"I purchased the Aluminum forks because I did not want to deal with an extra 50 Lbs. when I install them on the bucket. These aluminum forks will handle the same amount of material as the steel ones. So far they seem quite stable when I am using them. To be on the safe side I did recently order the stabilizer bar. So far I am very happy with these aluminum forks."

"Being a female these were easy for me to move and attatch to the tractor bucket. These came in handy moving logs and brush. Seem to work as well as steel ones would for what I needed."

"They delivered so quick! We had storm damage among several trees and I did 4 hours work in less than an hour with these forks...I carried complete trees to the burn pile with these things and I do not understand why I didn't buy them 20 years ago right after I got my tractor/front end loader...they are great work savers!"

Bucket forks awesome!

"I bought these forks to move palletized product around on the farm. Our Bobcat CT 230 CUT doesn't have the quick attach option, so I went against most of the recommendations and got the loader mounted forks. I got these over the steel ones because my loader is only rated for ~800 lb, and I wanted to be moving cargo, not an extra 40 lb of steel forks. We got in 4 pallets of grapes that went about 600 lb apiece, and the fork/loader combo did great. I hang a 3 pt tiller on the back as counterweight whenever toting heavy loader loads, and always keep it low "just in case".
My biggest concern was loader lip deformation, since the loader lip is not heavily reinforced. I took a 2" ratchet tie down and hooked the short end with the ratchet to the top eye on each fork, wrapped the standing part around the loader bucket, hooked the standing hook to the fork frame in front of the tightening handle, and tightened her up. Just the slightest bit if side to side movement, no lip bending and the forks also didn't bend. However, it did bend the eye on the top of both forks. Recommend that the vendor strengthen those attachment points.
Strongly recommended.
