Forklift Mast

Powerful forklift mast attachment
AVANT SA developed a forklift mast attachment for the AVANT loaders to be utilized on rough terrain for modular loading on broiler chicken farms. The mast has a capacity of up to 2500 kg and 3m loading height. The loader boom is not used for lifting ; therefore the lift capacity of the loaders can be drastically improved. The loader is just pushing along the mast with load in a stable operation. The mast attachment can be changed to another attachment in seconds which makes for a much more cost-effective solution than traditional forklifts.
Modular loading on broiler farms is a proven handling system for transporting birds from the farm to processing facilities or onto transporting trucks . It has already been successfully implemented in many jurisdictions around the world. Modular loading improves loading efficiency, bird welfare during handling and transport, meat quality and food safety. The equipment required to move the modules at the farm site is quite specialized. It requires a low profile (mast height, cab height) to ensure that it can safely enter the barns without hitting equipment or the structure. It must be very maneuverable (tight turning radius) to work in restricted areas. It must also have the lift capability to handle the fully loaded modules which weighs more then 1000kg. The forklift mast can also be utilized to load heavy loads exceeding the loader lifting capacity, for example pallets of bricks.
