OSHA regulations require that extensions are no more than 150% of the existing fork length. (e.g. 48" existing forks, would require that the fork extensions not exceed 72"). Fork extensions DO NOT change the load center of forklift. Never exceed the load center rating of your forklift. DO NOT use fork extensions if the load exceeds forklift manufacturer's guidelines.
