Forklift, rough terrain truck, and telehandler operators regularly need to lift and safely move a wide variety of material using the same machine.  Removing the fork tines to install other carriage mounted attachments can be a time consuming and cumbersome job.

Founded in 1969, Arrow is one of North America’s most respected suppliers of fork tines and attachments for all types of material handling equipment.  Over the last decade, Arrow has utilized on our attachment design expertise to produce a wide variety of fork mounted attachments such as booms, buckets, carpet poles/coil rams, trailer spotters, lifting bars, fork spreaders, and more.  Our newest additions to this product line are self-dumping hoppers.

With no costly adapters, and no installation tools required, Arrow fork mounted attachments are simple to pick up, simple to secure, simple to use, and universal in fit. Built-in fork pockets allow the operator to drive up and slip the forks into the attachment, where they can then put the machine in park and quickly secure the attachment to the machine.  In no time at all the operator is back in the driver’s seat and ready for the next material handling job.
