Rough Terrain Forklifts & Aerial Lifts: Indispensable Misc Equipment for Large Scale Industrial Operations – Part 3


Misc equipment like rough terrain forklifts are very useful in material handling activities.

Rough terrain forklifts are notable for their large, treaded pneumatic tires which are similar to the tires in trucks. These tires are made of durable rubber and filled with compressed air. The air in the tires protects the misc equipment from shocks and jolts. Its pneumatic tires also prevent the forklift from getting stuck when traversing soft, muddy ground.

Rough terrain forklifts are faster than electric forklifts and also have greater lift capacities. These industrial equipment can handle loads of 5,000 lbs to 30,000 lbs or even greater.

Most rough terrain forklifts contain telescoping booms that allows them to reach higher areas. A telescopic forklift can reach heights of up to 35 feet making them very useful in construction sites and mining areas.
