A side shift is the most common attachment to a forklift. It allows the forklift to provide a better positioning by moving its forks horizontally left or right. It is generally used in stacking and de-stacking pallets making this work easier and quicker.
Single – The single mast has just one stage with a very limited lifting height. This type of mast is usually seen in outdoor applications, not common on forklifts but mostly used at pallet stackers.
Duplex - The two-stage mast is more common, having free lift available. They are most commonly used indoor, while the biggest advantage of two stage mast forklifts is that they provide a great visibility. It is also a cheaper type of mast.
Triplex – With a lower closed height and higher total lift height, the three-stage mast is the most frequent type of mast, generally used in warehouses and trailers or containers for stacking pallets. This is the most popular mast for many applications, although a little more expensive.
Quad - A four-stage mast provides the biggest height possible combined with the lowest possible building height, reaching more than 7 meters due to its three sets of moving rails. Forklifts with this type of masts are usually seen in special applications, such as warehouses where very high stacking is required.
