Forward Lift has created a new line of frame-engaging mobile column lift adapter kits for use on Forward’s mobile column lifts. The attachments allow technicians to more easily lift and service a wider range of forklifts, such as reach trucks, pallet trucks, and more.

One of the most often overlooked aspects of forklift safety is regular inspections. The frame-engaging mobile column lift adapters allow for better access and visibility for inspections and repairs. Whether using it for frame inspections; seal or tire replacements; or steering, caster, and pin replacements or adjustments, the mobile column adapter assembly provides a safer way to gain under-vehicle access and keeps technicians off the floor.

The forklift adapter kits are designed to work in tandem with two Forward mobile column lifts. The system requires no dedicated floor space and comes equipped with a red caster cart for easy storage. The adapter assembly, which weighs 880 pounds, quickly and easily engages and captures the forklift within itself for added stability. The kit also includes 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch leveling spacers.
