Forklift attachments can be easy to overlook, but they are essential in modifying the capability of your equipment. Depending on the task at hand, a particular forklift may or may not be best suited to get the job done. This is where attachments come in. With the right unique modification, it’ll not only be more convenient, but there will be more productivity. Below is a brief list of basic forklift attachments to offer you a better idea of what kind are out there and how they can benefit you.
If you’re looking to handle nonstandard material and must be able to adjust the distance between forks quickly, a positioner is a must. Fork positioners give the operator the power to adjust the forks to fit various pallet sizes quickly, efficiently, and safely.
If you’ve ever experienced a lot that wasn’t properly aligned with your forks, you probably aren’t alone. A side shifter allows the operator to adjust the forks from left to right without ever leaving the driver’s seat, making for an easy and safe transition without moving the entire forklift.
Everyone wishes they could successfully multitask. With a multi-pallet handler, you can. This attachment allows for multiple loads to be operated at the same time, scaling down your workload and getting it done in half the time it would’ve typically taken.
While traditional forks lift up and down, a rotator will be most beneficial when transporting bins or containers. Because of its ability to rotate and reposition, it’ll help in dumping or emptying the containers without the help of another operator.
Forklifts help in the day-to-day transporting of materials, but there are many ways that they can be improved. Rather than taking up more time by needed extra operator assistance, consider investing in a forklift attachment that will result in faster and safer productivity!
