Details

The Automatic Pallet Forks effectively convert an overhead crane into an effective pallet mover. There are many applications where fork trucks cannot be operated due to a lack of floor space for example high rise developments. Our crane forks are equipped with adjustable forks, height adjustment and an automatic balancing sprung head along with pre-fitted restraint net frame (net supplied separately).

Operation

  • Operate overhead crane / HIAB into position directly over the crane forks.
  • Place the crane/HIAB hook onto the lifting eye of the attachment.
  • Slacken the thumbscrews to position the forks at the widest possible distance apart to suit the pallet.
  • Retighten thumb screws onto rail ensuring that they are adequately tightened and secure.
  • With the pallet forks slightly raised, manually re-position the Pallet Forks to enter the pallet with the handles provided on the rear of the frame.
  • Operate overhead crane / HIAB to enter the forks fully into the pallet.
  • Once fully inserted into the load, place the safety strap around the load & secure.
  • Lift the pallet clear of the ground and slide restraint net underneath. Attach to the six net hoops on the frame. Always use a restraint net when lifting overhead.
  • When positioned correctly & secured, the load is ready for movement.
