 430 FEL Pallet Forks

I'm interested in getting a set of pallet forks for my 4310 w/ 430 Loader. I talked to the dealer about it, and he quoted me $950 for a set. That seems quite high to me. Anybody out there have a reference price for me? Also, if you have a set of these forks, how useful are they?

I use mine as much as I use the bucket. It is the most useful tool on the tractor.

Mine came from Rankin and cost $600 on the Left coast.

If you're moving real heavy stuff on pallets 3ph forks will have more capacity and the expense of lift height. Something to consider if you're moving heavy landscape materials (like masonry blocks) around.

Funny you should ask....

I spoke to Mike Yearout at Rankin about iMatch forks and he said "no problem". They charged an extra $30 to make a custom set for me, which I ordered through my dealer. When they arrived they didn't fit, and it was obvious they never even tried them. The pin spacing was correct, but frame brackets on the forks prevented the iMatch cams from swiveling out and into position. Rankin was darned unresponsive about it - in fact they repeatedly told the dealer they would call me about it and they never did. Not very impressive.

Anyway, the dealer spoke to Rears manufacturing and they supposedly have redesigned their rear forks to work with iMatch and they SHOULD arrive at the dealer this week. They are swapping the Rankin forks I already bought for the Rears forks when they arrive.

So, I don't yet know if they will really be iMatch compatible but I'll keep you posted.

 430 FEL Pallet Forks

I have a 4310 fel with pallet forks,the ones that john deere
makes or has made for them and i like DRankin i've found that i use the forks as much or more than the bucket.i've
now gone out and got some wooden pallets just to have around
to put stuff on and other worthless things on so i can move
them around quicker. their use is almost endless, just the other day i got a call from a neighbor that needed a floating dock (10'x36') lifted off of a 45' trailer, we
picked up one end of it while the truck driver drove forward
until it was almost off of the trailer than went around to the other end and lifted it up from the side as the trailer
clear the dock. hell,they were on the phone trying to rent
a crane! i paid about 850.00 for them but it was all rolled together
with the tractor,fel,lx5 and rear blade.

headhog -- Do the forks go in in place of the bucket, or do they attach to the bucket?

Not sure what kind headhog has, but they make both kinds. The type that clamps on the bucket are the inexpensive choice, but they are limited in their weight carrying capability because heavy loads will deflect the bucket and because the weight is extended further forward. The other kind replaces the bucket. Clamp-ons can probably only lift 5-600 lbs. I was quoted around $300 for a set of clamp-ons and bucket replacement forks were from $700-$900 depending on brand. FWIW, my 3ph forks were ~$350.

Think carefully about what you will actually USE the forks for. I was considering a set but in the end went with a $70 3-pt carry-all which was rated to 2000lbs at the far tip of each "fork". It carries pallets just fine (can slide the forks in under the pallet too) and was very friendly to the wallet. If you are just going to lift an move stuff then the carry-all will probably work. If you need to stack pallets one atop the other you may NEED the forks.

AnnBrush, I'm curious about your carry all. What brand is it? I have a carry all that is rated for 4000 lbs, but it would never slide more than a few inches into a pallet due to lateral bracing.
