A new spreader beam by Jescraft allows stone handlers to move loads quickly and safely with a forklift. Specially designed for stone fabricators who need to transport material in and out of buildings or make tight turns in a crowded yard, Jescraft’s spreader beam features fork-access slots that provide a secure way of engaging and lifting the beam with a forklift. This creates a more mobile and maneuverable alternative to hoisting with a stationary overhead crane. The beam is also ideal for loading and unloading containers.
