Agriculture & rough terrain

Tough forklifts for tough working conditions. 

Agricultural work in settings like on farms can include an endless list of heavy lifting. These can include the moving and loading of heavy hay bales, bags of feed and fertilizer in varying sizes and weights, farm equipment parts, crates of produce, farm fencing and building materials. Luckily, there are forklifts made specifically for use in the agricultural setting, where terrains are rough and forklifts need to be versatile, dependable pieces of material handling equipment.

Why rough terrain forklifts?

Terrain Adaptability

Rough terrain forklifts are designed to operate in challenging outdoor environments like fields, orchards, and agricultural settings. They feature rugged tires, higher ground clearance, and durable suspension to navigate uneven, muddy, and rough terrains that would be difficult or impossible for traditional forklifts to handle. 

Stability and Balance

Agricultural tasks involve lifting and moving bulky loads, like bales of hay, bags of feed, and farming equipment. Rough terrain forklifts are built with a wider wheelbase and lower centre of gravity, enhancing stability and balance, which is important when lifting heavy loads on uneven surfaces. 

Higher Weight Capacity

Rough terrain forklifts generally have a higher weight capacity compared to traditional forklifts. This increased lifting capability allows agricultural businesses to handle larger loads, such as large produce bins or farm equipment, more efficiently and effectively. 

Excellent Traction

Rough terrain forklifts are equipped with four-wheel drive capabilities, providing superior traction in challenging outdoor conditions. This feature allows them to navigate through wet and slippery surfaces, steep inclines, and uneven terrain, ensuring operational continuity even in tough conditions. 

All-Weather Operation

Rough terrain forklifts are designed to function reliably in all weather conditions, including rain, snow, and mud. Their durability and weather-resistant features ensure that farm tasks can continue without significant disruptions due to weather changes.
