Your forks secure your load, safety and the safety of others.
You wouldn’t drive your vehicle without a tune-up.  Your forks are no different.
Forks can weaken over time for many reasons.
Driving while the forks are touching the concrete floor can create a wearing effect like when you sharpen a knife with a stone. Lifting loads heavier than allowable safety standards or lifting loads with the tips of the forks can create metal fatigue in the steel.
Maintenance shops may unintentionally bend forks, weld on them, drill a hole through them or apply excessive heat during repair
All factors that can weaken forks, endangering your load and the safety of others.
Your forks should be inspected at least once a year by a qualified service technician.
