Ah, the eternally burning question: Are 1150mm forks suitable for EPAL pallet operations?
Of course, as a forklift driver or warehouse manager, this is 𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗱’𝘀 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂. You, the seasoned professional, obviously know that these forks are “suitable.” After all, on the short side of the pallet you stick them all the way in and on the long side … well, then 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗮 𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗹𝗲.
