People have asked what would the 24" forks be useful for. The better question is, on a utility tractor, what can't they be used for? They don't work so well for a fully loaded, evenly distributed pallet. And they won't carry as large of a brush pile. But other than that, they are the handiest suckers around and almost always on my own machine. Here's a quick video demonstration.

Got to say I love the landscape forks. I use the 42" forks when I need to move pallets and large amounts of brush, but otherwise the landscape forks stay on my 2520 - I even prefer these to the bucket most of the time! Recently I used them to pry up some sidewalk that needed to be replaced and to remove a 10" diameter stump. Awesome forks and I couldn't imagine not having them!

They are my primary tool as well. More torque at the tips. Good for digging things out and lifting rocks. Latest victory:

Note: nature did most of the work here by blowing the tree over onto it's neighbor, but the forks finished the job easily.

And I am rebuilding a rock retaining wall:

The landscaping tines sure make moving big stuff fun! They are even good for removing small tree stumps.

Well put guys.

Another thing I really like about these tines is how much easier they are for maneuvering and just plain walking around. I never would have imagined such a difference.
