Combi Skip

Product Description

Designed to simplify the holding, movement and disposal of material in confined areas with the unique ‘4 way entry’ base. The skip is supplied as manual operation as standard, but automatic tipping at high level can be achieved by ordering the conversion kit allowing the forklift / tele handler driver to empty the skip without leaving the safety of his seat.

Approximate lead time: Approx 2-3 days

Health & Safety

  • The manager of the department or section where the attachment is to be used must be responsible for ensuring the operators are fully conversant with the attachment, its operation, maintenance and that the thumb screws are fully tightened.
  • Ensure both the truck and attachment are capable of handling the intended load and its contents.
  • Operators must keep clear of the mechanism whilst in operation.
  • Ensure the safety lock mechanism is engaged until the emptying operation is required.
  • Do not drive into the fork pockets without retracting the thumb screws.
