Why did they make a fork lift that doesn't really lift?

Some people may be content to just move a pallet from one place to another, but I have a feeling that some of us may like the ability to truly lift those pallets as well. I was disappointed that the Brutus pallet fork does go up and down very high. I can't lift pallets to put on shelves. Is anyone else slightly bothered by this?

Its a SxS not a forklift. Brutus' pallet forks are more for moving pallets around the property than it is about warehouse management...

Yeah If you would want to do some lifting and stcking I would invest on a real forklift. But the Brutus accessorie is just made to take on some light duties.

Very true, it can be used for very minimal things. One thing to keep in mind when buying this or anything else is keeping your purpose in mind. But at least the Brutus can do a range of things.

An attachment that would allow to lift pallets high up would be $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and require a separate hydraulic system.

also consider the weight of the Brutus, you DO NOT want it to tip forward. A real fork lift has a ton of solid weight to it, which helps.

That is very true you do need the weight to counter balance. I think that is a solid answer for the reason of why the brutus would have a lift system that goes too high.

I think that you need realize that the Brutus is a multi-purpose vehicle, but because of that it isn't the optimal vehicle for everything. Do you really need to stack pallets that high on your farm?

You can only do so much even with the add on attachment. You can expect a compromise and here is where the it is. You can move around the palets but not stck them. At least its there right.
