Erie, Pa. - Automation Devices, Inc. (ADI) has received many positive accolades for its Fork Rhino fork lift attachment, forcing ADI to expand the product line further to include several unique models.
Created by Kevin Smith,ADI President, the Fork Rhino allows a user to eliminate the single fork method of moving trailers which can result in fork sag and uncontrolled fork swing. “We’ve received such a tremendous response from Rhino customers on the design and usability of the Fork Rhino, that we’ve designed several custom models to meet more specific needs of our customers.” says Smith.

Specialty models include:
