Do you often wish you could safely lift loads from underneath the forks of your fork lift truck? Well now you can with our forklift hook attachments! Lifting Gear Direct has lots of convenient material handling equipment to consider, with our forklift hook attachments being just one option.
We have a range of fork lift hook attachments which simply put will turn your truck into a little crane. The hook attachments are really simple to fit, slide them onto the forks and lock in the retaining pin to the rear of the forks or the screw bolts, depending on the type chosen. The attachment consist of a steel beam fixed between the fork sleeves, to which a shackle in centrally located; on this shackle you will find a large suspension hook complete with a safety locking catch from where you can safely attach your load.
We currently have two models to choose from, one has a fixed reach whilst the other has an adjustable reach. The fixed reach model fixes behind the forks; the adjustable reach version can be fixed to any location along the length of the forks and is locked into position with 2 big ‘T’ type screws
The fixed reach forklift hook attachment is the FMH from Contact, which actually encompasses a number of different versions with varying load limits available. These capacities start at 1 tonne and rise to 5 tonnes, while the fork spread is consistent across the range.
The adjustable reach attachment is the FMHA, also made by Contact. It has the same capacity range as the FMH, but factors in a decent amount of adjustability which helps to accommodate differing load dimensions.
