With our range of products from Ability Handling you can easily adapt your forklift so that it can incorporate the following impressive features suitable for every need.

You can load these up and use them for tipping or bottom emptying with either manual or automatic mechanism activation. Although this is usually supplied powder coated as standard in a high-visibility orange colour there is an option of other colours available.

This means you can reach and transport long and awkward goods at ease.
