USE THIS INFORMATION TO HELP DETERMINE WHICH CTI DRIVE-IN FORKS SHOULD BE USED ON A SPECIFIC LOADER
CTI Drive-In Forks have been manufactured in the U.S. since 1967, and we are very proud of their fine reputation for performance. When selected and used properly, CTI Drive-In Forks will provide years of satisfactory service and save many labor intensive man hours.
These forks come in many sizes, making it possible to match the lift capacity of the forks with the loader lift capacity and the bucket size.
To determine which forks are right for your loader, use the following three guidelines.
The suggested attachments in the CTI Equipment Match section are based
on published machine specifications (which do not include bucket openings)
where available, and standard bucket sizes and machine configurations.
LIFT CAPACITY and BUCKET OPENING ARE CRITICAL when choosing forks for any loader bucket.
The maximum lifting capacity of the machine (generally determined by tipping the loads) can be two to three times its rated capacity. Therefore, the maximum load which should be handled with the forks is always limited by either the load rating for the specific fork model being utilized, assuming center and equal loading on the tines, or by the rated lift capacity of the machine on which the forks are mounted, whichever is lower.
There are two primary criteria for selecting forks:

|* Measured at center point of tines.|
|** For long, flexible loads on Model 220 Forks, two tines shall be placed side by side, creating pairs for equal tine loading.|
Never roll forks back so that the load can fall on you or others.
In addition, it is important to keep in mind the following points:
THESE ARE GUIDELINES ONLY. They are intended to aid the operator/end user who has the most knowledge of the particular machine being used, the nature of the load being lifted, and the condition of the terrain being driven.
NOTE: CTI Drive-In Forks come complete with an owner's manual and safety labeling. Be sure all instructions and cautions are read and understood before operating any unit equipped with these forks. The owner's kit also includes a safety manual for rough terrain forklifts which covers proper operating practices.
