Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments, and we're here today with our new lineup of pallet forks. This is gonna be for the larger compact tractors. We have a smaller set of forks rated up to 2,200 pounds, and this set of forks uses the same frame, basically, but we're gonna rate this up to 3,000 pounds. We've used heavier tubes and different steel that were heavier than the compact forks we were selling that were rated at 1,800 pounds. These forks are actually 4,400-pound forks, that would be the same fork that goes on a Skid Steer frame, or a large tractor frame, but we're gonna use these heavy forks for the...
Some of the compacts are getting up to 65 horsepower and are weighing in, with field tires and a loader on it, at 7,500 plus pounds. So, we're gonna rate these at a 3,000-pound lifting capacity at 20 inches from the bend. Even though the fork will hold more, the frame is designed for 3,000 pounds. So we've kept the frame short, we've kept it as light as we could on the frame but, the bad thing is, the reason you wouldn't want to use these on a small compact is these are a full-size fork and they're simply heavier. These forks, this frame with these forks, are gonna weigh in at about 335 pounds. We like to give you as much lift capacity as possible, but it simply takes a bigger, heavier fork than our 220-pound set of compact forks.
Even though these would fit a Skid Steer, because this is a standard Bob Tach hookup, I don't recommend them to go on a Skid Steer just because the frame is not that heavy and, if you use the lifting load of the forks, you're gonna be too heavy for this frame. So, this frame's for 3,000 pounds, uses the standard Skid Steer hookup, and has a good viewing area where you can see your load to look through when you're loading things on trucks, or unloading, to be able to pick them up easy.
We're really glad at Everything Attachments to make these in-house now instead of getting them from another supplier that was in South Korea. We did brand them as a house brand of Everything Attachments, but now we've brought everything back in-house and want to keep everything made in the U.S. We've never had any complaints about the Ansung forks, but the edge back here, this pocket is not a square pocket, it has a bevel at the top. So, we've beveled this back edge here to make them easier to slide and that'll help you in the field a lot, once you get out there.
So, as you can see, there's a notch cut directly in the middle of the front, and there's no notch here to lock the forks in, and that's where you're gonna remove the fork from. You're gonna pull the fork up in the front, it'll come out of that groove, then just lift if off the top rail. So, make sure you never use your fork directly in the middle, because you're not gonna have a locking area. These do have the standard Skid Steer flip pins with a half-inch pin, so they do lock in place. This is real similar to another one that we had, so we know it's a proven design. We are gonna have a lighter set of pallet forks with a 2,200-pound capacity for the smaller compacts, and that'll give you more lifting capacity because the forks are only an inch thick and three inches wide, instead of an inch and three-eighths thick and four inches wide. So, you're gaining a lot of weight here, but that's what's needed for some of these mega-compacts to be able to lift all that they can lift.
Give us a call or an email, we'll be happy to help you at Everything Attachments.
