Commonly Used Forklift Attachments


Commonly used fork lift attachments typically include a wide variety of attachments that serve a wide variety of purposes. This article will discuss a few of the more common examples which include side shifters, carton clamps, slip sheet attachments, multipurpose clamps, carpet poles, fork conditioners, roll clamps, and many more. Once you have finished this article you will have a thorough knowledge of each of these add-on parts.

The side shifter is one of the more commonly used fork lift attachments and it is a hydraulic attachment that allows for the lateral movement of the forks and backrest. This way the operator may place a load without having to move the truck in many cases. There is also the rotator which aids in the handling of tilted skids and special needs for the handling of certain materials. As the name suggests, it allows the tines to be rotated, which can also make dumping containers easier as well.

If you are someone who is constantly loading and unloading cargo of various sizes, then an automatic fork positioner may be one of the used fork lift attachments you have been waiting for. It is a hydraulic attachment that moves the tines together and apart without the operator having to constantly get in and out of the truck to reposition them manually.

Another one of the more useful attachments you may want to consider when looking for used fork lift attachments is the roll and barrel clip attachment. This piece of machinery is made to squeeze any material you are carrying, such as a barrel or paper roll, to make it easier to carry. Sometimes it is paired with a rotator as well, which can be used for a variety of purposes, such as to insert vertically stacked rolls of paper into the horizontal feed of a printing press.

Poles are also used fork lift attachments that are most often found in environments such as carpet warehouses. They can be used instead of forks to pick up and move large rolls of carpet quickly and efficiently. The clamp attachment is used to open and close around an object the operator is carrying which squeezes to pick it up.

It is most often used for the transportation of boxes, cartons and bales. The slip sheet attachment acts in a similar fashion except it uses a slip sheet to load off the forks. The drum handler attachment, as the name suggests, is used for the loading and unloading of drums by using a spring loaded jaw that grips the top of them.

These are just a few examples of the many different optional attachments that you will run into when looking at various used forklift attachments [http://www.usedforkliftguide.com/used-fork-lift-attachments.html]. The better you can understand the different attachments that are available, the easier your job will become as you can find the perfect attachment to help you move many different types of objects.

How forklifts can make construction and renovation projects easier

Projects such as constructions and renovations need a lot of skills and expertise from all who are involved. From engineers, architects to construction workers, having a smooth and fluid movement from planning to execution will ensure that the projects will be done easier. Completing the project on time and within budget is also something to keep in mind.

To do this successfully each time, it is important to have the right tools and the right equipment to go along with having the best people to do the job in construction and renovation. This makes sure that all the processes needed for the projects will go as planned. Among the best equipment to have for construction and renovation projects are forklifts. Here, you’ll learn about the top benefits of having one and using them to make the job much easier.

What are Forklifts?

A forklift is a kind of machinery that is best used for lifting and moving around heavy objects around. Construction materials are one example of things that need to be moved from location to location in a construction site. Having a forklift allows the construction workers to move the needed materials from one place to the next with ease.

Doing so increases the productivity of the workers while decreasing the time spent on such tasks. It also benefits the workers because with forklifts, the body doesn’t have to be put on so much strain because of lifting heavy materials and other objects on site.

Types of Forklifts

There are at least three kinds of forklifts. Each of these types serves a number of various purposes. One is the internal combustion forklifts which are used mostly for outdoor functions. They can either be powered by propane, diesel, or gasoline. And as such, they emit exhaust gases so it is not recommended to use them indoors. For construction, this can be an option since construction sites are open spaces.

The second type is electric forklifts. These are best used indoors since they rely on batteries for power. Electric forklifts are also reasonably cost-effective as compared to the first type. It is best used for warehouses and factories.

The third type is manual forklifts. These are non-motorized so you cannot expect them to be as versatile as the first two. Their load capacity is quite low compared to the gas-powered and electric forklifts. For the best performance, gas-powered forklifts are recommended for construction projects. If cost is a factor, then electric forklifts can also do the work.

Benefits of Using a Forklift

Added Safety

Before forklifts were invented, most of the materials used for construction and renovation projects were lifted and moved using a system of pulleys, cables, and ropes. Also, sheer human strength was necessary to do the task. Construction workers relied heavily on their own capacity to lift materials from one spot to the next. This made the site very unsafe for workers. By using forklifts, less risk is involved when it comes to performing such tasks like lifting and moving materials.

