John Deere has added severe-duty pallet forks to its lineup of Worksite Pro attachments. The PF45 and PF60 are optimized to work with the John Deere G-Series skid steers as well as G- and E-Series compact track loaders (CTLs). They are also compatible with most competitive models.
The severe-duty pallet forks for skid steers and CTLs are available in lengths of 48 and 60 inches, and they can be positioned in widths from 45 inches in 5-inch increments to 60 inches in 5.35-inch increments. They feature a walk-through backrest with a bolt-on option and unrestricted visibility to the fork tips. Skid-resistant steps on both sides of the pallet fork frame also ease vehicle entrance and exit.
With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers and CTLs, the machine can easily add and remove the severe-duty pallet forks in seconds. The attachment is also backed by John Deere parts, service, and warranty coverage.
The new fork frame, which was designed for use on compact wheel loaders, offers improved visibility, increased capacity, and better durability over the previous fork-frame design. It was specifically designed for use on a compact wheel loader with a parallel lift, and it will enable operators to load the far side of a trailer with ease. The tines are ITA class 3B rated and available in either 1.22 m (48 inches) or 1.52 m (60 inches).
