    I don't have a bunch of money to spend. That's why I'm considering clamp on forks. Lol

    It's a 45hp 2 wheel drive, supposed to lift 2600 lbs. If by some miracle I can come up with $1500 for a real set, would you suggest 42 or 48" ?

    I have 42s, I wouldn’t go 48. Sometimes in tight areas I wished I bought 36s but have never wished for 48s. Save the clamp on money for now, I was lucky and caught them on sale. I got my money back out of them but they took a long to sell.

    You know I said if by some miracle I got $1500, I would buy the real set. Yesterday when my wife got home from work I told her she had some mail from the hospital. (She had a major spine surgery in June and we have paid them a lot of money). She said it better not be another bill. She told me to open it. I started reading it and it said they charged us too much money and enclosed was a refund check for $1500. She said, there you go, go buy your forks. I'm going to call and order them today.

    Well there you go! Problem solved. You will be way happier in the long run with the dedicated forks.


    Seems like if you really need something it just works out! If you really want something and you never seem to catch a break, you don't need it. At least that's how it always happens with me!:)

    I will have to say I have a great wife. I ordered the forks. About 4 weeks to make them. They are being made by a company called WR Long. It's right here in NC about 4 hours away.

    Good call on the 42"s. Not to show off, but I have a set of each and definitely prefer the 42". They're less likely to cause problems while trying to maneuver the tractor in the woods, and when you're handling logs, generally you'll scoop the log, tip the forks back to roll the log back against the carriage (I try to get the loader down onto the ground for that part, so the shock gets absorbed there instead of into the tractor), drive where you're going, then when you unload, you have to get the log off the end of the forks. The longer the forks, the faster it's gonna be rolling or sliding by the time it gets off.

    Okay, I guess I'll show off a little bit. Here's my kubota with both sets in action. I welded 3 point pins onto one set, so I can use it on the back. Works great. I wouldn't have bought the second set, but a woman had them on Craigslist for $150. I offered her that and some syrup and veggies. She ended up just wanting $150 worth of produce, so I would have been an idiot not to go get them. IMG_20190507_145152.jpg

    Nice setup. I thought about getting a 3 point set because they were a lot cheaper but my back and neck can't take all that twisting and turning and I would have had to bought a hydraulic top link to be able to tilt them.

    Thanks. I'm extremely lucky to have bought that stuff when I did. I listened to a lot of guys your age and older who had wrecked backs from years of hard work and wished they'd bought a loader tractor earlier. My dad grew veggies with 8Ns for 40 years before we bought this kubota. Funny thing was when we were shopping he was not convinced about the loader. "do you really need it??". Yeah, dad, we REALLY need it.

    I grew up with 8Ns as well. No loaders back then. You were lucky if the brakes even worked.

    I use them. Small John Deere. My buddy uses them on his big tractor. Best Buy on the market I’ve found.

    I have them on a small JD. Mine are the straight clamp ons. Easy on and off. Good for brush and a host of other things.
