Nice! I wish the one with the headache rack included the hitch receiver. (like you have on yours). To me the hitch receiver on the loader is a nice option to have.I just received mine a couple hours ago. Besides the crappy shipping. They fit like a glove. No paint scratches or weld splatter.
Haven't read a lot of favorable reviews of Titan equipment. Some seem satisfied, but most give their quality a thumbs down. The only titan attachment I've purchased was a JD universal mounting plate for 1 -5 series tractors. At the time I was building an 8' snow plow that used to be truck mounted for my 5075E. When it arrived I could tell I wasn't good steel, but needed to get the project done fast so I forged ahead. I can provide pics if you'd like but trust me when I say I had no business putting a heavy plow frame for a 75 hp tractor on a 1/4" mushy steel plate. Talk about being in between the irresistible force and the immovable object. I've bent, twisted, sheared that poor plate where I must have 100# of weld and scrap band-aids on this thing. Picture pushing the plow A-frame right through the plate. That plate shouldn't be used on anything past a 3E series IMO. That said, I may buy another one for my 1025R I'm doing the exact same thing with, only it's a used heavy UTV plow. It should handle that just fine. I'll send pics of the project if anyone's interested.Has anyone else had poor luck getting anything from Titan Industries?
I have to date ordered three attachments from Titan industries on three different occasions, quick hitch, heavy hitch and pallet forks. Two of the three were lost in shipment. Each time I called Titan, the customer service rep said I needed to call the carrier. So each time I called R&L Carriers and they said paperwork arrived but no shipment. Somebody has been helping themselves to tractor attachments. Eventually I received my merchandise after a couple reorders.
I guess bottom line is I don’t recommend ordering from Titan Industries until they change carriers.
Hopefully You all have better luck. Ok off my soap box now! Stay warm.

Either a upper rack or a trailer hitch receiver are very easy and inexpensive mods you can make on a set of forks.Nice! I wish the one with the headache rack included the hitch receiver. (like you have on yours). To me the hitch receiver on the loader is a nice option to have.
I found the front receiver hitch to be more cumbersome than useful. I thought it would be the cats meow for moving trailers.To me the hitch receiver on the loader is a nice option to have.

I suppose a hitch on the frame would be easy enough to do IF you had a welder and the associated tools to fab it, and the inclincation to do that. When I bought those Titan forks, I thought that that hitch receiver would solve all my trailer-moving problems. It absolutely doesn't. I wouldn't call it worthless, but I wouldn't call it particularly useful either. For one thing...it's hard to use if you have the forks mounted. They get in the way, and pretty much need to come off. That in itself tends to negate the usefulness IMHO. The biggest problem is the lever arm. The hitch is far enough toward the front of the tractor that maneuvering it takes a LOT of practice.A little spin of the steering wheel moves the front of the trailer a LOT left or right.Agree with the hitch being a PITA. Those forks are heavy to remove them just to move around a trailer. They do have some receiver hitches that slide onto your fork. That seems like a better option.
I'm curious about the shipping end of this.
They came with a single axle truck with a liftgate & a pallet dolley. He unloaded them & wheeled them right into my garage.I'm curious about the shipping end of this.
Did the delivery truck have a liftgate or did you have to use the tractor to unload them? (which sucks without pallet forks.....)
