Heavy-Duty Forklift-Karrier to lift and pour a drum with your forklift. Capacity: 2000 Lb. (907 kg).


Modify fork truck nameplate information to reflect capacity of fork truck with Morse attachment. Fork truck capacity can be substantially lower than the original rated capacity, as adding an attachment tends to move the center of gravity of combined truck and load forward.

See Operator's Manual for Center of Gravity Dimensions to Calculate Lost Load on Your Fork Truck
