HS Sales provide Western Australia's most complete range of locally manufactured fork arms. This ensures customers have access to immediate supply of standards forks and fast turn around times on special/custom fork sizes.

Before ordering tynes, you will need to know which forks you require. The diagram above will assist you with your tyne choice. Please note, this will only cover ITA Mount forks for a forklift. If you are after telehandler or loader forks, please give us a call.

 

Step 1: Carriage Size.

Firstly you will need to determine the size of your carriage to work out which class of tynes you require. Tynes are classified as ITA Mount (Class II, Class III or Class IV), Pin Type or Square Type depending on the size of the forklift carriage to which they attach. This is measurement “A” on the diagram above.

Step 2: Tyne dimensions.

Measure blade length:  Record from the front face of the fork shank, all the way to the end of the tip.

Next is the fork section size (Width x Thickness) 

Measurements are to be taken from the from the centre of the blade or the fork shank.

Please do not take these measurements from the heel or the tip as they may be worn.
 

Unsure if your forks are worn?

Step 3: Capacity of the Forklift

Look on or near the dashboard of the forklift and find the data tag. This will tell you the forklift capacity.
Each set of forks has a rated capacity. This is the maximum lifting capacity for a set of 2 forks. Scroll down to view a list of the most common tyne sizes. We keep most sizes in stock. Please contact us first to check availability.

If the size you require is not there, please contact us as we also have other sizes available.
