Same opinion here. I have Frontier 42” forks and backrest frame and they’re the perfect length IMHO. That being said longer forks are a bit easier to see ahead of the tractor hood, loader and fork frame although the length makes it somewhat more difficult to maneuver.42" is perfect for a 1, 2, and even a 3 series. I use my 42" forks A LOT, and have never wished for longer ones
I didn't really answer this part of the question, I think they will be very popular and quite strong, they will test them to be sure as EA has a great reputation of quality products and they do stand behind them. I'm not sure however they will be "better" than the US made Cascade tines that Artillian has.or have thoughts on the new design hardox forks?
3" wide, there is no need for 4" forks on a 1, 2, or 3 series, just adds extra weight that you don't need.@Kennyd, curious if you have the 3" wide forks or went 4" on your Artillian? I'm coming away from the longer fork mentality and thinking 42" is the way to go on these smaller tractors, just can't decide on a width. I know Artillian has three options in that length and I need to get it narrowed down.
I'd call that more abuse than testing, but there's nothing wrong with ensuring the lowest common denominator will also be able to not destroy their products. 🤣When you say “test them” you mean it! Check out EAs videos of Ted beating the he!! out of stuff while testing it, good stuff!
