TECH TIP
Proper Use of OEM and Non-OEM Fork Mounted Attachments
Establishing a secure connection behind the heel of the fork is crucial for all fork mounted attachments. Using chains, straps or clamps to secure attachments directly to the forks, fork carriage, load bar and/or boom can inhibit the proper functionality of the attachment as well as create potentially unsafe conditions.

A few things to remember when using fork mounted attachments:
  • Attachments used on JLG Telehandlers whether OEM or Non-OEM should only be used on standard or side tilt carriages with appropriately sized pallet/lumber forks.
  • The forks of the JLG carriage must support 2/3 of the load length
  • How to calculate Equivalent Load:
Equivalent Load = ((Weight of attachment x CG distance of attachment1) + (Weight of attachment load x CG distance of load1)) / 24 inches. 1 – CG distance is measured horizontally from the front surface of the fork
  • When the load center of a combined attachment and/or load EXCEED 24 inches, use the amount of the calculated Equivalent Load with the carriage load chart
  • The horizontal center of gravity of the fork mounted attachment and the load (Equivalent Load) must be calculated to utilize the JLG load chart appropriately
  • The weight of the fork mounted attachment and the associated load should be combined to determine the total load being lifted by the forks
