Fork-Mounted Guard Arm for Telehandlers

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

The new Fork-Mounted Guard Arm from LineWise helps to prevent conductors from falling into right-of-way crossings. Designed to conveniently mount to the pallet forks on a telehandler, the Guard Arm provides a simple yet effective safety measure to securely catch falling lines.

Featuring a 1,200-pound capacity, the LineWise Guard Arm has a 12-foot-wide span from tip to tip with the ears installed, allowing it to accommodate a variety of distribution lines. When not in use, the ears can be easily stowed on the unit to maintain a more compact profile. The Guard Arm also includes a cross roller with bearings to facilitate movement if a conductor lands on it.

The Guard Arm weighs 607 pounds and can be used on all telehandlers with a capacity of 8,000 pounds or greater. It can be installed or detached in approximately 30 seconds with no adapter needed. A rear locking pin, which meets OSHA requirements, securely holds the unit in place on the forks.
