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



There are certain activities that are nearly impossible to do without the right tools and equipment. Large and laborious outdoor industrial activities, for instance, require certain miscellaneous equipment in order to get the job done.

Some of these indispensable misc equipment include rough terrain forklifts and aerial lifts. Forklifts, aerials lifts and other industrial equipment are often necessary in projects involving landscaping, mining and construction works.

Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough terrain forklifts are specially designed to withstand rugged conditions such as rocky or uneven ground. They are very useful in heavy duty outdoor applications and well suited in industrial and construction sites.

Rough terrain forklifts are also known as class 7 forklifts and are classified as lift code 1 lift trucks. They have powerful internal combustion engines that allow the vehicles to easily navigate inclines. Some models even sport 4-wheel drives for precision control and greater maneuverability.

rough terrain forklifts are powered by diesel but they can also run on gasoline, propane and compressed natural gas.

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 unit 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.

Because they are subjected to heavy loads and harsh conditions, care should be taken when purchasing used rough terrain forklifts. When looking for a heavy duty industrial forklift for sale online, it's vitally important to know you are dealing with a reputable company that stands behind the products they sell.


Aerial Lifts

Aerial Lifts


Aerial lifts or personnel lifts allow workers to access hard-to-reach areas such as the upper floors of a multi-storey building, ceilings and the top levels of storage racks.

Aerial lifts provide workers with a stable platform when working at very high altitudes. Window cleaners, painters, construction workers and maintenance personnel can safely do their job without worrying about losing their balance while riding an aerial lift.

Aerial lifts come in many sizes and capacities. Small lifts are very useful when working in tight areas where space and movement are restricted. Larger lifts require more space but they can also carry more personnel.

As with all industrial equipment, proper work safety procedures should be strictly enforced when operating aerial lifts and rough terrain forklifts. These misc equipment should be run with care and caution and should only be operated by trained personnel.

As is true of rough terrain vehicles, used personnel industrial trucks for sale should only be purchased from reputable dealers like who inspect and classify all the equipment they put on the market.
