The efficient KINSHOFER universal forks for loader cranes handle wallboards and other lying building materials up to a size of 1250 mm / 49 in height and 460 mm / 18 in depth. The tine spread can be adjusted to the sheets that have to be handled. The boards can be lifted and folded into a vertical position and are clamped between tines and frame, preventing them from sliding during handling. The load itself is protected from damage by semi-tapered forged tines with rollers and pads.

A special version with second suspension point on the main beam enables the unloading of lying boards through narrow openings in the wall.

The forks are also available as US-version and low storage US-version, the latter being especially designed for »over-the-cab-storage« where limited space requires a very narrow fork frame and overall width.

A wide range of accessories is available for the universal forks.
