To prevent pallet damage and/or to support the load you can decide to equip your hydraulic extendable forks with palletstops. Depending on your specific needs, there are four different types of palletstops available.
Mainly on mountable forklift trucks
Y1 palletstops are intended to stop the telescopic forks protruding too far through the pallet, thus preventing pallet damage. Depending on the application, Y1 palletstops can be welded on the inner and outer side, inner side only or outer side only. The height of the Y1 palletstops is 75 mm.
Mainly for one-sided loading and double-deep stacking
Y2 Palletstops serve the same purpose as Y1 and can also be used to support a separate load back rest. Y2 Palletstops are available with heights of 200 mm and 400 mm. The minimum distance between the forkback and the palletstop is 25 mm.
Mainly for one-sided loading- and unloading
Y3 Palletstops support the load without the use of a separate load back rest. The standard height of the Y3 Palletstops is 850 mm and can go up to 1600 mm.
DEMOUNTABLE Y2 PALLETSTOPS
The demountable Y2 palletstop is ideal for companies that use the KOOI-FORKS for dual pallet handling and for double deep stacking. The minimum distance between palletstop and fork back needs to be 170 mm.
A welding tube on the fork back will reduce the length in case the customer want to use the KOOI-REACHFORKS® for extensions. The welded palletstop will prevent that the fork protrudes too far through the pallet, thus preventing pallet damage.
