Move trailers quickly and safely with your forklift

Forklift Ball Hitch Attachments

Hands-free Attachment


No chains or pins needed

Are you tired of needing to get a truck or tractor every time you need to move a trailer in your shop?

We believe every manufacturing business, RV plant, and woodworking shop deserves an efficient, fast,
and safe way to move job trailers and RV’s by using their forklift!

Without a Safe
Ball Hitch:

  • You need a separate truck or tractor to move trailers
  • You could drill holes in the forks for a hitch, but this is unsafe and not OSHA-compliant
  • Chains or pins are usually required
  • The operator needs to leave the seat to fasten the hitch

With Our
Ball Hitch:

  • Don’t get off your forklift with a hands-free and self-locking attachment
  • No chains or pins required
  • Move multiple trailer styles: bumper hitch, 5th wheel, and gooseneck trailers
  • Increased stability and better trailer control when moving

How could a quality forklift ball hitch increase your shop’s efficiency?

Ball Hitches That Let Your Forklift Do More!

When it comes to moving a trailer or RV at your shop, you don’t want an extra truck or trailer that is only used for this purpose.

We believe you should be able to do it safely and quickly with your forklift!

That’s why Sidekick Attachments teamed up with the manufacturing experts at Iron Bull Manufacturing to bring you a forklift ball hitch that is safe, efficient, and fast.

Sidekick Attachments understands the importance of getting the best value out of your forklift and the need for a fast and safe way to move trailers, such as bumper-hitch, 5th wheel, or gooseneck. Drilling a hole in your fork can lead to a bent fork, pose safety risks, violate OSHA compliance, or waste time due to the operator having to dismount the machine to attach the hitch. This can leave you feeling frustrated and considering purchasing a truck or small tractor for moving trailers.

However, we believe that every small manufacturing business, RV plant, and woodworking shop deserves a safe, efficient, and quick way to move trailers and RVs by using their forklift.

We understand the challenges and safety concerns that come with not having the proper attachment or equipment to move trailers. That's why we have created an efficient forklift ball hitch that is self-locking, has an easy fork entrance, and can be customized to individual applications. With our extensive experience in forklifts and manufacturing, a 15-day satisfaction guarantee, and a 90-day warranty, you can be assured that you're getting the best and safest forklift ball hitch.

Purchasing our hitch is simple: find the hitch that fits your forklift and machine specs, place your order, and we will package your product properly to ensure it arrives safely and without defect. By using our forklift ball hitch, you can enjoy the versatility and increased functionality of your forklift when moving trailers safely.

Our forklift ball hitch is a great addition to most manufacturing and maintenance facilities. The strong steel construction allows for long-term use, even in harsh conditions. To use the hitch, slide the forklift forks into the unit and secure the safety chain to the forklift. The hitch is then ready to be attached to the desired equipment.

Our forklift ball hitch comes with standard features such as strong steel construction, a bright finish for clear visibility, a tong load of approximately 1,500 lbs, and a push capacity of 2,000-7,500 lbs depending on the ball size. A chain is also included to secure the forklift.

Don't worry about damaging your fork or wasting time on unsafe or inefficient methods of moving trailers. Instead, purchase our hitch today and make your forklift more versatile with a forklift ball hitch. You'll discover a safe and quick way to move trailers, especially with our self-locking feature.
