Our Specialist Handling equipment
What We Do
Whitney Engineering is a well-established UK based skip manufacturer and supplier of
forklift attachments and lifting equipment.
As the UK distributor for Secatol we supply their high quality range of concrete skips
and crane lifting equipment. We also manufacture our own range of forklift tipping skips
designed for the UK market.
Secatol provide a wide range of crane lifting gear but are best known for their range of concrete skips. The Secatol concrete skips have a long tradition of market leading innovation and they have developed a number of mechanisms for the precise pouring of concrete. From the wheel gear gate to the patented TI gate, Secatol have innovated to provide gates with high precision and minimal leakage across their range of concrete skips. Other popular products in their range include brick forks, plasterboard forks, pallet forks, boat skips, tipping skips, block grabs, pallet forks and an extensive further range of material handling equipment.
Forklift tipping skips are one of our most popular products. Ideal for both the construction and waste industries we offer a range of UK made metal skips and tipping skips from our best-selling WTS skips to our heavy duty auto-tipping, auto-locking HDI range. The tipping skips can be supplied with options including rubber lining, crane lifting lugs, castors and a whole range of bespoke options. This allows the products to be used as skips bins and construction skips.
For telehandlers, we have developed our patented TeletubTM telehandler tipping skip. The TeletubTM is designed to automatically lock onto the telehandler forks. The skip is then emptied by tilting the forks. This allows the driver to remain in their cab increasing site safety. The TeletubTM has proved popular on construction sites where there is an increasing focus on separating waste, an ideal use for tipping skips.
Our range is completed by material handling equipment for both forklifts and cranes. We are official stockists for Probst Handling Equipment. Probst is a world leader in the development and manufacture of handling and laying systems for concrete products. Our most popular products include block grabs, for handling packs of bricks and blocks, and kerb grabs, for handling curb stones and larger masonry.
