From time to time you may need to lift longer/wider objects with your fork lift truck, this can lead to the load and more importantly the fork lift truck itself becoming highly unstable and could easily cause it to tip over. This could cause damage to the load, truck, driver and any other people in the vicinity.
To alleviate this balance issue we have a range of extension available from our forklift attachment collection which simply slide onto the forks of your truck and lock into place. These extensions offer excellent support for wide loads due to the extra projections of steel – much like an extra fork on either side.
We have 2 models to choose from, one has shorter projections, ideal for long and narrow loads with lifting capacities up to 5000kg; the other longer ones are ideal for long and wide loads, with lifting capacities up to 3000kg. They both have maximum fork sizes of 140 x 50mm.
As with all lifting applications a stable load is the safest, and with safety being the number one priority, if you are lifting longer loads with your fork lift truck you should use this type of extension to stabilise the balance of the load.
