Push pull attachments offer shippers/warehouses an alternative to pallets. Push pulls are able to slip under and hold loads on slip sheets (cheaper than pallets). These attachments are ideal for specific loading operations that don’t require pallets yet still have significant loading needs. If you have sufficient loading demands but are searching for a way to ax pallets from operations, you might want to consider whether a push pallet attachment could be right for your work site.
Another material handling attachment that can greatly affect productivity is the rotator attachment. Rotators are attachments that can be added to uprights which enable your machine to invert or dump materials. Rotators are often used on job sites to dump scrap, waste, liquids, minerals, boxes with loads like fruit/grains/vegetables and other materials. There are both mechanical and hydraulic options available.
The sideshifter attachment allows machines to move their carriages in a side-to-side motion. The expanded ability to move is ideal for many functionalities. It’s particularly suitable for stacking and job site functions that require precise carriage positioning. Sideshifter attachments are typically available in models that fit most forklift carriages.
One material handling attachment that can be used for a variety of purposes are clamps. Clamps are durable, user-friendly, multi-faceted and effective attachments that are frequently used to pick up and move products. Clamps have the potential to help companies decrease unsafe work environments, increase efficiency and decrease damages to products, while eliminating the need for multiple workers to accomplish the handling task.
Another attachment that is frequently chosen for material handling functionalities are fork positioners. Fork positioners improve the accuracy of forklift operations, reduce damage to pallets/products and improves overall safety. Fork positioners are a hydraulic alternative to repositioning forklift forks, allowing equipment operators to adjust positioning from where they sit. This is especially ideal for those moving a variety of types/shapes of pallets.
A useful material handling attachment are multiple load handlers. Multiple load handlers enable users to lift multiple pallets at once. Perfect for warehousing and plant operations requiring a lot of load handling involving pallets, multiple load handlers can create a more productive and effective operation. Multiple load handlers feature double sideshifters, single-double pallet handlers and are capable of loading and unloading up to six loads.
