Abstract

A fork-lift carrier for transporting long heavy loads, having adjust width for accommodating various size loads and for compacting the carrier for storage. The adjustable width allows the carrier to negotiate relatively narrow passages. A high degree of maneuverability is achieved by utilization of independently driven and steered traction wheels. Raising and lowering of loads is accomplished by motorized operated forklift mechanisms disposed on either side of the carrier. Operation of the carrier is controlled by a handheld control unit. A load carrying arrangement for a lift truck includes two spaced apart hollow upright elongated members which are mounted on a mounting element that is displaceable mounted on the frame of the truck, and at least one load-engaging attachment which has at least one load-engaging portion and two mounting portions introducible into the interiors of the corresponding upright members through the open ends thereof to mount the load-engaging attachment on the upright members and thus on the mounting element. Fixing elements, such as pins or bolts extending through aligned bores in the upright members and in the mounting portions, position ally fix the mounting portions within the corresponding upright members. The attachment may be constituted by a pair of fork prongs each of which has a load-engaging portion and a mounting portion which is introducible either into the open upper end or into the lower end of the respective upright member, or a container spreader whose load-engaging portion is adapted to engage a container and whose mounting portions are introducible into the upper open ends of the upright members & turn on 180-degree motion.
