Industrial Forklift

The industrial forklift—also called a large capacity forklift—combines the functionalities of a warehouse forklift with that of a telehandler. While it can’t reach difficult angles the way that a telehandler can, it is capable of lifting payloads much higher off the ground than a warehouse forklift and heavier loads. The industrial forklift starts with a 30,000 lbs maximum lift. However, you only need such power on specialized jobs. The industrial forklift’s utility is narrow in scope compared to the telehandler and warehouse forklift.

There are 20 popular forklift manufacturers on the market. Big names include NACCO Industries and Mitsubishi, and some of the popular models boast an impressive capacity of 36,000 lbs.
