Sometimes we get customers that are more than happy to use there current fork set up, they just have issues with loads sliding about, or safety requirements to have loads held safely if working in close proximity to pedestrians. Situations like these are perfect for a compact solution such as load stabilisers and grapples.
The design philosophy behind them is to apply clamp pressure to the load from the top using the current forks. We've got various takes on the standard load stabiliser such as incorporating a small hook on the front that ensures product can't slide off the front in sudden stop situations. The grapple side of product is for more loose product such as piping that requires the pipes to be pulled towards the hell of the fork, not just held down.
Load stabilisers are one of our more popular product and as such we've designed some really beneficial 'quality of life' improvements into the design. Our standard load stabiliser series utilises linkages to provide a really compact design that can be kept out of the way when not in use. It also offers a simple sequence hydraulic system requiring only one service on your truck. Sequencing is the usage of a special cartridge to control what hydraulic component is activated in which order. By doing this we can automate the process.
