Specification of our new crane forks
As HTF Transport get more and more requests to move pallets with our hiab equipped vehicles. We felt the need to invest in a set of crane forks would be vital.
This attachment has been provided by www.pdqlifting.co.uk and comes with all the relevant certification.
The product is designed and manufactured using high quality steel to guarantee strength and safety in the workplace. The fork offers automatic compensation and adjustment of the center of gravity depending on the weight of the load.
The forks have been built to meet or exceed the regulations of ECC UNI-EN and ASME and come with the required labels, certificates and user and maintenance manual.
Please contact the team to discuss your requirements further and plan your next job.

HTF transport have recently been tasked by a new customer to lift pallets of paint material onto a roof of a superstore as part of the roof restoration process.
This was a perfect job for the crane fork attachment and one of our artic hiabs. The advantage of the crane fork attachment is the pallets can be loaded up to each other, where normally they need to be kept apart to allow slings to be fed through the pallets. This also makes the load safer, reducing the chance of movement.
As this was still a working supermarket providing the public with essential food and supplies HTF transport had a very small compound to work in but this didn’t stop the job from getting done.
Using the skills of our ALLMI trained operators and slingers, the job was completed safely and within the time frame set leaving one very happy customer.
This load also fell under ADR (transport of dangerous goods) an area which HTF are fully compliant for.
This is the type of feedback we love to hear “Will contact you directly again for the next job and will highly recommend your company to our Franchise network”.
