Frequently Asked Questions
1) How do I measure a fork on my forklift?
First you need to determine the size of your carriage.
This is dimension A on the image to the right->
- Class 2 = 16 inches from top to bottom of carriage
- Class 3 = 20 inches from top to bottom of carriage
- Class 4 = 25 inches from top to bottom of carriage
Next, there are 3 key dimensions for each fork
- To determine length, measure from the front of the fork to the end of the tip.
- To determine width, measure from side to side of the fork you need
- Next, measure the thickness on the back side of theforklift fork
If you measure thickness at the bottom of the fork, you risk ordering the wrong fork since the bottom will be worn.
Finally, determine the capacity of the forklift that you are going to install the forks on. The capacity can be found on the data tag, located on or near the dashboard of the forklift. Each set of forks has a rated capacity. This capacity includes a safety factor but should be used as the maximum lifting capacity for a set of 2 forks. Also, each of our forks are stamped with this information on the side of each fork.
