Proof Load Testing Industrial Forklifts

Proof load testing industrial forklifts should be incorporated into every organizations forklift maintenance program. Annual proof load testing verifies the mechanical integrity of the mast, high pressure hydraulic hoses and connectors, and the primary hydraulic pump. Failure of any of these components could result in dropping a load at the most critical moment – when a heavy load is suspended overhead.

Hydro-Wates offers personnel and equipment to proof load test industrial forklifts using stackable steel test weights, as well as other specialized equipment. Our steel test weights allow for concentration of the test load within manufacturer’s load-moment design specifications, which allows for safer application of the test load. Because our test weights are stackable onto a load certified lift stand, there is no need to secure the individual weights with load binders, netting or other remedial techniques.
