Forklift attachment quick release

PowerMount equips lift truck operator to change from one hydraulic attachment to another in 90 seconds. System allows for the cycle to be completed without the need for an engineer, guaranteeing a fast, easy and safe engagement of forklift devices. Dedicated attachments can restrict use of a forklift truck to a few hours a day, the company contends, whereby owners effectively pay for equipment to sit idle for long periods.

PowerMount has the potential to cut fleet costs as it allows the workforce to perform various lifting jobs with fewer trucks. It also enhances on-site safety, product engineers note, as it ensures operators are more likely to select the right device to perform each task rather than compromising by using whatever attachment the truck has fitted at the time.
