John Deere unveiled a nursery fork attachment for skid-steers and compact track loaders. The nursery fork is the latest addition to the Worksite Pro attachments lineup and is optimized to work with select John Deere E- and D-Series skid-steers, compact track loaders (CTLs) and most competitive models, the company said.

The nursery fork features a 3,000-lb. carrying capacity, a 54-in. fork opening, a 6-in. tread plate and an optional pressure-control kit that limits the arm-closing pressure. This attachment also can transport and position up to 44-in. balled or container trees and shrubs, along with rocks and light boulders.

“Like all Worksite Pro attachments, our new nursery fork was designed to optimize performance and productivity,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Whether you’re moving plants, trees, boulders or boxes, the nursery fork is an ideal tool to help contractors move materials quickly and easily.”

With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch easy attachment system, all John Deere skid-steers and CTLs can add and remove the nursery fork. The new attachment is also backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
