What are crane and forklift attachments?

Crane and forklift attachments are specialised to lift and move a wide range of materials, from large and heavy construction materials to personnel. They can improve productivity by reducing load moving times and fuel consumption and protect items from damage.

Before you attach crane or forklift accessories, you need to check that they are designed for the equipment you're using and don't exceed its load capacity. It's also essential that operators are fully trained and qualified to use the equipment and that appropriate safety checks are carried out on your site to avoid dangers such as overturning and overhead electrocution.
