Load-Quip Heavy-Duty Steel Bucket Forks - 5500-Lb.

July 8, 2015
from WV
Excellent set of forks. Used them this weekend for the first time on a JD 410 backhoe to unload two pallets of retaining wall block weighing approximately 3,200 lbs each from a 7 X 12 dump trailer. Before purchasing (since there were no reviews on the 5500 lb bucket forks) read the reviews for the 1400 and 2600 lb bucket forks and noted comments that their forks moved on the bucket and recommended buying the stabilizer bar. Maybe it is just because the 5500 lb forks are more heavy duty but my forks didn't move an inch while unloading the pallets. Backhoe bucket is too wide for the trailer and pallets where loaded several feet into the trailer bed for proper weight distribution so we even slid the forks partially under the pallet, lifted slightly, and slid the pallet to the back edge of the trailer and the forks never moved. Would highly recommend this set of bucket forks. The only drawback is that they are a little heavy to handle with just one person to get attached to the bucket.
