Technical data


The KAUP Fork Positioner T160 offers an excellent view to the fork tips and the load as well as a favourable lost load centre. Therefore the achievable residual capacity is very good. The qualities of this attachment are particularly effective when different sizes of loads are regularly transported or different kinds of transportation are used - for example in logistics.


  • For moderately heavy operation
  • Excellent residual capacity
  • High stability with optimal tare weight
  • Very good visibility conditions
  • Valve block sideshift serially
  • Use of longer forks possible
  • Original forklift trucks useable
