What Sorts Of Forklift Attachments Are Available?
Did you know that attachments can be added to your forklift so that it can be used more efficiently or even to perform other tasks? The great thing about forklift attachments is that they can be hooked up and removed from the machine as needed – you should have no problems doing this yourself. So, what are some of the main attachments available?
- Tyne Extensions
When dealing with bulkier items and trickier loading or unloading tasks, you might find that you need longer tynes. With the addition of tyne extenders, you can extend the reach of your forklift to as much as 2.8 metres (on 4 or 5 tonne machines). You will be able to perform many tasks for more efficiently than ever before.
- Crane Jibs
Some applications may require you to perform vertical lifting – the addition of a crane jib can enable your forklift to perform such tasks with ease. We have a smaller model that is suitable for 2.5 tonne machines, as well as a larger model that is suitable for 4 or 5 tonne ones. Simply attach the load to the hook and raise it to your desired height. Both of these models are adjustable in length out to 3 metres.
- Carpet Poles
Those who work in the carpeting industry will know that moving large rolls can be quite difficult, as they can be heavy and awkward. By adding a pole forklift attachment, you will be able to safely handle carpet rolls of up to 2.8 metres long. This method of transportation will not damage the product and will make loading or unloading easier.
