Our range of Big Bag Handler

Big bags are everywhere: construction sites, farms, factories etc. And yet their handling, most of the time on forks, leaves a great risk: falling, destabilization of the truck etc. Our Manitou big bag handler offers real safety at work, improving the efficiency of big bag handling with ease!

Big Bag Handler

Risks of handling big bags on forks are::

  1. Danger of the big bag falling and being crushed when the sharp angle of the forks damages the big bag straps,
  2. Having to raise the mast of the truck high, which threatens its stability, or the telescopic arm, which limits not only stability but also right-hand visibility,
  3. Lose money and time when damaging semi-trailers with the boom head of the telescopic trolley, which is raised high to lift the bags,
  4. Carrying a suspended load with an equipment/accessory that is not designed for this purpose.
