Piggyback PB45

Load Capacity: 5,000 lb

Once again, customers asked for a machine with unique features and benefits….so we built it! The PiggyBack PB45 Forklift has raised the bar in the industry. This medium-duty machine incorporates over 30 years of engineering and industry experience. Customers delivering lighter building materials, roofing, insulation, tile and agricultural products will find this new forklift to be everything they need and more. With its center seating and wider mast rails, the operator has excellent visibility. The PB45 forklift has excellent stability. While weighing in at only about 5,000lbs, the machine feels sure footed and rugged. Engineers designed the machine to have excellent ground clearance AND a low center of gravity. That, alone, was no small feet since the PB45 forklift incorporates most of the heavy-duty components used in larger PiggyBacks. Even more impressive, the machine was designed to have a shorter overall length. The PB45 can be configured to a 60" overhang which allows for mounting to even 48 foot-long trailers.
