If you need a lift truck that is easy to transport and maneuver, a truck-mounted forklift is the perfect choice. At Holt of California, we carry high-quality truck-mounted forklifts from Piggyback and Prowler.
What Are Truck-Mounted Forklifts?
A truck-mounted forklift is a compact forklift that can be mounted onto the back of a truck or trailer. It is secured with chains, latches or hooks that prevent the equipment from moving while the vehicle is in motion. When you arrive at your destination, you can quickly detach the truck-mounted forklift from the vehicle and immediately put it to use loading, unloading and moving materials around your job site.
Benefits of Truck-Mounted Forklifts
Truck-mounted forklifts offer many advantages over traditional forklifts. Besides their superior transportability, they’re easier to unload in cramped locations because of their smaller size. Truck-mounted forklifts also save valuable transport space, as they mount onto the back of a truck or trailer rather than taking up space in the truck bed. Once on the ground, truck-mounted forklifts offer exceptional maneuverability thanks to their lightweight, compact construction.
