Contact Attachment Telehandler Transformation

Date: 09/06/2017

By: Jason Cadman


The UK’s leading forklift attachment company has helped an Anglian-based water company to streamline its manual handling operations.

Contact Attachments was called upon by Anglian Water, the largest water and water recycling company in England and Wales by geographic area, to supply one of its Telehandler jibs to support the team’s day-to-day lifting of heavy items including motors and pumps.  

The lifting jib is part of Contact Attachments’ dedicated Telehandler range, which has been specifically designed to fit to existing machines and lift heavy and awkward loads, converting them into a mobile lifting crane as and when required. The jib suppled to Anglian Water was designed and manufactured to reach 1800mm and lift 1tonne, and was fitted with integral Quick Hitch brackets, allowing the team to connect it to its JCB Telehandler.

Dave Manuel, Technical Sales Director at Contact Attachments, said: “We’re thrilled to have worked with the Anglian Water team to provide a suitable product to help the team’s lifting requirements.  Telehandlers can be an expensive piece of equipment, which is why we’re continuing to invest in the development of products which allow users to convert them easily into a crane which they require, from lifting beams and hooks, to big bag handlers, pallet fork carriages and sweepers.

“This range is becoming one of our most popular and we’re committed to continue providing customers with solutions for their material handling challenges, where the main machine is a Telehandler. All our equipment comes fully tested to CE standards and meets the latest health and safety legislative requirements.”

Tristan Read, Assistant Treatment Manager at Anglian Water, commented: “We were extremely pleased with the quality of the lifting jib the team at Contact Attachments supplied, and it was exactly the product we were searching for. Our entire lifting operations have been made easier thanks to the lifting jib, and the team who use it were impressed with its build quality and robustness. Due to the length of the attachment, we can now reach further than the forks on our JCB Telehandler, making our lifting work much better.”

Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from its base in Newtown, Mid Wales, for over 40 years and is recognised as the quality leader of truck attachments in the UK.
