Resolve to Recover Your Clamp Pads

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on Jan 7, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Clamp pads are an indispensable piece of equipment for your forklift. That’s because they attach to special forks to allow you to move oddly-shaped or fragile materials around your warehouse or facility with ease. When clamp pads wear out, you could be at risk for damage from sliding, scratching and even dropping materials. If you’re buying a brand new set of clamp pads every time they wear out, you’re wasting precious time and money.

How To Care For Clamp Pads

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on Jun 6, 2018 2:42:00 PM

Clamp pads and forklift fork covers are the absolute best tool for tough applications. These pads provide the extra grip and decrease damage when moving material. If you use them in your warehouse, you won’t move anything without them. But when these pads get worn out, caring for them can be a headache. First, they’re expensive to replace and your forklift is left sitting while the part ships. Worse-case scenario is when the new pads don’t fit and you have to send them back and start the process all over again. That’s lost productivity, in time and money, you can’t get back.
