Although forklifts are fairly easy machines to operate, it is recommended that all drivers receive proper forklift training and certification. For a quick refresher on forklift safety, refer to our Forklift Safety Checklist  prior to operating.

While they may look like cars, forklifts drive differently being that they utilize rear-wheel steering, which helps maneuverability in tight quarters. While steering, there is no caster as in traditional vehicles, making it unnecessary to apply steering force to maintain a constant rate of turn.

The operator should never use the forklift as a personal lift unless wearing the proper harness and safety equipment. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's specifications posted in the cab of the forklift. All forklifts are rated for loads at a specified maximum weight capacity. Failure to follow these guidelines can result in damage to the machine or injury to the operator.

Our fleet of forklifts are from well-known manufacturers like Komatsu, Genie, Hyster and Lull. Remember, we also have used forklifts for sale and we also do forklift repairs and service.

Counterbalanced vs. Rough Terrain vs. Pallet Jack Forklifts
counterbalanced forklift rentals

 Counterbalanced Forklift


Counterbalanced forklifts are the most common type of forklift.
They can be gas, diesel, or propane powered. Some are dual powered, utilizing both fuel and propane. Their counterbalance weight design, with a weighted rear, offsets the weight being
lifted on the front forks.

Genie Rough Terrain Forklift telehandklers

Rough Terrain Forklift

  Rough terrain forklifts have large pneumatic tires, are usually
diesel powered, have larger masts, and have extended reach.
They have a boom that raises and extends and have outriggers
that stabilize the forklift on soft or uneven ground. They are larger and more powerful than regular internal combustion powered fork trucks. We also carry 360 degree rotating telehandlers.

palley jack rentals non motorized

Hand Pallet Jack
(Pallet Truck)

  Our Pallet Jacks are non-motorized tools used to move pallets weighing up to 5000 lbs. They usually come equipped with 48"
forks. Pallet jacks are easy to use, only requiring the operator to
line up the forks with the pallet, pump the handle to raise the
forks and pallet, and guide the load by the handle.
