Hydraulic Attachments

There are times, however, when the use of a hydraulic system is required. For customers who require this type of system, we work closely with B&B Attachments. Established over 40 years ago, B&B Attachments is the leading hydraulic forklift truck attachment company in the UK and Ireland. Some of their most popular attachments include:


BlockMaster Image smallThe BlockMaster range has severely reduced handling and loading times for concrete and clay products.

The range of one to four pack handling devices ensures secure and reliable handling of multiple packs in one single lift. The range of three and four pack handling devices ensures secure and reliable handling of multiple brick packs in one single lift.

The Push Pull attachment offers cost effective solutions to ensure optimum performance and maximum productivity when handling materials on slip sheets.

This attachment is easily connected to a conventional forklift truck for efficient palletless handling and can be swiftly discounted to return to handling pallets. This enables efficient handling of palletless materials in applications such as beverage handling, general cargo handling, bagged goods and fruit and corrugated box handling.

It allows a pallet to be quickly broken down or built up by clamping layers and can be adjusted for a wide range of products including boxed and frozen goods, glass and plastics containers, tinned products and plastic trays.
