PIN TYPE FORKS
Pin Type Forks
Generally used on forklifts with over 15,000lbs Capacity, Telehandlers, and Wheel Loaders, but often found in other applications like aftermarket fork positioners. Pin Type Forks mount to the carriage using a high strength steel "pin" across the top of the carriage. There is no "standard" for the pin diameter, back height, or pin offset. Each set of Pin Type Forks is a custom fabrication.
All our forks are forged, shot-blasted, machined back, sides and tapers and are guaranteed to be level at the tips within ISO standards. All Fork-Co smaller (15,000lb or less) Forks are high yield heat treated alloy steel, ASTM 4140 or 4340. Our larger Forks are 15B37 high yield steel. All our forks undergo individual magnetic powder crack checking.
We keep Fork Blanks in stock for Pin Type applications up to 110,000lb capacity at 48" LC. Larger units are available with a minor lead time.
