Title: Lift truck vehicle, with a positioning means

Abstract: A lift truck vehicle (F) with a lift device (4) which comprises a positioning device (6) which is inclined with respect to the vertical. The positioning device (6) serves the setting up of the carrier fork (5) (or related device) independently of the lift device (4). The positioning device (6) is arranged over the front axle (9a) of the vehicle (F). The lift mast (3) is mounted laterally displaced behind the front axle (9a). The invention thus achieves optimal viewing conditions, particularly on loading the carrier fork (5) at half the height, and simultaneously an improved position of the center of gravity of the vehicle (F).
