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.
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.
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?
