One of many forklift jib arms made by the experts at Contact, this range includes nine different models built to suit trucks of specific capacities, ensuring that there is plenty of choice for customers with different operations to complete.
The beam has a fixed length of 1800mm and it possesses 4 placement holes for anchoring the hook, the first is at 1000mm, then at 1250mm, 1500mm and the last is at 1750mm, offering extremely good versatility.
Incorporating large pockets to allow driving the truck straight in, then using the heel pins to secure in place.
The lifting capacity will largely depend on the capacity of your truck and also the placement of the hook. (the hook nearest the forks can lift higher capacities than the hole at the very end; see table below)
With the help of a jib attachment, you can make a forklift truck much more versatile as a piece of material handling equipment.
In the case of the FMJ from Contact, this means you can quickly add a crane-style lifting solution, complete with an integrated hook. This allows it to be attached to loads by a shackle and any other compatible equipment and accessories.
There are several different types of forklift jib arm available on the Lifting Gear Direct site, including models which offer adjustability as well as those like the FMJ which are fixed in place.
The load you need to move with your forklift might not suit a jib arm setup, in which case our other attachments might come into play.
