Handsfree Group offer safety solution for transporters of Moffetts

Maneuvering with Moffetts Onboard If you’re a driver of a truck transporting a Moffett (truck-mounted forklift), you will already know the daily struggles – the main one being you need to reverse park your truck and then off-load your Moffett, safely… It’s challenging to see behind you from the driver’s cab, so how do you know if there is enough space? The Moffett invention in the mid 1980’s was revolutionary and where would the distribution industry be without it? 30+ years later, vehicle technology has advanced massively and Handsfree Group are pleased to say there is a range of technology solutions available, that help in maneuvering and reversing with Moffetts onboard.

The Challenges Safety is paramount in the world of distribution, transporting a Moffett safely requires great skill and concentration and can sometimes be extremely challenging. Rear and side visibility are essential when maneuvering a truck and even more so when the truck is transporting a Moffett. Drivers face handling blind spots when


doing so, hampering the operation of parking the truck whilst also leaving enough space to offload the Moffett safely. Without any technology to assist with this operation, the driver can waste valuable time by having to exit the truck cab to check the surroundings and then having to get back in the cab to finish their maneuver – and sometimes this can be necessary more than once.

The Solution Handsfree Group’s award winning engineer team, which offers nationwide MECP compliant installation coverage across North America, are able to supply and fit a dedicated backup camera system to the Moffett itself, to reduce the challenge of blind spots to the rear of the truck. A system extension option of side cameras can be integrated into the same cab mounted monitor, for further improved visibility. The system includes a weatherproof quick disconnect allowing the driver to quickly and efficiently connect and disconnect the camera mounted on the Moffett to the monitor in the cab of the truck. By having this system installed, risk of accident and/or injury is mitigated immensely for the driver, the vehicle and any pedestrians within close proximity to the truck. Contact Handsfree Group today and start the journey to improved Moffett transportation safety.
