FORK EXTENSIONS: THINGS TO CONSIDER!
Will they fit my forklift forks? You’ll need to make sure the fork extensions are the correct size to slip over your truck forks. If they are too narrow, they won’t fit properly, and if they are too wide, they could rattle too much (or come loose). To ensure the best fit, we recommend measuring the width of your fork and the thickness of your fork (the thickness point being measured at the heel) and then match this against the dimensions of the fork extensions.
Are they the legal length to suit my forks? The fork extension length should not exceed the fork length by more than 60% (max fork extension length = fork length/0.6). If you require fork extensions longer than what your forks allow, then a longer pair of forks should be considered to achieve the desired fork/fork extension combination.
Do they have removeable heel pins? Fork extensions that have removeable heel pins enable the forks of the truck to be driven into the extensions, whilst lying on the floor. This removes the need to manually lift the extensions into place.
Are they certified? By law, forklift extensions must be certified in the same as every other forklift attachment. You will receive certification with the product on delivery.
