A forklift magnetic sweeper picks up metal debris while you work.

Do you need a forklift magnetic sweeper?

There are over two billion pallets in the USA alone.  Broken pallets lose the nails that hold them together and  leave behind nails and wrapper staples that cause flat tires but can easily be cleaned up with a forklift fitted with a forklift magnet.

Forklifts also move things around, and in the process of moving things around, pieces of metal fall off trucks, pallets and the material being moved.

Forklifts are mobile in the same area and therefore capable of sweeping up the debris while carrying out normal operations at no additional labor cost

Forklift magnets pay for themselves quickly by preventing flat tires and downtime of equipment, and repair costs.

Types of Forklift Magnetic Sweepers

There are three types Forklift Magnets available differentiated by their mounting location;

Forager 44 Rear Mount Magnetic Sweeper Demostration

Rear Mounted Forklift Magnets

Rear mounted to the back of the forklift using the rear forklift Pin as the mount location. This type of forklift magnet is meant to be permanently mounted allowing use while the forklift is performing normal duties.

Fork Mounted Forklift Magnets

Fork Mount magnets slide on and off the forks of the forklift. This type of forklift magnet is only mounted temporarily on the forks when the need arises and you can’t use the forklift for anything else when using it as a magnetic sweeper.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of forklift magnets?

If you're looking at the hanging magnet options, remember the Remoras and the strongest Wrasse (4.5" x 4.5" series) have the same magnet. The only reason for selecting the Remoras over the Wrasse is if you have rough terrain and you expect the magnet to hit the ground frequently. In this case you'll need the Remoras.

Top Questions to Ask Before Buying a Forklift Magnetic Sweeper

1. Will the magnetic sweeper be mounted to the forklift permanently or will it be temporary?

If you can mount a magnet permanently on your forklift it’s going to working for you all the time at no extra labor cost, and it will also save you the time of temporary mounting and de-mounting. Fork mounted sweepers have the drawback that they don’t allow you to keep the magnet permanently mounted because you need to use the forklift.  Therefore if you can make it work, a rear or mid mount forklift magnet is always better.

2. Will the maneuverability of our forklift be affected by the magnetic sweeper?

You need to consider the effect of any permanently mounted forklift magnet on overall forklift maneuverability at your location. Rear mount forklift magnets extend the overall length of the forklift to some degree, some are straight, some wrap around the back of the forklift better, but each can affect at least to some degree your forklift maneuverability.  If you don’t have a lot of space to move your forklift around, then a mid mount forklift magnet is going to rank higher for you.  If you’ve all kinds of space, maneuverability isn’t a concern.

3. How well does the magnetic sweeper fit your particular forklift?

You need to consider what magnets will fit your forklift. Not every magnet fits every forklift.  Some forklifts are low and can only accept some mid mount magnets.  Rear mount magnets have specific fit guidelines that need to be checked to ensure they will fit your specific forklift.

4. How far off the ground will the forklift magnetic sweeper be positioned?

We want to make sure our products meet your expectations. Therefore make sure you take a look at our “maximum lifting height” specification.  We bench test every one of our magnetic sweeper models to determine their maximum lifting height of a two and a half inch standard nail.  Everyone knows what a two and a half inch nail looks like which is why we use this standard measure of magnet strength and it will give you a very good idea of magnet performance.  Many times we have videos of our products picking up various other materials so take a look at the videos in the video galleries.  They give you a chance to “kick the tires” and see how the products perform.  Many of these videos have been submitted by previous customers.  Make sure the magnet strength matches the type of debris you expect to be picking up.

5. What terrain and in what conditions will you be working in?

The rougher, dirtier terrain your forklift operates in the stronger the magnet your likely going to want, because the magnet will have to be set higher to avoid constantly hitting the ground. The magnet will also need to pick up debris through some dirt therefore you need a stronger magnet.  The rougher the terrain that exists because of things like bumps and pot holes, more you will want or favor a magnet that has some protection built in to the design to either deal with the abuse of hitting the ground or being able to move out of the way when it does hit the ground in order to prevent damage.

6. How easy is the forklift magnetic sweeper to clean off?

A magnetic sweeper may work really well at picking up debris, but how easy is it to clean off? Think through how you would clean the magnet off step by step.  Make sure it makes sense to you and your situation.  We try and do this for you so that clean off isn’t ridiculous, but some manufacturers don’t.  Pay attention to the details of how this will work right to the point of getting the debris in the garbage or scrap bin.

7. How good is the forklift magnet at hanging on to the debris that it picks up?

You are not going to be cleaning your magnet off constantly, so it’s important that when your magnet does pick up a nail or screw that the magnet secures the debris so that it won’t fall off if the magnet is suddenly shaken because of a bump or if the bottom of the magnet hits the ground and the debris is wiped backward on the magnet. The last thing you want is for the debris to fall off again.  Make sure your magnet has some feature like our “Wrap Around Feature”, it not only makes sure debris doesn’t get wiped off the bottom of the magnet, it makes the debris holding capacity higher and you’ll find in practice that most of your debris ends up on the side of your magnet not the bottom of it.  And that’s a good indication to you why we have this feature.

Quick Tip #2

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of Forklift magnets?

My recommendation is to select a magnetic sweeper that you can leave mounted all the time if at all possible so that it works for you all the time.
