Why hire and buy Rough Terrain Fork Trucks?
As the name suggests, rough terrain (or all-terrain) forklifts are designed for rugged surfaces. Unlike standard forklifts, they can tackle sand, mud, and soft ground without an issue. A rough terrain forklift can also drive over uneven or rocky surfaces without getting stuck.
One of the main differences between a rough terrain forklift and a regular model is the tyres. Instead of standard road tyres, an all-terrain lift will have larger tractor tyres. These are more durable and offer deeper tread for better traction.
Rough terrain forklifts also have a higher ground clearance than standard lift trucks. This design allows them to move without the undercarriage getting stuck on rocks, roots, outcroppings, and more. Many 4 X 4 forklift trucks for sale and hire are considered rough terrain models.
A rough terrain lift is a Class 7 vehicle. The most common style of lift truck is the vertical mast, which lifts straight up and down. A variable reach lift boasts a telescoping boom for greater range and flexibility. When it comes to rough terrain forklifts for sale and hire within UK areas like Leicester, Northampton, Birmingham, Nottingham, Warwick, Derby, West Midlands, and East Midlands, businesses can also find easily portable truck and trailer mounted options.
