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?

What are you missing? :unknown:

Artillian is what your missing....:good2:

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.

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. :)

Forks

Artillian are the best, I'm so glad I got the 36" units. I have more uses for them than the bucket.

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!

If that box is full of tools, then thats pretty impressive. My top box was heavy enough before I filled it. I need some pallet forks. One of these days I will have some.

Guys,

I thought my 53" bucket was one of my most useful attachments ... until I received my Artillian landscape forks. Like others have said, they're very well made and easy to use. My Quick Attach allows me to change from bucket to forks in about a minute. Try to do that with an orange tractor. (Maybe you can, I don't know but it sounded like a great statement anyway.) First you get the spoon (bucket) then you get the forks and next would be the knife (Artillian, are you listening?).
