Forklift attachments provide enhanced convenience and functionality in many workplace environments. They can particularly come in handy when dealing with long objects or large pallets that need to be lifted and moved with a forklift truck. At Team Systems, our selection of forklift accessories includes fork extensions, drum handling attachments, bag lifter attachments, pallet puller attachments and several others. With warehouses located in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane, we are reliable providers of industrial forklift accessories throughout Australia.
Where You Can Use Our Forklift Attachments
Given that these accessories attach onto forklift trucks, they can typically be used in any environment that employs forklifts to assist in manual handling tasks. Some of these include being used in warehouses, factories, docks, construction sites, stock rooms and more. With our forklift attachments, your employees can conveniently and safely add a whole new layer of practicality when using forklifts.
Our Range of Forklift Accessories
At Team Systems, our forklift accessories are available in varying capacities, dimensions and uses. Depending on the environment you work in and your intended application, it is important that you choose a forklift attachment that suits your workplace’s conditions.
Our Fork Extensions are perfect for increasing the length of your forklift’s forks when needed. With their welded steel construction, our forklift extensions fit onto forks up to 5cm thick and are specially made to suit most forklifts. They are also each equipped with a steel retaining strap that prevents the extension from sliding off the forks during use, enabling you to securely carry out the tasks you need to do. Additionally, some of our fork extension models can reach extended lengths of up to 244cm.
Drum Handling Attachments
Team Systems has multiple forklift attachments that are designed to accommodate for drum handling applications. For example, our CCA15 Drum Carrier Rotator – Drum Lift & Tilt converts your forklift into a drum handler and enables you to easily lift, transport, raise and tilt loaded drums. Suitable for 210 litre/55 gallon 57.2cm diameter drums, this drum carrier rotator attachment can handle up to 680kg of steel drums. Furthermore, it has a 30:1 ratio and has a 10’ pull chain loop that provides you with control from the driver’s seat. Moreover, our NG20 Double Drum Lifting Clamp is a simple mechanical forklift attachment made for safe lifting, picking up and releasing of 205-litre steel drums. With the ability to handle one or two drums simultaneously, this drum lifting clamp attachment ensures maximum convenience in the workplace.
Bag Lifter Attachments
Bag lifter attachments like our AR-N1000 Big Bag Lifter provide an economical way to handle single bags. With a capacity of 1000kg, this forklift lifting attachment offers a durable solution to handling heavy-duty bags. We also have our AR-P2000 Bulk Bag Lifter, which has a capacity of 2000kg and is suitable for lifting bulk bags by crane or bridge crane.
Pallet Puller Attachments
Pallet puller attachments like our ASA10 Double Scissor Action Pallet Puller are used to pull pallets and slide heavy crates to the edge of the dock or truck. They have self-cleaning heads, as well as a variable jaw width that securely grabs pallets and automatically releases when needed. With a scissor action length of 762mm and a pallet weight capacity of 2273kg maximum, this pallet puller attachment is a strong selection for any industrial workplace.
Additional Forklift Accessories
Apart from the forklift accessories mentioned above, we also have forklift jib attachments such as telescopic fork-mounted jibs, fork hooks and steel containers available. All of these can be attached to your forklift trucks for improved convenience and functionality.
Ensuring Your Safety with Our Forklift Attachments
When using forklift attachments, there are a few safety measures you can follow to best preserve the security of your employees and your workplace. Firstly, prior to their use, it is vital that all employees are appropriately trained on how to use forklifts, as well as on how to fit, operate and remove any attachments they may need. Secondly, it is required that forklift fork extensions do not exceed the lengths of the forks on which they are installed by more than 50%. Since the centre of gravity has been shifted and there is more weight being placed in front of the fulcrum point of the forklift, it is recommended that you travel at a slow speed and gently make turns when working with fork extensions. Finally, you should always verify that the data plate on the forklift allows for the use of an attachment. By following these precautions, you can best maintain the safety of your employees when using forklift attachments.
