SafetyLiftinGear recently supplied one of our fork truck attachment to Bristol's award winning visitor attraction, Brunel's ss Great Britain. 

The LiftinGear 2 tonne fork truck attachment was used to allow a fork lift truck to operate like a crane by providing a central lifting point.

Being tested was a topsail yard that was 22mtrs long and 500kg in weight.

The yard was held at height with weights at each end for a period of time to ensure it was balanced and capable of holding its own weight once fixed aloft on the main mast as part of a project that will see the ss Great Britain's mast configuration as it was when she was launched in 1843.
