Many things to add, but I chose to go with pallet forks, so I could unload and move all the other things I would be buying and adding later. Another addition I've found very useful is a canopy. It makes it a lot more comfortable to spend hours in the sun. I don't have a backhoe so I have no idea if it and a canopy are compatible, though.Hello
4 hours total time since picked it up!
Been reading on here about different ways to move trailers around with different receiver mounts....what's the one to get?
How about other favorite accessories?
Welcome to the site. We love spending someone else's :gizmo:My favorite implement for my 1025 is pallet forks - secondly you will want a set of at least 2 Kens Bolt on Grab hooks! I got three and love them.
I did make a mistake when I bought my forks I got some nice heavy duty ones and found out later that the lift capacity was greatly reduced because the forks are naturally part of the weight. I'd recommend 36" artillian -
Good luck and congrats on the new green machine... enjoy !!
+1I would also invest in a good grease gun. Grease. Tech manual. Extra fuel filters. All those extra goodies are of no use unless it is running.

When at the Artillian site look for the hitch receiver that goes right on the fork frame.thanks for all the info!
Hooks got ordered this am
I want to use it to move boat trailers and such around, no real towing, just a quick way to put a 2' or 2 5/16" ball on it....
I'll dive into the artillian site today and figure them out
please keep ideas coming
I personally can't fathom this logic. Spend $20k for the best quality brand of tractor, but then buy a garbage rust-from-the-inside-out attachment to do some of the most strenuous work the tractor will perform? Could have saved another $5k and bought a Ginma to match the forks, which, by they way, are a loose knockoff of our design. That is what this company does, copy the work of others and outsource it cheaply offshore. Sadly, ethics is a missing attribute, encouraged by equally lacking or unwitting participants.Forks. I was set on getting the Artillian forks, but never had the extra thousand dollars sitting around that it would take to get them, then someone here mentioned the Titans...
Buy the Artillian forks to support US made products and to save 20 lbs of weight, but for me the difference in price was just too much - and the Titans have a built-in hitch receiver.
