I'm looking for opinions on 36" vs 42" forks, which is the best to have?
The difference in weight between a pair of standard taper 36x3-inch and 42x3-inch is only around 8 lbs (112 lbs. vs 120 lbs.). Just because you have longer fork tines doesn't mean you have to keep your pallet out at the end.it depends on your intended usage. I bought 42. Which is great for pallets and when I moved my truck bed. But it takes away lift capacity. If you properly load your pallets you can be fine but if improperly balanced you might create tip. 36 is great for most general lifting with the smaller machines and modest pallet moving but the 42s have come in handy for me before. Especially before I bought the load and go brackets for my 60d
