What wear is permissible on forks, and how is it measured?

Forks are safe for use until they reach 10% wear. This is measured at the 'heel,' next to the vertical section of the fork.

To minimise fork wear, ensure operators do not drag forks on the ground when moving the truck.

Beware of forklift truck hire companies who use 'fork replacement' as a means of generating revenue. At Bendigo Mitchell we will always talk you through any wear and show you the calibration reading, so you can have full peace of mind in our report.
