If there has ever been one piece of equipment that industries across the board has become completely dependent on, it is material handling forklifts. A large majority of industries have to deal with the moving of heavy goods or vast quantities of material in some way or another, something that is definitely not practical to do using manual labour. Forklifts and other lifting equipment have not only enabled many a business to quickly and easily move materials around, as a result it has also exponentially increased the volumes of goods that can be handled and overall productivity as a result. This sturdy workhorse has had many overhauls over the years, and today you will find a number of variations that are adapted to specific industries and materials to be handled.
As an example, look at the construction industry. Materials to be used for building are often very heavy and difficult to manoeuvre. The construction terrain can be rough, and working hours are long. This means you need a powerful piece of equipment to withstand the heavy wear and tear. Warehousing is also dependent on the movement of stock on a continuous basis, but provides much less space to operate in, and one has to consider exhaust emissions as the material handling forklifts are now operating indoors. And what about lifting awkward shaped goods, such as large rolls of paper? Various different models and add-ons to existing lift trucks have been designed to cater for all of this specialised uses. All that is left for you is to determine which model would be the best for your specific operations.
