Utilise what you already have!

Forklift attachments can turn your existing forklift truck into a multi-tasking tool box! Saving you huge sums of money as you don’t have to buy other specialist material handling equipment and supporting structures.

For example,

  • You can replace spreader beams with 4 fork forklift attachments which give a greater load stability for wide or long loads.
  • Brick grabs easily adapt to become forklift attachments.
  • Carpet poles and coil handling booms make storage and stock retrieval a simple task.

Effectively forklift attachments become cranes, jibs, access platforms, skips, long reach facilities and even snow ploughs and floor sweepers. We also design and build fork truck equipment and hydraulic forklift attachments to order. If you have a special requirement speak to an engineer on 01661 853198.  With a few simple, safe procedures you can triple the contribution a forklift truck makes with forklift attachments.
