The main application of the fork positioner is the handling of pallets having different dimensions.
The possibility of changing the centre to centre distance, fulfils different specific needs of practically all the types of industry and this type of attachment is then getting more and more requested.
The possibility of shifting the forks represents a great step ahead in terms of safety and time saving. In facts, in many countries the limit of weights that can be manually handled is so low that a fork cannot be lifted and shifted without overtaking this limit. This is specially true for big forklift trucks, equipped with heavy and long forks.
The time saving offered by the fork positioner by eliminating all idle times, make possible to optimise the handling cycle of the pallets by quicker and safer operation.
