Fork positioners can easily handle loads with varying widths to help meet complex material handling demands. These attachments enhance forklift versatility by allowing operators to control fork distance and handling capacity from the driver’s seat. Fork Positioners also significantly reduce the risk of accidents by providing the correct support base for the load.

The demands on material handling tasks are increasingly more complex. OEA-KAUP Fork Positioners accommodate these requirements, as they increase the flexibility and profitability with more handling capacity of every forklift truck.

Especially when the width of the load changes constantly. For this reason Fork Positioners are the most frequent attachment found on forklift trucks after sideshifters. And OEA-KAUP offers a large variety of Fork Positioners - suitable for every transportation and operational task.

OEA-KAUP Fork Positioners are also, in some cases, available as integrated version with even better residual capacity.


Model SSFPB:

Starter series of KAUP Fork Positioners offer excellent value for money. The attach-ment is designed with hydraulic parallel movement with two cylinders and is based on the P5 sideshifter with fork positioning.

  • QUICKSEAL-sideshift cylinder design for quick exchange of seal kits without tools

  • Hydraulic synchronisation of fork adjustment

  • Drillings in carriers for accommodating different fork widths

  • Greasable, highly wear resistant EASYSLIDE sliding pads with excellent sliding characteristics

Model SSFPSN2:

Inexpensive, simple Fork Positioner with independent sideshift and absolutely symmetrical fork adjustment via positive synchronism by a chain. The original forklift truck forks can be used. The construction width and therefore the opening range of the attachment is not dependent on the width of the fork carriage of the forklift truck. Also available without sideshift function.

  • Sideshift function end-of-stroke slow-down SOFTSTOP and roller guided lateral displacement SMOOTHROLL

  • Asymmetrically drilled stop blocks for locking of forks with varying widths

  • Construction width and adjusting range are not dependent on the width of the basic fork carriage – construction widths of more than 118” possible

  • Original forks can be used ( 63” long - up to 95” possible with wider fork brackets)
