Invicta - IPF-BOS-10-20 - Adjustable Pallet Forks (1000 ) - 2000kg


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).


STANDARD FEATURES

  • Spring loaded self-balancing head.
  • Safety Net Frame
  • Adjustable Height – Clear Height 1200-1900mm
  • Adjustable Fork Widths
  • Convenient Hand Holds.
  • Painted bright orange for safety


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.


MAINTENANCE

  • The Pallet Forks should be inspected weekly for general condition with attention paid to: A – All weld points, B – Wear & distortion of thumb screws, C – Any damaged components, D – Lock & latches, E – Pivot points
  • All bolts must be checked for tightness.
  • The pivot bars must be kept greased.
  • The spring should be oiled.
  • Check the restraint net for damage and replace if worn.
  • Damage or failure must be reported and rectified immediately prior to re-use of Pallet Forks.
  • General surface rusting especially in the critical areas should be treated with proprietary inhibitors, primers and paint on a regular basis.
  • This product is certified for six (6) months from the date of manufacture after which it is the customer’s responsibility to have the product re-tested at an approved testing facility or inspected and logged in a register by a competent person as advised by the HSE.


HEALTH & SAFETY

  • The manager of the department or section where the attachment is to be used must be responsible for ensuring the operators are fully conversant with the attachment, its operation & maintenance.
  • Ensure both the crane and attachment can handle the intended load and its contents.
  • Operators must keep clear of the mechanism whilst in operation.
  • Do not shock load the attachment under any circumstance.
  • In the event of failure during operation do not attempt rectification or re-operation while the attachment is off the ground. The attachment must be returned safely to floor level for inspection.
  • Never drive at the product at an excessive speed as this may result in injury to the driver and/or damage to the attachment and Fork Lift Truck.
  • Keep hands away from all moving parts.
