Orion quick-change carriage

Orion Heavy Fork Lifts have incorporated the Orion Quick-Change carriage as a standard feature on all models, including the 160,000 lbs. capacity 160K model.

The Orion lineup all feature the availability of full-power fork positioners (to position the forks without the use of hard labour) and the ability to side-shift maximum capacity loads for (almost) pin-point accurate load placement (both features improving safety and saving time and money).
