What is Hydraulic Fork Positioning?

Fork positioning is the capability of a forklift to independently move its tines (forks). Traditionally the adjustment of the forks are done manually - whereby the forklift operator has to manually move the tines. Hydraulic Fork Positioning automates this task, thus increasing your forklift's productivity.

The increase in productivity is visible through

  • Decreased fuel consumption and forklift wear,
  • A reduction in damages to pallets and stock,
  • A safer work environment due to proper weight distribution,
  • Faster loading and unloading times, and most significantly,
  • A reduction in workplace injuries as forklift tines are very heavy.
