• Concrete precast handling

    Hyster range of counterbalance high capacity forklift trucks is the right truck for this tough application

    Modern methods of construction rely on concrete precast to a great extent to help reduce construction time, promote sustainable development and reduce cost. Floor slabs, wall units, and stair elements are produced off-site in a factory and erected on-site to form robust structures, ideal for all repetitive cellular projects.

    Due to the size, shape, and weight of such elements the handling process of precast can represent a challenge for the truck and operation, but there are many Hyster® solutions.

    One popular option is a multiple fork attachment fitted to a tough Hyster® truck which provides a wider base to transport concrete elements of more than 6 metres, like large, heavy slabs. The attachment also helps to improve stability, which in turn reduces stress on the truck itself and contributes to greater operator comfort.

    In addition, other attachments such as wide carriage with double or multiple forks, and spreaders are also available to support handling of wide concrete slabs and other precast.
