Vestil Manufacturing Corporation, manufacturer and distributor of industrial material handling equipment, has dedicated itself to the continuous improvement of items just like the recently developed fork truck reel attachment. Designed to provide a helping hand when maneuvering heavy, awkward sized reels; the device is constructed of steel with a powder coat finish for long term use while maintaining a smooth finish. The units simply attach to the forks of the lift and include two quick clasp chains for additional security. By placing the support bar through the opening of the spool, the forklift can then utilize the attached fork hooks to lift and maneuver the entire load to the desired location. When not in use, all components are compact in size for limited storage space consumption.
