Do you need a FORK EXTENSIONS when handling longer loads?

Fork Extensions are used to compliment a fork that is lifting a load that is longer than the fork. Extensions are designed for uniform loading; they should never be tip loaded. The length of the extension must not be more than 1.5 times the length of the fork blade. Stated another way the underlying fork must be at least 2/3rds the length of the extensions.

Features:

  • Fork extensions are available to fit 4”, 5”, 6”, and 7” wide forks.
  • Fork extensions for the above widths can be acquired up to 96” long
  • Fork extensions are built in compliance with ANSI/ITSDF standard, B56.1
