Spreader Beam Adapters for Forklifts, Cranes, & Hoists

FormPak’s spreader beam adapters, made uniquely for Super Sacks®, make handling big bags safe, efficient and easy.

These heavy duty spreader beams allow an operator to quickly and easily lift the bulk bag by the lift loops for unloading, filling, stacking, and loading trucks.

If you’re looking for a tough I-beam spreader bar, durable stainless steel spreader beam, or crane spreader bar, check out our lineup of lifting adapters below.

This bag lifting adapter, also known as a spreader bar, is fabricated from a one quarter inch thick, three inch square tube steel. It has two, six by four inch fork pockets, as well as four labyrinth style lift loop connections to ensure positive attachment of bag to adapter.

The primary benefits of using this adapter are time savings and safety. When trying to attach bags to forklifts, you will find that the operator will have to get on and off the forklift multiple times to get the bag properly attached.

And there is risk that the fork ties are too short and we’ll cut or break the lift loops setting up the potential for the bag to fail and fall. The bag adapter also features a unique pin arrangement that ensures the bag can’t come off the forks when breaking or running the forklift downhill.

Hanging a bag directly on the forks will not provide this type of safe secure retention. With the Bag Lift 100-FA, attaching the bag is a one step process. The operator simply hovers the unit over the bag and can attach all four lift loops, then return to the forklift. You can now lift and transport the bag in a safe and secure manner.
