Below are various questions Virnig Manufacturing receives on a regular basis. Browse through the following questions and click on a question to see the answer. If you do not see your question listed below please contact a local Virnig dealer or call 800.648.2408.
Tine length should be chosen based on the size of pallets that will be moved. Properly sizing tine length based on pallet size will prevent costly damage to loads and equipment. The tines should not be too short for the pallet, should not stick out of the end, and should allow the operator to center the load properly.
While Walk-Through Pallet Forks use the same frame, rail, and tines as the Hex-Guard Rail Pallet Fork, but there is an open backrest instead of a closed brickguard. This design allows easier operator entry and exit.
The backrest is ¼” x 2” formed and welded flat steel with a ⅜” grade 80 rail. The backrest is vertically flush with the tines to help keep material on the pallet. All Virnig pallet fork frames are laser cut and precision welded to deliver optimal performance.
Inferior pallet forks wear out or fail due to stress easier and more rapidly, costing the operator money in downtime and repairs. Virnig pallet forks are engineered to be stronger, thicker, heavier, and of a higher quality than the competition. With weight rated tines, a high visibility brickguard, a heavy rail system, and proper welding/gusseting, the Virnig pallet fork provides longevity and reliability.
As long as the fork in question uses an ITA Class II mount tine, the fork tines should be interchangeable. Virnig cannot guarantee fit. Please contact Virnig at 800-648-2408 with questions.
The distance between the hooks on the tine of the ITA Class II mount is 16 1/16” to 16 1/8”.
Cascade round knob style latches, Vetter lever style latches, and lever style latches for Global Sourced tines.
Yes, each type latch is designed differently and is only compatible with the correct type of tine.
No. The latches in the Vetter kit are different sizes and customers will need to order one kit per tine.

Virnig uses NitroSteel® rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.
Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.
A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice.
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
Most parts for Virnig skid steer attachments are available in-stock and can be shipped as early as the same day the order is received. Fabricated and back ordered parts are available with a reasonable lead time. Virnig uses several shipping options to provide timely and cost effective delivery to customers.

Ryan and Edie, thank you both for providing CL Boyd with exceptional service. From beginning to end, you all go above and beyond; thus, putting Virnig Mfg. ahead of its competitors. Your forks are a prime example of your care for detail and for your product. I really appreciate that when I go to mark these items with a chalk marker they are in order according to serial numbers, they are neatly organized on the pallet, and they are always clean and freshly painted. Believe it or not, this is actually pretty rare. Keep up the good work.
