    Default Source of Class 5 forklift forks ??

    Seems that every fork seller stops at Class 4......but I really need 5...standard hook type (as opposed to the round bar type) They must exist somewhere since the carriage is definitely class 5 and has forks on it now but they are too short in length.

    Understanding Forklift Forks

    According to this Class 4 is as high as they go. After that it's proprietary to the mfr.


    The most common of fork is the ITA style which are divided up into classes. These classes define the carriage height that they can mount to.

    Class 2 = 16" Carriage height
    Class 3 = 20" Carriage height
    Class 4 = 25" Carriage height

    Typically any forklift from 1500-5500 lbs. will have Class 2 forks. 6000-11,000 lbs capacity lifts will be Class 3. 11,500-17,500 lbs capacity forklifts will be Class 4. After that, most forklifts use a shaft mount or propriety mount.

    We buy all our forks from these people- Forklift Forks & Attachments - Buckets, Booms, Grapples - Arrow MHP

    They can make you anything you want, and are reasonably priced.

    They may not guarantee a class 5 setup though. When you get past the capacity of a class 4, you start getting into the design limitations of the "hook" type setup.

    Another vote for Cascade.
    I have used a lot of their products in the past.
