Sideshifters are the most common attachments encountered on forklift trucks. Depending on the capacity of the truck Sideshifters allow lateral shift of the load from ± 100 up to ± 160 mm. This saves time and increases manoeuvrability. With the so called Container Sideshifter even larger lateral sideshift stroke is possible.
