The Oblast and the Upland both easily attach to most Skid Steers and feature powerful C8 magnets that are permanently charged ensuring consistent and long-lasting performance.

Top 3 Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Skid Steer Magnetic Sweeper

1. What terrain will the magnet be operating in.

Depending on the area of operation you intend to use a sweeper on, different products may be best suited to your needs. Our Oblast model is perfect for moderate terrain as its curved edge will glide over obstacles without sustaining any damage to the magnet. If you are working in severe terrain with large potholes and bumps the Upland is the magnetic sweeper for you. The Upland’s suspension and ground tracking system maintains a set sweeping height over severe conditions.

2. How Large are the forks of the Skid Steer that will attach to the magnet?

The fork attachment on your skid steer must have forks that are a maximum of 7” inches wide on 24” inch centers to work with the Oblast model, while the Upland can fit on forks that are up to 5.5” inches wide on 22” inch centers. Be sure to verify the adjustability and width of your forks to ensure proper fitment.

3. Where will you unload accumulated debris?

Both the Upland and the Oblast feature easy clean-off functions that let users raise the magnet over a bin or dumpster and release debris by pressing down on one of the debris tray release handles affixed to both sides of the unit. This will require another person to release the debris tray while the magnet is raised over the desired receptacle. Keep in mind who can help the operator of the magnet to clean it off once sweeping is completed.

Rough Terrain Heavy Duty Fork Mounted Magnet!

$9,399.99 USDSelect options

(all prices in USD)

Available in 1 size:  UPLAND 56”

With ground tracking four link suspension

The UPLAND is a fork mounted magnetic sweeper that can pickup any ferrous debris such as: nails, screws, wire, discarded fabrication material, bolts, nuts, pins, screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. The debris can easily be dumped into a bin using the flip down stainless-steel debris tray.

Heavy duty construction of steel and stainless, with UHMW bushings on all pivot points of the UPLAND ensures a long life for the UPLAND and a solid feel on every motion.

The UPLAND features 10” of vertical suspension travel and 360 degrees of pivot movement rolling on 16.5” flat proof tires. This allows operators to set the UPLAND at a sweeping height of 1 – 4” inches which will be maintained over rough terrain by the ground tracking system.

Upward clamping fork pockets provides greater contact of the fork pockets with the forks and therefore provides greater stability to reduce magnet “slippage”.

Comes in one 56” inch magnet sweeping width, and easily mounts to forks up to and including 5.5” inch wide forks on 22” inch fork centers.  See CAD drawings for further details.

Heavy Duty Fork Mounted Magnet

Available in 1 size: Oblast 52″

With pivoting debris tray for easy debris removal

The OBLAST forklift magnet is a fork mount design that allows you to use your forklift to pick up ferrous metal debris and then lift the OBLAST over a disposal / scrap bin for easy removal by using the easy flip down pivoting stainless steel debris tray.

Heavy duty construction of steel and stainless, with UHMW bushings on the rotating stainless steel debris tray for long life and a solid feel.

Ground strike protection is provided by the angled front and rear of the stainless steel debris tray which reduces the width of the bottom flat section and therefore limits magnet contact with the ground, and prevents damage if the magnet does contact the ground because there is no hard edge to “catch” on the ground.

Upward clamping fork pockets provides greater contact of the fork pockets with the forklift forks and therefore provides greater stability to reduce magnet “slippage” on the forks.

Comes in one 52” inch magnet sweeping width, and easily mounts to forklift forks up to and including 6” inch wide forks on 24” inch fork centers.  See CAD drawings for further details.
