    what is a standard forklift fork dimension?

    I need to design a little test stand and i was going to make the base of rectangle tube.

    Google "replacement forklift forks" and you'll find various sizes. Such as:

    Most common would be 4,000 lb capacity forklift which typically come with class 2 carriages and 1.5" x 4" x 42" long forks.

    Little orange avatar has 4" x 1.5" x 42" as Milacron suggested.

    I run 2" x 6" x 60" on my larger forklift.

    haha i know where your going OX.

    if someone asked me "what size pneumatic tire usually comes on a full size sedan" likely I would say 225r65 or so is real common.

    What I can tell you is don't give only 1/4" on a side clearance.

    ....more like 1" on a side.

    That will look precision from the driver's seat! And...you'll still have full control of the object in question as long as the fork pocket is "full-boxed"....best ones are "tapered" and boxed.

    MS, I guess you've been reading a "How to sneak in free advertising" book recently where they told you to participate in forums ? Do you really think there is anyone here so stupid as to think someone with their very first post is going to be posting "Hey I was looking for the same info...blah, blah" ?
