A forklift is a machine that is used in lifting and moving heavy items or pallets of items. Forklifts can be used for a variety of jobs around a warehouse or construction site. Forklifts are a vital part of most big jobs because without them many man hours would be lost moving supplies and equipment.
Forklifts come in many sizes and they are usually classed by how much lifting power they have. Many companies around the world produce forklifts but our favorite are the AUSA forklifts that we import from Spain. We have a full line of AUSA forklifts available to rent and we also offer AUSA forklifts for sale here in the United States.
Forklifts have a huge fork in the front of the machine that is positioned underneath any item that needs to be lifted. The fork is attached to a mast that allows the fork to move up and down. This allows a forklift to move its load up onto a rack or up to a second floor where workers may need supplies.
There are many specialized types of forklifts that are designed for very specific purposes. They have forklifts that can maneuver in narrow halls or aisles and Stacking forklifts used to make stack of materials or items.
