One of the UK’s leading providers of forklift attachments is helping its customers prepare for what is expected to be one of the coldest winters the UK has seen in years. Contact Attachments is already gearing up for what is set to be a hugely busy time as it provides specialist winter products including its snow plough and telehandler attachments, to help its customers remain operational throughout the icy and snowy months ahead.
The company provides a variety of snow plough attachments to suit a wide range of applications, with the Fixed Blade permanently angled to move snow to one side, and the Adjustable Blade allowing users to adapt their direction of sweeping. In addition, it offers a Sprung Loaded Blade which absorbs shock and minimises the risk of damage to the plough by considering hidden objects such as raised manhole covers.
Contact Attachments also provides a ‘V’ shaped pedestrian plough for smaller-scale applications, as well as Telehandler snow ploughs, ideal for large and heavy-duty environments such as warehouse yards, car parks and roads.
Dave Manuel, Technical Sales Director at Contact Attachments, said: “Winter is fast approaching, and with parts of the country having seen snow already this year and the met office promising the coldest winter in 10 years with lots of heavy snow fall, it’s vital that companies consider their snow management plans.
“Heavy snow fall is becoming more of a threat each year, and with many people ill-prepared, it’s sadly all too common for businesses to come to a complete halt. Having a snow plough attachment at the ready to remove risk factors that the colder conditions bring means companies can eliminate the worry and financial pressures of not being able to function properly throughout the winter.”
All of Contact’s snow ploughs are quick and easy to fit both on and off forklifts via zinc-plated safety screw clamps, and as they have no moving parts, benefit from low maintenance and servicing costs.
The company has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from Newtown, Mid Wales, for more than four decades.
