The Tarp-hd-1000 Tarp Loader Forklift Attachment is a fork mounted unit that allows the operator of a lift truck to safely spread a tarp over the top of a loaded trailer.
The tarp spreader utilizes prongs to attach the tarp grommets so that it will help evenly spread the tarp as the operator drives forward,
The unit can be utilized as a left hand spreader or a right hand spreader. The operator simply drives the forks into the fork pockets in the opposite direction.
T-Handle locks ensure that the unit will not slip off of the forks once tightened by the operator.
A safety chain prevents the unit from accidentally falling off.
