So we have a set of Frontier AP12F pallet forks and also a BB2072 box blade. My uncle has a Frontier RC2072 bush hog and a RT3062 tiller. I am wondering who makes these attachments. I suspect the RC2072 is made by Woods but I’m not sure on any of them. Any help is appreciated

There are a number of companies manufacturing Frontier implements. Frontier is a company who decides on the manufacturers and products Deere includes in the Frontier line. Once they have been chosen as a Frontier product they wear the green and are then only available from a Deere dealer. All parts and service are through the Deere dealer network. However, the implements are all chosen, tested, and even modified to meet Deere requirements and standards. I have a number of Frontier implements and will swear by every one of them.

You may be correct as Woods is a large provider of Frontier re-branded implements.

Ok thanks. I think I remember hearing that Frontier implements are sourced from over 30 different companies

I will second all of that. There are a number of makers that Deere uses for Frontier implements, and they certainly can be modified. I got a new RB2284 blade and a little paper "inspected by" sticker on the blade listed the manufacturer, which was "Tecnomec Agricolas," and upon further investigation they are a Mexican firm that sells their own products under the "Bison" brand. I looked at their website and after deciphering both metric and Spanish, found that the closest model is the NB80-210 but there are some significant changes to the turntable and the Frontier version is only available with optional hydraulic offset vs. optional hydraulic offset/angle/tilt as it lacks the cylinder mounts for those other adjustments. It is a very nice blade that is more than stout enough to handle being behind my 5075E.
