ITA / FEM Forklift Forks – Hook-ITA fork classes are the same world -wide under ISO standards. The standard FEM hook style fork arms come in two types, “A’ & “B”. The difference in the types reflect differences in the ground-to-carriage distance when the mast id fully lowered. Type “A” is primarily used for indoor and many outdoor trucks. Type “B” is primarily intended for outdoor trucks. However, the applications can be interchangeable. Type “B” forks can replace type “A” forks, but not vice-versa because the type “A” would not reach the ground.
