Lifting the load

15 June 2015

Contact Attachments has provided a family run formwork contractor with a high strength adjustable forklift hook in a bid to help move heavy goods.

Murform is now using the product to help remove the pressures of transporting its products – ranging from formwork, rebar and concrete – around its site by clamping on to its existing forklift.

Rob Ashman, purchasing manager at Murform, explained: "We were really pleased with the adjustable forklift hook when it arrived at our site – it was a high quality product which was available at a very competitive rate. It clipped easily onto our forklift and could be positioned anywhere on the length of the fork, meaning larger, longer and different products could be fastened on and lifted just as easily.”

The forklift hook can be adjusted to suit a position anywhere along the length of the forklift fork, therefore providing flexibility when it comes to handling loads of different sizes or where there are different reach requirements.

"Customer service from the team at Contact Attachments was second-to-none,” Rob added. "The product was delivered on time and looked exactly how it did on the website. We’d recommend their services to anyone interested in streamlining their business operations, and we look forward to working with them again in the near future.”

The lightweight adjustable forklift hook also comes with a shackle and two large ‘T’ screws, enabling it to be tightened and secured to the underside of the forklift for optimum stability and safety. Five different models are available with varying weight loads, from FMHA-1.0 which can handle a capacity of 1000kg, to the FMHA-5.0 model, able to handle 5000kg.

Jason Cadman, technical sales director at Contact Attachments, explained: "With over 40 years’ experience in the sector, we have built up an enviable reputation in providing high quality forklift hooks, each of which are manufactured in-house and come fully ‘CE' marked with a Certificate of Conformity to meet health and safety regulations.”
