What Are Rough Terrain Lifts?
Sometimes referred to as all-terrain lifts, rough terrain lifts are some of the largest of their kind. Rough terrain forklifts are designed to traverse uneven, rocky surfaces while transporting a heavy load. Primarily, rough terrain lifts are utilized outdoors. This is due to their size, tires, and weight capacity.
What Class is a Rough Terrain Forklift?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) divides forklifts into seven classes. These classes, which range from I to VII, are based on the forklift’s usage and fuel type. A rough terrain forklift is considered Class VII, the highest class.
What Are The Different Types of Rough Terrain Forklifts?
There are three types of rough terrain forklifts: telehandlers, rotating telehandlers, and straight mast forklifts. Each of these types of forklift is intended to work in various kinds of terrain and construction sites. Below, we’ve gone into detail about the different types of rough terrain forklifts:
- Telehandler Forklift – Also called telescopic handler forklifts, these forklifts are equipped with a telescoping boom. The telescoping boom enables the forklift to pick up and place heavy loads. It can do this at various distances. These forklifts offer high lift heights compared to other forklifts.
- Rotating Telehandler Forklift – Also called roto telescopic handler forklifts, these forklifts are popular due to their ability to lift heavy weights to great heights while rotating on a turntable. The rotating telehandler can rotate 360 degrees to serve an expansive work area from one position.
- Straight Mast Forklift – These forklifts are designed to load and unload materials within various environments, such as construction sites and demolition areas. The maneuverability and accessibility of these forklifts set it apart from other forklifts.
What Are The Benefits of Rough Terrain Lifts?
Rough terrain forklifts can go where other forklifts cannot, thanks to their specially-designed tired and four-wheel drive. Rough terrain lifts are heavy-duty machines that expertly manage hilly, uneven, and wet surfaces. They can easily accomplish this, all while maintaining balance and control. Rough terrain lifts can extend up to 21 feet and possess a carrying capacity of 6,000 to 10,000 pounds. These pieces of machinery boast a reinforced cage cab and pneumatic tires, which allows for the security and stability of its operator while on rugged surfaces. Additionally, rough terrain lifts possess low frames, allowing their operators to safely transport heavy materials and navigate job sites with low overhangs. The significant benefits of rough terrain lifts include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Four-wheel drive
- Traction control
- Heavy-duty pneumatic tires
- Slope-climbing capability
- The ability to level the machine on slopes
- High weight capacity
What’s The Difference Between Heavy-Duty & Rough Terrain Lifts?
Generally, heavy-duty forklifts can lift heavier loads than rough terrain forklifts. However, rough terrain forklifts work better on rugged ground. If you need a forklift to haul heavy loads, you’re better off with a heavy-duty forklift. If you need a forklift that can traverse uneven, bumpy ground, you’re better off with a rough terrain forklift. They possess the control and stability you’ll need and excellent climbing ability.
How Much Can a Rough Terrain Forklift Lift?
The rough terrain forklifts we rent and sell have maximum capacities between 6,000 and 10,000 pounds. It’s important to note, however, that these machines’ maximum capacity—or rated capacity—can drop when real-world circumstances affect their performance. Additionally, actual forklift capacity—or net capacity—can vary depending on load balance, lift height, attachment weight, equipment condition.
How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Rough Terrain Lift?
On average, renting a rough terrain lift will cost anywhere from $280 to $600 per day, plus pickup and delivery charges. The price, however, will heavily depend on the lift’s lifting capacity. Additional factors that will affect the price include the equipment’s location and availability.
