Masterhitch Europe Ltd have been asked by VolkerFitzpatrick Ltd to bespoke manufacture fork carriages to fit their telehandler. As well as the fork carriages, the skilled team also produced a set of fork extensions in order to complete the task at hand.
The fork carriages created for VolkerFitzpatrick weighed 1000kg. As you can imagine, for an attachment this size we had to bespoke manufacture it to suit their requirements. Not only that, we also had to ensure that the fork carriage would fit into a shipping container. It would then be shipped out to the Falkland Islands for their project.
VolkerFitzpatrick were using a Manitou MHT10180 telehandler to move containers around on site. Their standard fork carriage supplied was not wide enough to pick up the containers originally. The team at Masterhitch created fork extensions to ensure the containers were supported properly.
WHAT SIZE MACHINE WILL IT FIT?
We understand that every machine is different and that companies have various requirements. Which is why we can bespoke manufacture fork carriages to suit you. Our team will work directly with you to discuss your needs, ultimately providing you with a fork carriage to suit any machine.
WHAT ARE FORK CARRIAGES USED FOR?
Fork carriages are generally an all-rounder attachment that all companies should be using. They are commonly used for:
- Agricultural work
- On a construction site
- In the quarry
- Everyday work task
When materials need to be lifted and transported elsewhere, fork carriages are very convenient and easy to use.
The benefit of using fork carriages is that you can pick up and drop off tines like any other attachment. Saving the operator time, instead of having to remove them manually.

WHY IS IT WORTH INVESTING INTO TELEHANDLER ATTACHMENTS?
Telehandlers on their own are versatile, easy to use, and are generally a useful machine to have on any construction site. Investing in telehandler attachments, will leave you with the world at your fingertips.
If you invest in a range of buckets, forks, and even cages, your telehandler could work as efficiently as having 3 different types of machinery on site! Not to mention the money and time that will be saved when you choose to invest in telehandler attachments instead.
A telehandler will have more on and off-road capabilities when you invest into various attachments. View our website today to view all of our current attachments.
