Forklift Jib Arms
We offer a range of forklift Jib arms to enhance the use of your forklift truck by turning it into a small crane. This lets you get more use out of a forklift truck and could save you having to order a separate crane or gantry system to complete both material handling and lifting operations.
Why Use A Forklift Jib Arm
These Jib arms mount securely to the forks/tines and allow you to lift from under or over the tines, depending on which model is chosen, they also give you a far greater reach than just forks alone.
There are a few forklift jib models which attach to the actual carriage of the truck, which will neccessitate the removal of the forks; these will possiably offer more stability than those fitted to the forks.
Some models have 2 lifting hooks and some have an extendable reach, take a look at the full range to choose your perfect forklift truck jib arm accessory.
You can find out about the capabilities of individual forklift jib arms by clicking through to product pages. However, in general you can expect each range to come in a range of capacities, with some starting at as little as 1000kg and rising to 5000kg.
Because each jib arm will have its own limitations and compatibility requirements, be sure to look carefully at the available information before deciding. Use our contact details below if you have any questions.
We even supply equipment designed to cope with different types of operations, including drum handling gear which is clearly quite specialised in design, as well as load moving kit for all purposes. Our pallet trucks are particularly appealing as an option for manually moving palletised loads without the need for a powered forklift.
