The forklift adapter kits are designed to work with the FCHW13 and FCHW18 Forward mobile column lifts. The system does not require any additional floor space and comes with a red caster cart for easy storage.

FREMONT, CA: Forward Lift, a division of Vehicle Service Group (VSG) and Dover (NYSE: DOV), has released a new range of frame-engaging adapter kits for its mobile column lifts. The attachments make it easier for technicians to lift and service a larger range of forklifts, including reach and pallet trucks.

"Our customers depend on Forward's mobile column lifts to service their fleets' trucks, and this new adapter kit allows for their expanded use, adding more flexibility to an already versatile product," stated Doug Spiller, Director of Heavy-Duty Product Management, Forward Lift.

Conducting regular and thorough inspections is one of the most critical parts of forklift safety. For inspections and repairs, the frame-engaging movable column lift adapters provide better access and vision. The mobile column adapter assembly provides a secure means to acquire under-vehicle access and keeps technicians off the floor, whether it's for inspections, seal or tyre replacements, or steering, caster, and pin replacements or adjustments.

"Forward Lift has been manufacturing quality lifts for more than 50 years, and we remain focused on continuing to produce equipment that helps our customers increase productivity, reduce unit downtime and maximize safety standards," stated Spiller.

The forklift adapter kits are designed to work with the FCHW13 and FCHW18 Forward mobile column lifts. The system does not require any additional floor space and comes with a red caster cart for easy storage. The 880-pound adaptor assembly engages and captures the forklift within itself fast and efficiently for enhanced stability. There are also 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch leveling spacers included in the kit.
