We strongly recommend our customers submit an RFQ rather than place an order on the website.

In most cases, we can provide a written quote within hours, including an accurate ship date allowing our customers to consider the delivery date when ordering.

We strive to provide accurate information on the availability of Morse equipment. Some of the factors that affect lead times are:

  • Custom equipment and equipment made of select materials built to order
  • Standard in-stock designs often require final assembly before shipment
  • Delays in components supplied by our vendors
  • Current shop backlog when placing the order

In the event of a canceled order, McBrady-McMahon may deduct cancellation charges from any refunds.

Modify fork truck nameplate information to reflect the capacity of fork truck with Morse attachment. Fork truck capacity can be substantially lower than the original rated capacity, as adding an attachment tends to move the center of gravity of the combined truck and load forward.

See Operator’s Manual for Center of Gravity Dimensions to Calculate Lost Load on Your Fork Truck
