Side Shifters on a forklift is a mechanism that is controlled by the driver. It allows the load carried to be moved from side to side. It helps to reduce handling time and improve maneuverability. Side shifters are useful for when the forklift is operating in a tight environment and for positioning loads on racking without having to move the truck itself.
Forklift side shifters tend to help reduce damage to pallets, products and racks. It’s because side shifters slide easily from left to right (and vice versa) to align itself to the loads that are picked up. Helps when they are used to stack and settle the load into a rack too.
Side shifters tend to be faster in loading and unloading due to the added ability to easily align forks with loads to be mounted on to stacks. Labourers will not need to keep jockeying to get the correct entry position.
On top of that, side shifters also offers faster cycle times by laterally positioning forks as opposed to repositioning the entire truck. It helps to reduce wear and tear on the truck by maneuvering the truck less. Also, it helps increase maneuverability through tight corners by shifting the load from one side to another. It helps to avoid having to reposition the entire truck.
