Forklift Fork Inspections are Critical to Your Business
Your forklift forks are one of the most vital components to ensure maximum efficiency, load safety, and overall productivity.
If your forks present obvious damage, it is important that they are pulled from production and immediately addressed before being placed back into operation.
Signs of wear and tear on your forks will include the following:
• Surface cracks
• Blade or shank is crooked
• The difference in height of fork tips
• Positioning lock not in working order
• Fork blade or shank wear
• Damage to the fork hooks
• Unable to read fork marking
Just a 10% reduction in blade thickness can cause a 20% loss in capacity and safety risks to your employees.
Frequent and continuous inspections on your forklifts are important to the overall operations, safety, and compliance of your business.
