Rough Terrain Forklifts
Rough terrain forklifts have a tough all-weather exterior and more lifting power than pneumatic and cushion tire forklifts. The large tires not only protect from puncture damage, they keep the forklift from sinking into loose gravel, mud and other extreme conditions.
For lesser outdoor jobs across surfaces that are uneven, consider a pneumatic forklift for sale.
Uses of Rough Terrain Forklifts
Classified as Class 7 forklifts by OSHA, rough terrain forklifts are used in work environments that other forklifts are not designed to withstand. Rough terrain forklifts are covered by a protective cage and have a high clearance, meaning they can simply drive over most obstacles in forestry, construction, mining, pipelaying, brickwork, and other applications across difficult, uneven landscapes.
Benefits of Rough Terrain Forklifts
The rugged tires of rough terrain forklifts are designed to retain excellent traction across rocky and unstable outdoor environments. Independent torque is supplied to each tire through 4-wheel drive to prevent tire slippage. Deep tire grooves improve the forklift’s stability through extra ground coverage.
However, a superior outdoor tire design is not the only reason why rough terrain forklifts have the most accurate steering in the harshest of environments. A counterbalance at the back is calibrated to prevent spinouts in mud, ice, snow and other elemental hazards. Rough terrain forklifts can also generally handle greater speeds than other forklifts without tipping over, getting the job faster than the rest.
Extra Features to Consider
Extra features of a rough terrain forklift can include:
- Vehicle management systems – Easily keep track of maintenance and repairs.
- Side-shifting fork positioner – Adjusts the horizontal spanning of the fork.
- Rustproof model – The waterproofing of parts that are sensitive to corrosion.
- Foot control pedal – Operator can control the forklift handsfree.
