The Mule, from Beyond Products, has been upgraded. The all-in-one lifter, stacker, transporter, and work bench now comes with a fork attachment, which means the Mule now can haul tubs, totes, hoppers, rolls, wooden crates, and short pallets, explained David Prud'homme, sales manager. The new fork is an easy-to-attach accessory and is 18 inches long. The Mule, which can be folded into a work bench for easy storage, can lift up to 350 pounds. "Last year was a very good year," Prud'homme said. "2009 will be even better."
