Review: Hydrapower PF Series Forklift Tynes
Hydrapower PF Series Forklift Tynes: The Introduction
Forklift trucks are useful pieces of warehouse equipment. And you can make them even more useful by adding the right attachment. Essentially, there are numerous attachments that you can install to your vehicle. You can opt for a side shifter, a pallet handler, a clamp, or a jib. All these can provide utmost benefits to your business, such as better productivity and safer material handling. However, bear in mind that although they have almost the same advantages, they still differ in purposes. For instance, if you need to sit loads and lift and lower them, the most suitable forklift attachment type for you are the tynes.
Now, in today’s review, I will be sharing with you a particular forklift tyne model that has become a basic accessory in many shipping and warehousing operations here in Australia. The model is the Hydrapower PF (Pallet Fork) Series. Read on and let’s see if it can also meet your needs.
Hydrapower PF Series Forklift Tynes: Key Features
Like most of us know, Hydrapower is also one of the trusted earthmoving attachments manufacturers in the country. Given that, you’re sure that all the products under their portfolio are dependable and can perform at a top level. Their PF Series, particularly, is made for heavy-duty applications. Upon testing it with my team, not only can it load and unload palletised materials on-site, it can help make your forklift truck get the job done fast as well. This then results in valuable savings on both money and time.
The moment I saw this Hydrapower forklift tynes, the first thing that caught my interest was its robust construction. The attachment brings this solid bar stock, which, according to our local dealer, has been CNC milled. This makes it stronger and easier to slide even after a series of heavy use. It is also forged and heat treated so it won’t be brittle. In fact, during our test, it did not bend over like other tynes that we’ve tested before.
In addition, the PF Series gets a heavy duty load guard, too. This is incorporated into its one-piece carrying frame for better durability and strength. Not only that, it also has sufficient distance between its tynes range (200mm-1130mm) in order to accommodate various lifting loads. An opened carrying frame is standard as well, which provides better visibility to the operator.
Power and versatility
Like what I’ve mentioned earlier, the Hydrapower PF Series is for heavy-duty applications. And that isn’t hard to prove. Alongside its tough construction, it also has this robust tynes that can carry up to 1600 kg at 600mm load center. This makes it suitable not just for forklift truck use, but for wheeled loaders and mini skid steers, too.
