Fork-Mounted Rug Poles

The alternative to the Carriage Mounted Rug Pole is the Fork Mounted Rug Pole.

The Fork Mounted unit offers the ultimate in convenience as mounting is as simple as driving the forks into the unit. R & R offers two types of Fork Mounted Rug Poles. Both types have advantages and disadvantages. On one unit, the carpet is moved while under the forks. On the other unit, the carpet is moved while at the end of the forks. The Fork Mounted models offer the same pole as is used in our Carriage models.

    End of Fork Model

  • When not in use, unit is stored safely on floor
  • Design at end of forks makes it very easy to use
  • Load capacity of truck is reduced beacuse of large lost load area between carriage and end of roll
