Rough Terrain Forklift Truck

If you are engaged in material handling or any activity that requires the lifting and transporting of loads particularly over loose surfaces, then no doubt you have seriously considered a rough terrain forklift truck.

As you know, a forklift truck is a vehicle that is used to lift and transport heavy loads. A standard forklift truck is typically used inside warehouses and factories. However, if you will be operating the forklift in an outdoor environment such as a road construction site or on a farm, then a rough terrain forklift truck will be better suited to job.

A rough terrain forklift truck is basically a forklift but it is specifically designed to perform outdoors. Rough terrain forklifts can be purchased new or used and are available to hire on a short term or long term basis.

Some Things To Consider When Buying A Rough Terrain Forklift

First, consider the task for which you are getting the forklift truck.

  • Will you be operating it indoors or outdoors?
  • What kind of terrain will the forklift be expected to navigate?
  • What is the load weight that needs to be lifted?
  • How high do you wish your forklift to reach?
  • Are your looking for a low cost used rough terrain forklift or a new forklift?
  • Would long term hire forklift offer you more flexibility?

These are just some of the questions that you need to ask yourself prior to choosing a rough terrain forklift truck.

Before committing to any purchase or hire contract make sure that the unit has been checked by a certified mechanic. This is especially important if you have decided to purchase a used rough terrain forklift. Opting to buy a used forklift can save you thousands of dollars, but it may cost you thousands in extensive repairs if you don’t buy it from a reputable forklift dealer.
