Heavy Duty Sleeve Forks

Odoo • Image and Text

SLEEVE FORKS  are heavy duty load handlers that can lift non uniform loads with adequate capacity to prevent bending.  They were developed for use in Europe where trucks are side loaded at ground level due to the lack of loading dock facilities. 

SLEEVE FORKS are installed on the forklift by driving into the Sleeve.  They are secured to the fork heel by locking pins. Tips are tapered to assist entry.

Heavy duty SLEEVE FORKS are often an economical alternative to extra long fork blades.  The forklift can be used for general cargo as well as cumbersome, hard to handle products  by installing and removing Fork Sleeves.

Stock sizes range up to 10 feet long for up to 2-1/2" thick x 6 inch wide forks.  We have produced custom sizes up to 100,000 LB capacity and  16 feet long.
