It means that you can turn the forks upside down for the higher reach. At the standard setting you have a 99" lift. There is a pin that can be removed to turn them upside down and then you have a 120 1/2" reach. They would still have the same 400 pound capacity in either position.

answer 2
The forks are "L" shaped and can be easily installed upside down for greater reach. The only weight restriction would be to make sure the floor is level and the center of gravity of the load stays vertically above the rectangle on the floor defined by the four wheels.

Question

how much reach?

I know the front 2 wheels are adjustable but how far? Can the forks extend 18" beyond the front wheels to lift item off of a platform. Thank you for the response.

The wheels on the Genie Lift are not adjustable so that the forks would extend past the wheels.

answer 2
The normal position of the front wheels is 28" in front of the rear wheels. Moving them behind the end of the forks would risk causing the unit to tip forward.

The Genie lift will not accept the Genie lift boom to be attached to the unit. The Genie lift booms will only mount to a fork lift.
