Forklifts can be put to use for far more applications than simply moving and lifting pallets. Using the right accessories, lift trucks can be employed for a number of other applications throughout your enterprise.
There are also specialty attachments for hard to handle items like forgings and castings, metal or plastic drums, wine barrels and other bulky products. Although quite a few attachments are broadly used and recognized by most people, others are not. Here is a synopsis of a handful of the more frequently used attachments on the market:
Forklift Clamp Attachment
Several varieties of clamp attachments exist, and they are each designed for a specific purpose. Here are some common types of clamp equipment:
Carton clamps are often used to transport large rectangular or square products that don’t require a pallet like large electronics or appliances. They are also a perfect solution for processing delicate items when outfitted with an automatic pressure sensing system.
Paper Roll Clamp:
These are frequently used in industries like paper manufacturing, newspaper printing and tissue manufacturing. They can accommodate all different dimensions of paper rolls, and can be outfitted with automatic pressure controls and different gripper pads that prevent damage to the paper.
Forklift Jib Attachment
Lift jibs enable adaptable lifting of bulky, long loads, such as pipes, tubes, and bar stock. There are even lift jibs for extremely awkward and heavy goods like stone slabs. The forklift lift jib slides onto both forks and is fastened to the forklift with a safety chain. Adjustable hooks are fastened along the jib, allowing the operator to move loads of assorted sizes and lengths.
Forklift Attachments To Move Trailers
Trailer mover attachments offer a convenient way of ferrying towable trailers around an operation without connecting a tow vehicle. The attachment has a common ball trailer hitch and a safety chain. Once the trailer is hitched, it can be moved readily and in tighter spaces than with average tow vehicles.
Forklift Drum Attachment
Drum handlers are designed to grab the outside of a drum cylinder and make short work of handling heavy plastic, steel or fiber drums. Most are equipped to handle one or two drums at a time.
Extensions allow you to manage larger or non-uniformly shaped loads with improved stability. The operator simply inserts the forks into the extensions and secures them in place, giving the forklift longer forks to handle difficult to handle loads.
Positioners are one of the most widely used forklift accessories. They allow you to hydraulically adjust the space between your forks. This permits rapid and more effective handling of variably sized object and pallets.
Push Pull Forklift Attachment
These attachments (often referred to as Slipsheet Forklift Attachments) are used for handling product groups that use slip sheets in place of pallets. They are frequently used for bagged products like grains or cement, and food items like packaged food, dairy and fruit. Slipsheets are used in place of pallets, saving space and reducing the cost of pallets.
