Skid-Steer Fork Raises To New Heights
Sheyenne Tooling's "Tele-Fork" has a 2,000-lb. capacity at its maximum lift height of 12 1/2 ft.
Company representative Ted Traeder says the company created it after a customer wanted to lift furniture, sheet rock, and other materials to the upper floors of new homes. Before coming out with the Tele-Fork, the customer had to rent an expensive telehandler, crane or other machine to do the job. The Tele-Fork provides the capability to reach new heights and also functions as a conventional forklift when used at ground level.
The fork's prongs are 4 in. wide by 48 in. long. The whole thing weighs 1,100 lbs and comes powder coated.
The Tele-Fork, which was displayed for the first time in August, sells for $2,295.
