Commonly Used Fork Lift Attachments
Commonly used fork lift attachments typically include a wide variety of attachments that serve a wide variety of purposes. This article will discuss a few of the more common examples which include side shifters, carton clamps, slip sheet attachments, multipurpose clamps, carpet poles, fork conditioners, roll clamps, and many more. Once you have finished this article you will have a thorough knowledge of each of these add-on parts.
The side shifter is one of the more commonly used fork lift attachments and it is a hydraulic attachment that allows for the lateral movement of the forks and backrest. This way the operator may place a load without having to move the truck in many cases. There is also the rotator which aids in the handling of tilted skids and special needs for the handling of certain materials. As the name suggests, it allows the tines to be rotated, which can also make dumping containers easier as well.
If you are someone who is constantly loading and unloading cargo of various sizes, then an automatic fork positioner may be one of the used fork lift attachments you have been waiting for. It is a hydraulic attachment that moves the tines together and apart without the operator having to constantly get in and out of the truck to reposition them manually.
Another one of the more useful attachments you may want to consider when looking for used fork lift attachments is the roll and barrel clip attachment. This piece of machinery is made to squeeze any material you are carrying, such as a barrel or paper roll, to make it easier to carry. Sometimes it is paired with a rotator as well, which can be used for a variety of purposes, such as to insert vertically stacked rolls of paper into the horizontal feed of a printing press.
Poles are also used fork lift attachments that are most often found in environments such as carpet warehouses. They can be used instead of forks to pick up and move large rolls of carpet quickly and efficiently. The clamp attachment is used to open and close around an object the operator is carrying which squeezes to pick it up.
It is most often used for the transportation of boxes, cartons and bales. The slip sheet attachment acts in a similar fashion except it uses a slip sheet to load off the forks. The drum handler attachment, as the name suggests, is used for the loading and unloading of drums by using a spring loaded jaw that grips the top of them.
These are just a few examples of the many different optional attachments that you will run into when looking at various used forklift attachments [http://www.usedforkliftguide.com/used-fork-lift-attachments.html]. The better you can understand the different attachments that are available, the easier your job will become as you can find the perfect attachment to help you move many different types of objects.

LSI Option Now Available for JLG® Telehandlers
An LSI Override Switch can be used if the operator chooses to continue to operate the telehandler within the load capacity limit. This feature does not deactivate the red lamp or audible alarm, but will allow prevented hydraulic implement functions to be activated again for up to 30 seconds, or until stability of the telehandler improves.
LSI operates in two modes– active and passive. The LSI system is always active, not just when the vehicle is stationary and placing loads. The telehandler can be switched to passive mode to allow it to be operated with the boom retracted without the function cutout or audible alarm activating when the red lamp illuminates. This passive mode is indicated by a yellow lamp in the cab.
LSI is available as an option for JLG models: 742, 943, 1043, 1055, and 1255.
