Manual Side Access Wheel Fixture
Same as our Hydraulic Side Access Wheelset Handling Fixture, only manually operated.
The fixture fits over the forklift tines with a safety chain that hooks over the forklift mast to keep the fixture in place during wheel handling.
Our hydraulically operated wheel handling system quickly and safely loads or unloads wheelsets from flat cars or trucks. It features a spring-loaded automatic wheel gripping device that also provides a fail-safe lock in case of hydraulic hose or fitting failure. A safety chain is included to provide secure fastening to the forklift mast. A forklift having a two stage mast, and one auxliary hydraulic control valve to operate one double acting cylinder is required to disengage the auto lock .
Fork Pockets have removable spacers for larger fork diameters
up to 6″ wide x 2-3/4″ thick.