Easy to Maneuver

Workers will find that it is easy to learn how to use a forklift. It is compact and not very intimidating and complicated like other heavy equipment machineries. Turning in different directions can be done with ease, and forklifts can fit even in tight areas where the materials should be placed. Also, most forklifts can handle about 35,000 pounds of weight. Smaller ones can accommodate up to 5,000 pounds. Choosing the kind of forklift depends on the kind of projects that you handle.

Speeds Up the Process

Having a forklift not only makes moving things around easier, it also makes the overall process faster. In construction projects, it’s a race against time. Things have to be done within the given time frame or else the clients will be disappointed, to say the least. Time is money and if things take time, it will also cost more. So, having a forklift around during construction or renovation can greatly increase the speed of the process when working on such projects.

One-time Investment with Long-term Benefits

Once you find a forklift for sale and have assessed that the unit you’re looking at is good and fits the needs of your project, you should definitely acquire one. It may cost you money but consider it as a one-time investment but with long-term benefits. Even used forklifts for sale can do the job if your budget is below what’s needed for a brand new unit.

Final Thoughts

Having a forklift can certainly give you plenty of benefits. Your construction and renovation projects will have a smoother process. It will be much easier for the construction workers to get things done as well. And you can spend less time for each project because you know that having a forklift means that things can be done much easier and faster.

JLG Compact Crawler Boom Hits Homerun at Camden Yards



The foul poles at Baltimore’s Camden Yards serve two functions. As transplants from the old Memorial Stadium, they bring more than three decades of prior history to the now 22-year-old baseball stadium. As vertical extensions of foul lines on the field they help umpires determine whether a fly ball is fair or foul during gameplay. For this reason, it is important that the poles are regularly painted and highly visible for day and night games. But the crisscross ironwork poles are 70 feet tall, which can present a challenge to those tasked with painting them.

Last year, Maryland Stadium Authority turned to Rentals Unlimited, Inc. in Clarksburg, Maryland, and the JLG® X700AJ Compact Crawler Boom for help. According to Jim Joyce, sales manager of the equipment and truck rental company and long-term JLG customer, painting the foul poles challenged his company to recommend a piece of equipment with a footprint small enough to fit on the ball field’s warning track and offer enough reach to access the top of the poles.

“Running a machine across the actual playing field was out of the question,” he said. “So, we measured the warning track and were confident the Compact Crawler Boom would easily fit on the track and provide access to the poles.”

Boom’s compact size meets challenge
With a width of just 3 feet 3 inches, a 440-pound platform capacity and non-marking tracks, the X700AJ proved to be the perfect choice for the ballpark application, enabling contractors to apply two coats of yellow paint top to bottom on each of the two poles.

“Everyone who saw the machine before we put it to work was surprised by its capabilities,” said Joyce. “I think it was the boom’s size that threw them. It weighs just 7,000 pounds, but extends to 70 feet, and it’s easy to operate.”

The compact size and vertical reach of the X700AJ has made it a profitable addition to the fleet at Rentals Unlimited. “The crawler is a unique piece of equipment. Its compact size means it’s easy to transport and once on the job site, it will go through 39-inch doorways and fit into other hard-to-reach areas. The machine is self-leveling, so if it’s on uneven ground, it will level itself. And, it’s able to climb up and down steps, with rubber tracks that won’t harm sensitive flooring or landscaping.”

In addition, the X700AJ is environmentally friendly with an optional Lithium-ion battery for cleaner, greener operation. Dual power onboard—gas or electric engines, accompanied by an electric AC motor—are standard to reduce noise and emissions in public spaces. Other features include a hydraulic jib for greater reach, rotation of platform and a zero-turn radius with counter rotation.

Versatility leads to interesting assignments
The versatility of the machine has taken Joyce and his company on some interesting assignments beyond the Camden Yards application. “We took it down a flight of steps and through some doors at a facility that housed an Olympic-size pool in the Washington, D.C., area,” he said. “Once inside, we drove the boom down inside the empty pool and used the leveling feature so we could safely position the machine on the sloped bottom of the pool. This provided access to the roof about 60 feet above the pool and enabled workers to replace several rusted roof panels.”

Joyce described another application in which the machine climbed a long flight of stairs and drove through a 42-inch door in a large medical facility. “And then there was the large retail store in Virginia. The Compact Crawler Boom was the only piece of equipment small enough to fit through the front doors and still offer enough reach to allow workers to wash the large windows positioned well above the doors. This machine just opens up a whole avenue of opportunities for the rental business, and its success seems to have a snowball effect.

“That’s the story here,” Joyce continues. “Expand your fleet with the purchase of a Compact Crawler Boom and open up new doors. And the great thing is, they don’t have to be big doors – just 39 inches and you can move right through them.”
