Rotating and Sideshifting Forklift Attachment
Project: FDR Forklift Attachment, New York, NY
Client: Gottlieb Skanska
Zieman Engineering designed this forklift attachment to erect new beams weighing up to 25,000 pounds. against an existing
structure roof in extremely tight quarters. The forklift attachment was capable of horizontal rotation on a turntable as well
as 6 inch horizontal sideshifting in either direction for final alignment. Sideshifting was achieved through hydraulic cylinders
connected to the forklift hydraulic system.
