Beluga Fork Design

By Ken Welch on 2018-10-11 09:31:44 -

Beluga forklift forks are basically non-tapered blunt end forks with rounded tip. The increased impact surface of the fork tip can mitigate the damage done to bags, sacks, IBC totes, etc.

Worldwide, the ISO is the most common way to connect forks to forklifts. DIN forks are mainly found on very old lift trucks, some high capacity units, and construction/agricultural equipment.
