A Cat® Wheel Loader equipped with a Cat Pipe & Pole Fork is perfect for transporting, loading and unloading long lengths of pipe and poles — either single or multiple pieces. The upper arm of the Pipe & Pole Fork can be moved up and out of the way allowing the fork to work like a pallet fork handle other material.
Detailed Equipment Specifications
Carriage Height - Closed Clamp
Carriage Height - Open Clamp
Tine Spacing - Maximum Width
Developed with a robust structure, Cat® Pipe & Pole Forks allow for high performance carrying of 76 mm (3 in) pipe up to 762 mm (30 in), all while using the same tool.
Robust and Versatile Structure
Robust carriage and top clamp ensure high levels of production Wide two-piece clamp holds pipe in place against tines and carriage Clamp can be positioned for desirable diameter of materials Single stems or multiple pieces, at the same diameter, can be transported at the same time, increasing productivity
Tines width can be adjusted to better fit at application requirements No tools required for adjustment
Protected Hydraulic Cylinders
The top clamp design allows the hydraulic cylinders to stay protected, avoiding undesirable damages at the cylinder and unexpected down time.
Pallets and other Materials
If palletized material transport is required, just totally open the clamp and use the carriage as a fork.
