Forklift Boom, Jib, & Hook Attachments
Forklift lifting attachments and accessories are the perfect material handling solution for environments where an overhead crane is not available, an overhead crane cannot access a certain area, or where the use of an overhead crane is impractical or unsafe. Forklift lifting attachments allow you to convert a forklift into a single hook crane, a single or double hook forklift beam, or a forklift jib crane. In addition to lifting inanimate loads, forklifts can be equipped with a Porta-Platform that converts a forklift into a man lift.
Forklift jibs, booms, hooks, and beams are extremely popular in industrial manufacturing because everyone already has a forklift to which they can attach forklift accessories. These lifting attachments require less work and less money to design, manufacture and install than modifying an existing crane or installing a brand new one. They allow employers to operate the equipment they already have at maximum efficiency. Forklift boom, jib, hook, and beam attachments also increase worker safety by allowing fork trucks to securely lift loads that would otherwise be difficult for a fork truck to safely lift.
Here at Tri-State Rigging Equipment, we specialize in providing custom designed and fabricated forklift lifting attachments and accessories. In addition, we can provide you with any standard “off the shelf” forklift attachment. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, or if you don’t know exactly what you need, call or email our sales team to speak with a rigging product specialist.
Forklift Attachment Designs
Forklift lifting attachments come in a variety of capacities and designs that allow forklifts to be used in a multitude of lifting applications. Some of these designs include:
- Telescoping Fork Booms
- Pivoting Telescoping Fork Booms
- Reach Over Booms
- Carriage Jib Booms
- Drum Lifters/Rotators
- Drum Lifters/Dumpers
- Steel Drum Grippers
- Forklift Hooks
- Single Hook Beams
- Double Hook Beams
It is important to note that the rated capacity of all these fork truck lifting attachments will depend on the rated capacity of the fork truck itself. Trying to lift a load heavier than the rated capacity of the forklift will result in a tipped over and most likely severely damaged forklift. This means that the end user must contact the manufacturer of their specific forklift to determine the proper rated capacity.
