When looking at pallet forks, there is more than meets the eye. Below are a few things to watch for.
- Any Blue Diamond pallet forks 4000 lbs. and over use a machined, one piece, carriage bar. Many of our competitors use a fabricated bar (two pieces welded together) or a bent U channel that simply don’t hold up.
- Blue Diamond Attachments run a .04 % fork tine breakage. This is largely from using high quality fork tines and using a much heavier fork tine than is required. For example: most competitors 4000 lbs. rated pallet forks, use a tine that is 1.25″ thick where Blue Diamond uses a 1.5″ tine that is actually rated for 5400 lbs. Needless to say, fork tine breakage is very rare!!
- Roll back and door clearance issues. Blue Diamond constantly monitors new machines for door clearance and roll back issues and adjusts design if needed.
- Side steps: many of our competitors use one step and or they bolt them on. Blue Diamond uses 2 steps and we weld them on so they do not come loose and get lost.
