Paladin Attachments has an updated version of its 200 to 500 class JRB construction utility forks. Redesigned to incorporate feedback from customers, as well as engineering design enhancements, the updated models include a lowered top cross tube for increased visibility and a larger 3-in. (7.6 cm)-diameter tube for added strength. The new design features an improved center of gravity for better load management. A single hanger is featured on the 60-in. (152 cm)-wide frame for increased visibility and reduced weight. Drop-forged tines provide increased sturdiness and reduce material movement while it is being transported over uneven terrain. Wheel loaders may be turned into versatile heavy-duty forklifts to safely transport large loads of construction-related materials such as pallets and pipes. To complete the size ranges covered, Paladin continues to offer its classic 100 and 600 to 900 models.

JRB construction utility forks are compatible with JRB’s quick hitch mount and other industry quick coupler systems that can maximize the utilization of a wheel loader and reduce the time it takes to switch out attachments. Pin-on mounts are available if needed. Load capacities are rated beyond wheel loader lift capacities and are based on a 24-in. (61 cm) load center.

The forks are available with manually adjustable tines or hydraulically actuated tines for side-to-side adjustments from the cab. Optional hydraulic side shift allows for precise material placement and special order carriage widths and tine lengths are available upon request.

JRB construction utility forks are designed with carriage widths ranging from 60 to 106 in. (152 to 269 cm). Tine lengths range from 48 to 96 in. (122 to 244 cm) and tines are available in sizes ranging from 2 by 4 in. (5 to 10 cm) to 4 by 8 in. (10 to 20 cm).
