New PowerMount quick release system to interchange forklift attachments
Designed by B&B Attachments, PowerMount is a unique system that enables the truck driver to quickly change from one hydraulic attachment to another in just 90 seconds. The PowerMount system allows for attachment change to be completed without the need for an engineer, guaranteeing a fast, easy and safe way to interchange forklift attachments.
This popular system is now supplied to a number of major supermarket chains, construction sites and logistics companies throughout the UK. PowerMount has become indispensable for companies that frequently handle various types of loads. It allows one forklift truck to use several different attachments, providing the best possible utilisation of a forklift fleet.
Forklift trucks fitted with dedicated attachments can restrict the use of the truck to only a few hours a day, effectively paying for the truck to sit idle for large amount of time. PowerMount has the potential to severely cut fleet costs as it allows the workforce to operate with fewer trucks. This system gives the option to use the same truck for various lifting jobs and to change attachments in seconds.
PowerMount is also popular for rental fleets during demanding periods. B&B service and support all rental attachments, offering options for either short or long term hire rentals, which can start from one week and last as long as your requirement demands.
The PowerMount system also enhances on-site safety, as it ensures operators are more likely to select the right equipment to perform each task, rather than compromising by using whatever attachment the truck has fitted at the time for quickness. Using an incorrect attachment can result in damage to the load and attachment.
