Fork tines unergo a lot of wear on the job, especially when used outside or to pick up ridged material. Over time, the fork will decrease in thickness from every day use. Additional issues can arise from stress or collision such as little cracks or gouges. Any wear to a fork beyond 10% in total thickness is considered excessive wear. The fork tips often will get bent if the forks are being used to pick up material it was not designed for. Be sure to also check for any bends in the fork. If a fork tine is not at a 90 degree angle, you could risk serious injury due to an unbalanced load. Lastly, be sure to check the positioning lock and fork hooks. If there is any damage to the positioning lock, the fork should be replaced immediately. Most fork hooks can be replaced without replacing the entire fork tine. Any damage to the fork tine that is considered excessive should be removed from operation immediately. If you need to replace a single fork, it is highly recommended you replace the pair of forks to maintain even wear.
