RHA Reel Handler Attachment

Reel Handler Attachment


The Reel Handler Attachment (RHA) can be used for lifting, transporting, and loading reels into racking designed for storage or dispensing of product from the reel.

Transform any forklift of sufficient capacity into a specialized reel-handling device. The Reel Handler Attachment fits snugly onto lift truck forks, with an additional safety chain to ensure full engagement. The tapered ends of the Attachment allow fully loaded reels to roll gently into the containment stops.

The front reel stop can be removed for easier loading. Once the reel is loaded onto the Attachment, the front stop locks firmly into one of five positions for reliable containment for reels of various sizes. A fixed anti-slide stop at the rear of the Attachment ensures stability during lifting and movement.

A durable powder coating resists scratches and abrasions prolonging the working life of this equipment. Its smooth finish also prevents damaging product during loading and unloading.

Reel racking can open up a lot of valuable warehouse square footage by utilizing vertical space. The Reel Handler Attachment allows you to take full advantage of racks, effortlessly accessing reels with a distance limited only by the length of the lift truck’s mast.
