New Fork Attachment Available for The Mule™

In an effort to meet customers’ specific applications and unique needs, Beyond Products has announced the availability of a new interchangeable fork attachment for The Mule, the material handling and assembly industries’ first affordable, all-in-one portable hand lift-truck.

The new fork attachment is designed for applications such as hauling tubs, totes, hoppers, rolls of materials, wooden crates, short pallets and turns the Mule into a mini-forklift for material handling. The fork attachment is available as a separate accessory and is easily installed utilizing The Mule’s existing coupler.

The stock forks are 18 inches long and have been designed to match the length of typical totes and tubs. For safer moving and handling, the steel made forks feature embedded wheels that allow payloads to easily slide on and tip back.

The multi-purpose, compact Mule is designed to transport and lift a maximum of 350 pounds of material up to 48 inches high. The Mule can also double as a work positioner and customizable work bench.
