TKG-VHS 'Self Weight' Balance Crane Forks

200 - 5000kg

Crane forks with self weight balancing

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

  • The TKG-VHS range of crane forks are equipped with adjustable tines, adjustable mast height and a self weight balancing system. Crane forks with self weight balancing* tend to point their tines upwards when being transported, this prevents the load from unintentionally slipping off the tines.
*NB: The automatic balancing system requires a minimum load of 20% of the crane forks working load limit.

The self weight balancing mechanism returns the lifting point to the unloaded position when the load is set down. For efficient operation of this mechanism the load must be greater than 20% of the working load limit.
  • Factor of safety 4 : 1
  • Maintenence free.
  • Highly visible safety colour.
  • For transporting rings or coils, simply push fork tines together
  • Easily adjustable tines for all pallet sizes.
  • Supplied with chain for securing the load.
