I just received my Artillian Forks last week. I would highly recommend them. They are a quality US manufactured product. Kinda like we used to make here all the time.Have a 4000 series loader and was wanting to get some pallet forks. Anyone have any experience with Titan brand or Artillian? Also saw some attachments from AIM. Any knowledge on them?
Thanks for the reply. Wasn't sure if I wanted to get 42" or 48"I have the Titan forks too, with 48" tines and bale spears. They work great on my 4105.
Artillian makes a great fork set too that is lighter than the Titan's, but I didn't need a significant weight savings so I went with the Titans due to cost. Worked out great for me.
seemed most of the reviews on GTT were several years old. When I looked on Amazon they had recent reviews and nearly all of them were great for the Titan.My suggestion would be to do a Google search for both companies you're considering.
There are several reviews of both Artillian and Titan right here on GTT, I can't link them right now but they make for good reading.
Very well put 636mullet. :good2:It's not as much a quality issue as to why I bought Artillian forks as it is that Artillian is an American company, the little guy even. Having a JD is a little about just having the Green and Yellow paint. Having Artillian forks is about the little Made in the USA sticker and what it stands for. When I read the "About Us" tab on the Titan website it made me sad. I get that not everything is going to be Made in the USA but when given the choice I spend the extra :gizmo:. From what I gather on this website from the members and their stories I have a feeling more of us would be out of work than counting our stock options if our place of business outsourced over seas. I'm not trying to guilt anyone into something they can't afford. Just throwing this out there. In Iowa you can go to just about any town and see a large empty building that used to be what people did for work. Many towns are even dying because of it. I personally moved to the city for work. I'm not looking for an argument or anything, but I've not lost any sleep over spending a little extra cash for that little Made in the USA sticker. :thumbup1gif:
I assure you I have no connection with Titan. I also asked about AIM attachments. I believe they are manufactured in Colombus, OH. They look very heavily made. Anyone have any knowledge about AIM?Folks, this thread is most likely a fake post to surreptitiously prop up the Titan/ATVExpress/SkidSteerExpress/Etc reputation. This is the kind of slithering to be expected from them.
Titan is as lowlife an enterprise as can be conceived. They have no scruples whatsoever. They copy the designs of real companies and send them off to China for duplication, even in the face of being presented with patent infringement lawsuits. There are plenty of other brands operating legitimately which are far more deserving of consideration, eg, Horst, Worksaver, EverythingAttachments, etc.
It's almost impossible to avoid buying imported products in the US these days, but a company like this is especially disgusting because they go out of their way to import as much as possible as cheaply as possible with little overhead to leave plenty of margin for lots of advertising expenses.
Anyone who sends their money to this company, or others like it, needs to think about the soundness of their own intellect as a conscientious American citizen.

Have a nice day.
