Our raw materials are rigorously selected to ensure product quality and compliance with the highest safety standards for our customers’ operations. We use the following steels to manufacture our forks:

– Carbon steel (ASTM 1018, ASTM 1026, ASTM 1045, etc.)

Every fork is inspected as part of our well-defined and certified quality control processes.


We maintain a supply of fork blanks suitable for Bolt-On type applications with a capacity of up to 110,000 lb. Larger units are also available, although they may require a slightly longer lead time.

What is a BOLT-ON Fork ?

Bolt-on forks, as the name suggests, are forklift forks that can be easily attached or detached from the forklift carriage by using bolts. Unlike traditional forks that are permanently integrated with the forklift, bolt-on forks offer the advantage of flexibility and interchangeability. These forks typically feature a flat plate with pre-drilled holes that align with the mounting holes on the forklift carriage, allowing for easy installation and removal as needed.

Why getting a BOLT-ON fork?

  • One of the key advantages of bolt-on forks is their reduced deflection in the upright of the fork. By bolting the fork all the way up the upright, the design minimizes the amount of deflection, which can improve the overall stability and safety of the forklift.
  • Another benefit of BoltonForks is improved efficiency. The versatile design allows for quick and easy handling of a wide range of materials and loads, reducing the time and effort required to move heavy items. This can help to increase productivity and reduce labor costs, making BoltonForks an excellent investment for any business.
