Quality & Engineering

The Caldwell Group has been manufacturing lifting equipment since 1954. It is our goal to manufacture high quality, long lasting lifting products that will safely increase productivity and reduce operating costs.

Both OSHA and ANST/ITSDF indicate modifications and additions to a fork truck require prior written approval from the original fork truck manufacturer.


OSHA 1910.178(a)(4) states “Modifications and additions which affect capacity and safe operation shall not be performed by the customer or user without manufacturers prior written approval. Capacity, operations, and maintenance instruction plates, tags, or decals shall be changed accordingly.”

ANSI/ITSDF B56.10-2006 4.2.1 states “no modification or alterations to a powered industrial truck that may affect the capacity, stability or safe operation of the truck, shall be made without the prior written approval of the original truck manufacturer or its successor thereof. When the truck manufacturer or its successor approves a modification or alteration, appropriate changes shall be made to capacity plates, decals, tags, and operations and maintenance manuals.”

ANSI/ITSDF B56.10-2006, Part III, 7.4.5 - The attachment manufacturer shall install a durable, corrosion resistant nameplate, with the following information legibly and permanently inscribed:
• Model designation
• Serial Number
• Maximum hydraulic pressure (on hydraulically actuated attachments)
• Weight (value to be accurate +/-5%)
• Capacity
• The following instruction (or equivalent): Capacity of truck and attachment combination may be less than capacity shown on attachment. Consult truck nameplate.

All product designs are subject to change without notice. Products pictured in this catalogue are a representation of a specific design. The product you purchase will be designed for your specific application and may not look exactly like the picture in this catalogue.

3. Instruction in any special operations or precautions that may
be required.
4. Recognition of proper load configuration. For example, preferred operation requires an orderly pattern of stacking.
5. Before assuming responsibility for using the attachment, an operator shall demonstrate his understanding of the lifting procedure to the instructor. The instructor should record notes of operator's demonstrated ability.

The attachment should be visually inspected by or under the direction of an appointed person on a daily or weekly schedule depending on the nature of the attachment and the severity of the service. Details to look for include but are not limited to:
1. Structural deformation.
2. Cracks in the structural frame, welds, attachment points, mechanically operating parts, any attached slings, clevises and hooks.

3. Malfunctions during operation of a mechanically operating attachment.

2. Any repairs shall be done by the manufacturer or with instructions and guidance from the manufacturer. If repairs are performed by someone other than the manufacturer a qualified person should have responsibility for repairs. Dated records and details of repairs and parts replacement should be carefully maintained by a qualified  person, and copies kept in your possession.
3. Replacement parts shall be at least equivalent to the original
manufacturer's specifications.


1. The operator shall receive, read and understand the manufacturer's instruction manual.
2. The operator shall watch carefully that the attachment is performing properly during the lifting procedure.
3. The operator shall know the standard crane hand signals.
4. The operator shall only respond to signals from an appointed
person. However, stop signals from anyone shall be obeyed.
5. The operator shall notify a designated person when he considers a load to be unsafe.
6. The operator shall inspect the attachments before using. Any defect found shall be examined by a qualified person to determine if it is a hazard.


1. The operator shall not operate a malfunctioning attachment or one with an "out of service" tag attached.
2. The operator shall not use the attachments for any purpose(s) other than those designated by the manufacturer's instruction manual.
3. The operator shall not use an attachment when the capacity,
weight or safety markings are missing or are not legible.
4. No one shall make alterations or modifications to attachments
without consulting the manufacturer.
5. No one shall obscure or paint over the manufacturer's capacity,
weight, or safety markings.
6. Loads shall not be lifted higher than necessary or be left
suspended unattended.
7. The attachment shall not lift a load that is not properly balanced for safe lifting.


1. The attachment shall not be loaded in excess of its rated load.
2. Ensure the load can withstand forces applied by the lifter.
3. The combined weight of the attachment and load shall not exceed the rated load of the fork lift when load center and lost load is considered. (See fork lift manufacturer’s information).
4. The attachment shall be applied to the load in accordance with the manufacturer's recommended operating procedure.
5. Attachment chains shall not be kinked, and multiple part lines shall not be twisted about each other.
6. The attachment shall not touch obstructions during load movement.
7. The attachment shall not be loaded with loose material that might fall during movement.
8. The operator or other personnel shall not place themselves or any part of their bodies beneath suspended loads.
9. The load or attachment shall not be slid on the floor or other surface.
10. The attachment shall not be used for loads for which it is not designed.
11. Do not attempt to reposition load when raised.
12. A preliminary lift of a few inches shall be made to establish that the load is stable.
13. All loads shall be accelerated and decelerated smoothly and slowly. This applies to both mast movement and fork lift movement.

Modifications or repairs performed on your lifting equipment without prior written approval from The Caldwell Group, Inc. voids your warranty. Refer to ASME standards for information regarding the liability of repaired or modified lifters.
