Just received mine last week - also the 36". I am so glad that I listened to Chris's recommendation - the 36" are perfect for me.

When I get new gear like this I like to kind of revel or bathe in the feeling and really take my time opening the boxes, read all the documentation, and put it together. Plus I have to prepare for it all as I can't lift or manhandle stuff around anymore. I popped in the included Werther's candy once I had all the boxes open and I was done with the assembly before the candy was done!

You betcha. But, FedEx needs to start cooperating first. They were supposed to hold near where I work so I could pick them up after work, but now I hear that that is going to take another day versus delivering to my home.. There is a pretty large FedEx hub about an hour from here and that is where it currently says it is being delivered to. I told FedEx I don't really care where they are at, keep them there and I will come get them.

If I win, I will take some pics tonight or tomorrow a.m. with them on. :D

If I loose, well, let's just not think of that right now..

They are forking awesome! Hope you get them soon...

I also got the little Artillian dolly kit to wheel them around in my garage - they actually allow me to park the forks under the side of the tractor when the bucket is on.
(I put them on the left side, where I'll remember them as I get on the tractor!)

Just talked w/ FedEx, and I they are waiting for me to pick them up. :D

Now, just as long as I don't explode anything at the office tonight, I'll pick them up on the way home.

Pics to follow. :greentractorride:

Figured it was appropriate to add a sticker.

Matches the other.

I wipe excess with a shop towel. Trust me, they've been greased. :). It only has ~50 hours on the clock.

Wow, I've never seen cleaner zerk fittings in my life!

Reference pics #3&4
I know a guy, who may or may not be a member of this forum, that was cleaning brand new zerk fittings with a q-tip before greasing them on a brand new tractor. :drinks:

I would have bought Artillian's if they offered 48" forks at the time I bought my Frontier/Deere forks. I hear Artillian has 48" forks now.
