Actually....I bought just the main frame as I already had the forks and associated cross members. But I must say,it is a work of art. Beautiful welds and precision cutting to the extreme:thumbup1gif:.....I hated to weld on it as I was afraid I'd mess it up. But I did,and whew,I didnt. I tested them to the 200cx's extreme at about 1100 lbs, but it did it:good2: Thanks Chris for making such a great product! It is truly uplifting to see american made quality once again! I'll sing your praises every chance I get! ....and will be buying from you again. (next time ,I'll know where the code is on the back of the card )

Sorry guys....just wanted to set the record straight. The unit I was lifting stated on the packing slip that it weighed 1080 lbs. That included the 1x6's on the top and 2x's on bottom for protection. Unit by itself weighed 955lbs. Still happy the 200cx can lift these units as I install'em fairly often. (I was worried I bought too small of tractor)

same, same

I recieved mine sometime in late august...They sure are handy. And he is a heck of a good person to deal with over the phone. Rumor has it, that he is working on a 21 " pair of forks for digging and stumping. Thanks for forks, worth every penny! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Hi Everyone,

RGD, I'm really sorry that I missed this thread when you first posted it. I just happened across it by accident. My loss. I'm delighted that you were happy with the workmanship and took the time to share it here. Thanks much.

DavGreg, the short forks are no longer a rumor. They are now a reality! I'm looking forward to using a pair to build a native fieldstone retaining wall this spring. Some of the stones are the size of bean bag chairs and the only other possible way to raise and set them would be with a sling. With the short forks I'll be able to pick and place them while yawning. Can't wait.
