Forager™ Magnetic Sweeper
The Forager magnetic sweeper is designed to mount on the rear pin of a forklift.
Designed for Maximum Flexibility!
The Forager Magnetic Sweeper is designed to fit almost every brand and size of forklift on the market right out of the box.
The Forager utilizes the rear pin on your forklift as the mounting point and the Forager mounting bracket is vented to ensure the pin mount can be used even if the exhaust on your forklift is vented through the pin slot.
No modifications to your forklift are necessary to mount the Forager. The mounting bracket uses the existing pin on your forklift ONLY. There is no need to modify, weld on or drill into your forklift in order to mount the Forager.
The Forager can be mounted to forklifts of varying sizes. The multiple installation bracket positions combined with the adjustable sweeping height ensures different height forklifts of every kind are accommodated.
The Forager was designed specifically to pickup and remove debris such as nails, screws, wire, discarded pieces from fabrication activities, bolts, nuts, pins, screw drivers, wrenches, etc. while operating the forklift.
Pick up metal debris to reduce flat tires while operating your forklift.

Eliminate Flat Tires!
Many commercial and industrial facilities have a need to eliminate flat tires on forklifts and other vehicles entering and exiting their properties. The cost, interruptions and delays that flat tires cause create the need for the use of a magnetic sweeper. The Forager was designed specifically to pick up and remove debris that causes flat tires such as nails, screws, wire, discarded pieces of metal from fabrication activities, bolts, nuts, pins, screw drivers, wrenches, etc.
The Forager allows you to clean up metal debris as other normal activities are carried out without adding more permanently ongoing labor costs. It results in negligible additional labor costs to solve the problem of flat tires because the magnet is picking up debris as the forklift does normal activities. By eliminating current and future labor costs of solving the flat tire problem, the payback period of investing in the Forager magnetic sweeper is greatly reduced. The Forager pays for itself very quickly in most circumstances.
The Forager’s design mounts to almost every brand and size of forklift on the market right out of the box. Features such as vertical installation angle adjustment and sweeping height adjustment fine tune the fit.
The Quick Clean Off Sleeve that comes standard as part of the Forager makes removing the debris from the magnet quick and easy.
Any facility that is experiencing flat tires and has a forklift covering the area could use a Forager to reduce flat tires.
Recommended Industry Applications
Quick Clean Off Sleeve
Clean off takes only seconds!
The Forager comes standard with a black PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve. Simply pull the sleeve off and all of the debris falls off the magnet on the side you pulled the sleeve off from. Clean off takes only seconds.
Easy, convenient, simple.
Vertical Installation Angle Adjustment Feature
Forager Magnet Vertical Adjustment Feature
The vertical installation angle of the Forager is easily adjustable to accommodate different rear forklift geometries of every kind.
Vertically tilting the Forager at different angles fine tunes the fit of the magnet to your forklift.
Sweeping Height Adjustment Feature
Forager Magnet Height Adjustment Feature
Adjusting the magnet sweeping height is easy on the Forager with just a twist of the handle on the top. The Forager will pick up a 2.5” nail when the bottom of the magnet is 8.5” off the ground providing plenty of pickup power performance in dirt and gravel and when operating on moving forklifts. To maximize performance we recommend setting sweeping height between 3 and 4 inches in most situations.
Permanently Charged Grade C8 Magnets
The Forager uses permanently charged grade C8 magnets that will never need to be recharged. Power will never decrease, ensuring years of use.
The Forager magnet is completely enclosed, and the replaceable black PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve further protects the magnet by taking all of the wear and tear of everyday use.

Magnet Pivot Feature
Forager Magnet Pivot Feature Video
The Forager magnet can pivot out of the way if it hits something occasionally on the ground. The pivot feature allows the magnet to swing up and out of the way when hit.
It isn’t a guarantee of no damages if you hit something, but it eliminates damages in most circumstances where the magnet hits something. The pivot points are also lockable if required.
Heavy Duty Construction
Sand Blasted Steel Frame for Smooth & Durable Paint Finish
The steel frame is sand blasted and coated with high quality black paint for durability that will continue to look good for years to come. Parts are blasted with Kerfjet #80 Garnet Stone and then primered with PPG High Build Epoxy primer (2 coats). It is then finished with PPG UROTEC Gloss Black (2 coats) and allowed to dry for 1 full day. Blasting with stone rather than sand creates a cleaner and smoother finish to prep for painting which provides a high quality “smooth” finished paint appearance. The paint finish is a urethane product which provides a harder finish than regular fast dry industrial paint or rust paint. This harder finish means it doesn’t scratch as easily and has a longer life.
Additional Magnet Protection
Metal debris hitting the aluminum magnet housing can wear the aluminum housing on the magnet over a long period of time and reduce its useful service life, therefore we’ve shifted the wear to the replaceable and removable PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve that not only makes clean off quick and easy but it extends the life of the Forager magnet.
To make clean off even easier we’ve thought of everything, therefore the Forager comes standard with our double handled orange debris catcher. Just pull the debris catcher out of its holder on the Forager, and lay it down on the ground at the end of the magnet before you pull the sleeve off. Pull off the black PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve, and all the debris will fall onto the orange debris catcher. This then allows you to easily pick up the debris catcher with the debris on it, and dump it in the garbage. No more looking around for something to catch the debris.
