I'm now debating on what to buy for pallet forks. Are you still pleased with going 36" rather than 42" or 48"? You can always purchase the 60" extensions which should be stout enough for anything you'll be lifting with your Deere. I also need a FEL hitch receiver, so I've been looking at that Titan model, but for the skid-steer attach version (I've got a Mahindra 2540). Have you used the hitch to move any serious weight trailers? If so, what kind of weight (tongue and trailer) have you moved? I need something pretty stout -- Titan says your model has a 600 tongue and 6000 trailer capacity, but I'm guessing at low speeds and flat surfaces considerably higher weights could be safely moved.

My son and I built a pallet fork frame for my wife's 3038. It has 42" forks. They are nice. As far as storage, if they are off of the tractor, they are stored outside. If you leave them on, you can tilt them down and they don't take up any more horizontal space than shorter forks. A lot of the time, we have a pallet setting in front of where the tractor is shedded and just stick the forks in the pallet. You do pick the back wheels of the ground more often with the longer forks than I suspect you would with shorter forks.
sideskraft, thanks for watching and the questions! We have been very pleased with the 36". I debated long and hard about going with one of the longer options but ultimately was concerned with maneuvering around the shed with the extra length and so far I have appreciated the short length and they still have done everything we needed them to do. As for the receiver, I have been pretty cautious. Only moved our small utility trailer (under 2k pounds). We do have a midsize travel trailer that weighs about 5k that I am going to try and move with the loader this Spring but am a little nervous. I'm sure it will be fine! Keep me posted on what you decide.

Glad I watched this. I was considering going with the 42" but looking at them it seems like the 36" would work for me.. currently we only have a little 1025R anyway.
