Forklift jib boom attachments are much less expensive than jib cranes and can perform almost all of the same tasks at a fraction of the cost and with less heavy equipment on premises.  Forklift jibs allow you to reach over obstructions to place heavy loads on roofs, elevated platforms, and decks.  You can use them to reach through windows and doorways to pick up loads from second and third story areas still under construction.  Forklift & fork truck jibs can also be used to load and unload flatbed trailers and trucks.  Many companies use them to suspend trusses and to laminate wood, and jibs can also be very useful when reaching over scaffolding for masonry work.  Overall, they are some of the most useful tools you can invest in for moving and handling equipment on a construction site.

Forklift & fork truck jibs can also be used to load and unload flatbed trailers and trucks.  Many companies use them to suspend trusses and to laminate wood, and jibs can also be very useful when reaching over scaffolding for masonry work. Every jib boom forklift attachment is made with two swivel hooks.  One hook is fixed at the end of the jib, and the other can be manually fitted to any position on the boom’s underside.  This allows you to pick up any load with two hook points.  Each hook is individually rated at either 4000 lbs. or 6,000 lbs, depending on the size of the model.  You can use one hook or two to pick up a load, but you have to make sure that the total weight of the jib and the load does not exceed the rated capacity of the jib as shown on the load chart for that extended or retracted position.

 

Easy Rack Fork Truck jibs attachments are intended for use on industrial lift trucks and rough terrain straight-mast or extendable-reach forklifts.   Forklift truck jib cranes install on the forklift by inserting both forks fully into the fork pockets.  The rear of the jib crane then seats against the back of the fork.  A safety chain wraps forklift carriage to hold it in place.

Maximum load capacity for forklift jibs in both the extended or retracted positions range from 1935-6000 lbs.  Ask a material handling specialist about load limits for your particular application.  Please remember as well that load capacity ratings are for the jib itself and not the forklift nor the maximum load that can be safely handled with a particular forklift.   Whenever forklift jibs, or any other attachments for that matter, are added to a fork truck, the new center of gravity created by the attachment, will reduce the lift capacity of the forklift.   See our page on “heavy duty jibs” for details on how to calculate these load limits, or, if you lack the time to do the calculations yourself, call a member of our staff.

 

Fork Trucks & Fork lift Attachment Safe Usage

Before using a forklift jib, be certain that you have properly secured it to the forklift with shackles and hooks.  Always double check to make sure that the screw pins are tight.  Double check too that your load limit calculations were done correctly, and take into consideration while doing so that rated capacities sometimes decrease when the boom is in a raised position, when the mast is tilted forward, or when the boom is extended with telehandlers. 

Never pull a load with a fork lift jib Attachment.  These Forklift attachments are designed for vertical lift only.  Always carry the load without letting it swing.   Any time a load is lifted, use extreme caution to avoid tipping over the fork truck.
