John Deere Adds Severe-Duty PF45 and PF60 Pallet Forks to Attachment Lineup
The new severe-duty pallet forks offer improved visibility, increased capacity and better durability than the previous fork-frame design.
If you're in the market for some heavy lifting severe-duty pallet forks, throw John Deere's newest models, the PF45 and PF60
, into the ring. The PF45 and PF60 are compatible with John Deere G-Series skid steers as well as G- and E-Series compact track loaders, along with another pallet fork that was specifically designed for use on K-Series compact wheel loaders with the skid steer-style Quik-Tatch coupler. The new pallet forks are also compatible with most competitive models.
The PF45 and PF60 severe-duty pallet forks 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.
The new fork frame was designed for use on compact wheel loaders with a parallel lift and offers improved visibility, increased capacity and better durability over the previous fork-frame design. The tines are ITA class 3B rated and available in either 1.22 m (48 inches) or 1.52 m (60 inches).
When equipped with the universal Quik-Tatch easy attachment system, found on all John Deere skid steers and compact track loaders, the machine can easily attach and remove the severe-duty pallet forks in seconds.
The new forks are backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
