Fork Clamps

Fork Clamps

High-Visibility Fork Clamps can be used for transporting palletized goods as well as clamping purposes. OEA-Kaup’s optimized design ensures superior visibility for the driver and allows quick and precise operation of the clamp. The compact dimensions provide stability, and the robust sliding profile decreases wear and tear. Customization of the opening ranges, frame widths, fork types, and sizes adds new levels of versatility.

Quick & Easy


Version with independent side shift: the guide rail for the sideshifter housings located on the upper bar of the fork carriage and locks into the center notch. The complete attachment is mounted onto this guide rail and secured by bolting the bottom mounting brackets (1) to the car-riage. These are needle bearing guided bottom brackets (SMOOTHROLL) (2); attachments with capacities above 3.5 tons feature tandem rollers (3). Once the hydraulic hose lines from the attachment to the truck are connected the attachment is ready for operation.

If required, OEA Kaup quick release brackets (4) can be sup-plied. These allow the clamp to be mounted/dismounted quickly without any tool.



OEA Kaup Clamps set high standards with regards to visibility. Optimized design ensures excellent visibility for the driver and allows quick and precise operation of the clamp guaranteeing high working performance and reducing accident risk significantly.



OEA Kaup Clamps can be supplied with side shift function on request, which simplifies operation for the truck driver.

Especially independent sideshift system (1-4) permits side-shifting without restriction under safety regulations and allows utilization of the entire opening range for shifting loads horizontally. All side shift housings feature (SOFTSTOP), end-of-stroke-slow-down.

If required all OEA Kaup Clamps can be fitted with valve block side shift system which uses the residual stroke of the clamp cylinders to achieve lateral arm movement.



A combination of T and C profiles is used on OEA Kaup Clamps characterized by favorable weight with very compact dimensions providing high stability. An extremely robust sliding profile to improve gliding and to reduce wear and tear is found between the profiles



OEA KAUP Clamps are synonymous to trouble free operation. As the components used have been proven thousands of times, servicing is simple and can be carried out without requiring any special skills. In conjunction with the OEA KAUP modular built system the availability of replacements parts at reasonable prices is second to none.



Pressure reduction valve and manometer gauge: KAUP Clamps are fitted for the function “open clamp“ with a preset pressure reduction valve to prevent damage on the clamp arms by lateral pushing of the loads with arm outstretched. In order to regulate the closing force when handling pressure sensitive loads a pressure reduction valve is fitted generally. If required three different force levels can be pre-set and controlled, either manually (7) or by solenoid valve. A manometer gauge (6) mounted in good view of the driver provides a ready check on the hydraulic operation pressure of the clamp.

Load backrest: OEA KAUP Clamps feature mounting lugs as standard enabling a backrest to be fitted conveniently without drilling or any other modifications. Parts required for mounting, such as spacers and screws, are supplied.

Load Backrest

Load backrests (1) can be easily retrofitted on existing clamps. They come as standard equipment and are located in the top mounting rings provided on the clamp body. The fastening and spacer elements are inserted through the mounting ring and the backrest is secured with the two M16 bolts provided.


OEA KAUP Clamps can be individually fitted or modified for the most demanding tasks. A cylinder protection (2), cylinder and piston rod protection or sideshift cylinder protection, respectively hose protection (3), depending on the application of the clamp can be fitted to all models in order to to reduce damages and to maximize the availability of the attachment.
