Received an email at work from Babycakes a few minutes ago with pictures......email subject line read "New Vacuum Cleaner"
I thought... "WHAT?"
Never saw it coming (AGAIN!). I'm getting too old to keep up.

You certainly don't deserve these... :nunu:







Your wife on the other hand should've gotten them a loooong time ago. :good2:

Should've known better than to buy the vacuum cleaner bit. :)
Oh she'll probably get a new vacuum cleaner now. I guess I could return the frame and guard.

I will probably sell this frame I bought in 2008. Tines will be used on the new frame.............if I like the new frame. I have not seen it yet, only the pictures.

Boy, she sure did a number on that box! Impressive...Looks like it's best not to get her upset. :laugh:
:lol: Women!
I guess you know now that I am on the hook for buying a new vacuum cleaner and I don't think it's going to be from one of those box stores either. I think you should add a fill-in box on your Web site saying something like "Enter Spouse Gift Card Amount" so guys like me can visualize the REAL cost of these forks after the wife finds out. Just Sayin!

You'd better get one heck a a vacuum cleaner to make up for that!

BTW you're the one who should buy the vacuum. I would not be here to see them if you hadn't twisted my arm. At the very least half.

And your point is?

Seriously, can you try to weigh the old Horst frame so we can compare?

Good idea! Just have to figure out where.
When I grow up I want to be smart like you.:lol:

Is that with or without the forks?

Without the forks.

You could have checked the shipping label, should had the weight on it.
I bought the Horst frame in 2008 from the dealer and had no shipping label.

I would have guess more than 180 lbs.

6.5" more height lift than with the Horst Frame. Measured at the bottom of the tines at full height.:thumbup1gif:
Wife said it looked more like 10". I had to tell her, different type of measurement.:lol:

Agree, my new Artillian forks cost me a new Dyson. Wonder how it'll work to clean the JD?:unknown:

At least the Artillian forks came with a piece of candy. Wait, she got that too. :crazy:
