Underslung Scoops are an ideal alternative to a loading shovel allowing your forklift to become a more universal asset. The design brings the load closer to the Forklift reducing the load center and in turn making the combined length of scoop and truck shorter, which is a benefit when working in tight spaces. Ideal for the movement or loading of loose materials such as sand, gravel, top soil.
