Save you money and get some real Quick Attach forks, you loose to much lift capacity, you have to work blind since the bucket blocks your view, and you risk damaging your bucket as well.
Those two posts just about says it all.I agree with Kennyd. Save for a bit longer and get the quick attach forks. You will be much happier. I have the Titan forks and bale spears and really like them, however you may like the EA, Artillian, or another brand better or they just fit your budget. Either way you go, I guarantee a set of forks will be one of your favorite attachments.
same here. i have titans and couldn't be happier!I agree with Kennyd. Save for a bit longer and get the quick attach forks. You will be much happier.

This made me laugh, I actually bought a set of the clamp/chain binder style 20 years ago. I've used them maybe 2 or three times total since my initial purchase, they've been leaning against the shed unused now for at least twelve years.I came very close to buying clamp on forks some years ago. But after doing a lot of research and hearing the opinions here I held back - eventually got a set of Artilian forks.
My frame of mind was that I would only need forks occasionally - maybe a couple times a year - so the clamp on would be "good enough". What I have found - as so many others have said - is that 1.5 years later now the forks are on my tractor 90% of the time. I think I put my bucket on twice last year for short specific projects then put the forks right back on.
Once you have forks you will use them a lot more than you think. Do it right the first time and get a quick attach fork set. They will last you a lifetime so do it right the first time.
Will, your 410 loader should have the JDQA setup already?So with no QA, what would one need to buy, in order to use the Titan or Artillian forks? I certainly would like to have forks, but putting out the $$ for both a JDQA and the Titan forks, you quickly get close to a 4 digit spend.
Does anyone make a QA that is JD compatible, but for le$$?
Yup. :good2:Yes, that's it! Mine is the same as in the 1st pic, so is that what is called the JDQA? Please pardon my ignorance, but I only have bought this pre-owned tractor a few weeks ago, and I am still learning it. In fact, I have not yet tried removing either the bucket, or the loader. I can see that removing the bucket looks easy. Not sure about removal of the loader yet.
But back to the question; so with my setup, I can use either the Artillian, or Titan forks, w/o needing anything else?
