Forklift attachments you need to boost productivity in your warehouse

If there’s one thing every warehouse could benefit from, it’s a boost in productivity. Getting more done in less time is the aim for any business! Forklifts themselves have made warehouses massively more efficient but to take it to the next level, these are some forklift attachments that every workplace forklift truck should have.

Boom

Booms boost your capacity and your stability meaning you can transport heavier loads in less trips. Booms are available in telescopic and non-telescopic models with the former enabling you to increase your reach by around 144 inches and bringing your load capacity up to around 8,000 pounds! Booms allow your forklift trucks to operate in a similar way to a crane, creating a swinging motion that lets you move heavier objects more easily.

Self-dumping hoppers

Automation is a key part of the efficiency of self-dumping hoppers, which allow you to transport and dispose of heavy materials in a time-effective manner. They can be a great asset in a fast-moving working environment because every part of the process is automated, meaning you don’t have to rely on human interaction. Self-dumping hoppers are also self-balanced which gets rid of time wasted picking up after dropped materials.

Safe access platform

A safe access platform brings you closer to the action. It allows you to safely work at any height you need to and is much more secure than ladders. Not only that, it’s much easier to manoeuvre than say scaffolding, and is great when space is an issue and a cherry picker won’t fit, allowing you to work in a much more efficient way.

Single-Double Pallet Handler

Single-double pallet handlers allow you to effortlessly switch between handling single or double pallets in the blink of an eye. They are great for use in warehouses with high turnover/turnaround where large quantities need to be quickly maneuvered. Why take two trips to move two pallets when you can load two pallets side by side and take one trip?

Testimonials

Pym and Wildsmith have been working closely with H&F Fork Trucks for many years. Their service is excellent, ranging from prompt callouts to breakdowns through to the supply of new trucks. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Ian Pym, Operations Manager
Pym & Wildsmith

H&F Lift Trucks are a pleasure to deal with. All staff, Technicians, Sales and Directors have hands-on experience of all ranges of vehicles they supply. From initial assessments and listening to all users of a potential new vehicle requirement, they keep us informed of all aspects of specification and lead times through to delivery. Their maintenance service is superb – they organise suitable times around our busy working day with our Yard Managers. Any accidental damage or operator error faults are always discussed with me and dealt with fairly – not like some unscrupulous suppliers who seek to profit at every service visit! In a cut-throat market, where we are offered “good deals” a few quid cheaper every day, we are never tempted to stray.

James Hipkins, Managing Director

H&F have supplied us with all our fork lift equipment for in excess of ten years now, and have maintained it in accordance with our stringent operation requirements. During this time they have provided a consistently high level of service (including short term hire when required) whilst never failing to support us in a totally honest and professional manner.
