a few trips.. clearing a few arces in my yard that have taken a toll in past storms..

    So what is the difference between the JD forks and those offered by others. Any motivating reason to go a different direction than JD. Looking at JD pricing they are comeptitively priced..What am I missing if anything?

    Weight. Like 400lbs versus 200lbs for the Artillian fork set. Artillian Tractor Attachments - Light-Weight Heavy-Duty Pallet Forks for John Deere Subcompact & Compact Tractors

    You wont find a better built set on the planet, and with plenty of options you can get a complete setup that suites your particular situation.

    What are you missing?

    Artillian is what your missing....

    Under the vendor section check out his link.

    I'm wanting some forks as well.....but I know where I'll be going for them when the piggy bank is ready.

    I had JD (Horst Welding) forks on our 2320. Although a good set of forks I would not recommend them for a 1025r. I eventually sold them when the Artillian forks came out.

    Another vote for Artillian, there is no other fork set for the 1 series.

    I know the Artillians are expensive, that concern lasts up to the point you open the box. Once you see the quality first hand you realize you made the correct decision. The light weight Artillians will let you lift more than any other fork set which is very important when trying to do tree work with a 1 series.

    I spent months trying to find a less expensive set when I finally broke down and got a set of Artillians and there have been zero regrets.....well except for the waisted time of looking for a less expensive set

    I have the Artillian 36" and they work great for moving logs and brush. They'll pay for themselves in no time.

    That 200 lb saved by the Artillian forks is a full 20% of the 1 series FEL lifting capacity.

    I just bought the Artillian setup a few weeks ago from advice here, you won't disappointed, I was able to get a set of forks from my father in law, but the quick attached is awesome!

    My vote is for the Artillian forks, very well made and lighter than others. They have seen more use than the bucket has and during a recent garage demolition they where priceless!

    Good to see I'm not the only one who had to zip tie the hydraulic line cover in place to keep it from falling off.
