The Benefits of Using Forklift Attachments

Jan. 16, 2023

Forklifts have a variety of uses in the daily operations of your job site. However, forklift attachments can help optimize daily processes. Here are three key benefits of integrating forklift attachments into your site operations.


1. Improved performance

Forklift attachments are designed to handle a variety of responsibilities. Attachments can be easily swapped out, allowing your employees to quickly move from one task to another. This allows tasks to be completed more efficiently while eliminating downtime.

 

Strategically operating forklifts - such as implementing forklift attachments - helps your company move faster without the need for a variety of high-powered equipment to handle different workloads. Forklift attachments that help increase productivity include

 

Multiple load handlers

Multiple load handlers are designed to move more loads faster, while reducing product damage. They can carry one to six loads at a time.

 

Rotators

Rotator attachments apply 360-degree rotation, allowing forklift operators to quickly flip or dump loads. What is a swivel?

Rotators allow you to rotate the forks on your truck to safely and efficiently rotate the load for dumping. We offer several types of rotator attachments: box rotators, plastic container rotators, rotators with hydraulic bin retainers, rotators with or without side shift, etc. All of these are available in 180° or 360° versions.

 

Rotator attachments are commonly used in industries such as agriculture, construction, food and beverage. The attachments are suitable for different types of machines. In addition to forklift rotators, we also sell rotator attachments for telescopic forklifts and skid steer loaders.

Push/Pull Forklift Attachments

Push/pull allows operators to transport, receive and store loads on skids rather than pallets, thereby reducing the risk of product damage. As a result, these push/pull attachments promote efficient warehouse operations and require minimal maintenance.

 

Forklift Clamping Attachments

Forklift clamping attachments ensure a more efficient material handling process. Their best-selling fixture parts include.

 

Carton Clamps: Carton clamps allow your forklift operators to handle wider loads. They include padding, so you can take the load without damaging the item.
