Our Counterbalance Forklift Trucks for Sale
A counterbalanced lift truck, like any other forklift, has two forks in the front for lifting and moving pallets. What makes it different is the counterweight, which balances out the front load weight with the weight of either a battery or iron in the back. Because of this design, these machines don't need protruding legs for balance.
You can use an industrial counterbalance forklift truck in applications like:
- Distribution centers
