TYPES OF FORKLIFT ATTACHMENTS
Attachments can be used with forklifts to make the work easier and add additional functions. The following are the most commonly used forklift attachments:
Fork Extension / Sleeves
Ideal for safe and stable handling of loads which are longer than the forklift forks
Forklift Sideshifter is one of the most popular attachments. The side shifter operates in conjunction with the forks. They allow the operator to shift the forks to the left and right without leaving their seat. The operator can reposition the forks to the left or right to pick up a load that might not be perfectly aligned with the forklift. This saves wear and tear on the forklift.
Fork Positioner / Mover
Forklift Fork positioner allows the forklift operator to automatically adjust the distance between the forks quickly to fit different pallet sizes without leaving their seat.
360 degrees Rotator
Forklift Rotator has forks attached to a rotating apron that can turn between 180 degrees and 360 degrees. These attachments are most often used where bins or containers are stored and transported. The contents are carried in the bin and dumped into another container.
Paper Roll Clamp / Fork Clamp / Bale Clamp
Clamps allow the operator to clamp onto the sides of an item (ie. roll of paper) without damaging or crushing the product. These clamps can be used in a variety of applications. Clamps are the attachment of choice when a load is not transportable by pallet.
