Pallet Jacks Forklifts
Pallet jacks are small and can carry lighter cargo throughout smaller areas of the work floor. These forklifts can be manually driven by an employee or can be battery-powered. Battery-powered pallet jacks can benefit from a number of our safety and assistance systems.
These types of forklifts counterbalance their high cargo weights in the front of the vehicle with weights in the back of the vehicle. Counterbalancing forklifts don’t have extending arms because their primary function is to carry and move heavier cargo.
Side Loader Forklifts
Operators stand on the side of this type of forklift, rather than in the middle driver’s seat. Side loader forklifts can lift and unload cargo on the side of the vehicle, compared to the front loading of traditional forklifts, like counterbalance forklifts. Side loader forklifts work well for narrower areas of the work floor and can carry long objects like plywood planks.
Rough Terrain Forklifts
Rough terrain forklifts work best for outside work sites, especially those with unpaved, gravel, or dirt grounds. Rough terrain forklifts are usually more sturdy than other types of forklifts, especially indoor forklift models. They can tread smoothly over uneven ground and also carry bigger and heavier loads to prevent overbalancing.
Telescopic Handler Forklifts
Telescopic handler forklifts are built to reach cargo at greater heights. These forklifts are versatile because they fit pallet forks for forklift functions as well as operator buckets and more at the end of the arm.
Reach forklifts are similar to counterbalance forklifts, but have the added feature of a movable fork. Operators can move the forks of reach forklifts up and down so they can reach shelves and storage areas of different heights.
The last of the common forklift types we’ll review are industrial forklifts. Industrial forklifts are typically bigger than other forklifts and have an arm that extends like telescopic handler forklifts. Because of these features, industrial forklifts are best suited for reaching higher spaces and carrying heavier cargo.
