    Whatever you do, don't buy pallidin(sp?) forks. They are cheap and the frame is junk. Buy a set from bradco. Bobcat has nice ones too. I'm sure the cat forks above are nice as well. Can't go wrong with cat stuff.

    Well, i really dont care who they come from- as long as they are rated for around 4000 or more. It seems that most of the average priced ones are rated for 4000 lbs.

    I do concrete. I have plans to buy a machine this week, but it only comes with a bucket. Ill need forks by spring, but the sooner the better so i can check it off my list.

    MWS- If you could post a picture, that'd be awesome! The only thing is you're 5 hours from me. Would this be able to be put on a pallet and send through freight?

    We bought a set of pallidins that were rated for something like 4600lbs and they broke the first time we used them for cement. We got them fixed and tried them again and had the same problem. Now they sit in the weeds awaiting scrap prices to go back up. Bought a set of bradco's and never looked back. Just my .02

    I was looking for a 773. I even made a post in here asking if anyone had one for sale.

    Im going tomorrow to look at a S185. If all goes well, ill be handing over the money for it.

    If something does not work out, ill connect with you. Just curious, is it a turbo model?
