When it comes to heavy-duty lifting tasks in a warehouse or worksite environment, few pieces of lifting equipment can compare to the almighty power of the forklift.
Strong, sturdy and effortless, this tried and tested machine has solved many a lifting conundrum and been the answer to countless workday lifting prayers the world over.
However, forklifts are far more than just a glorified lift/lower trolley for palletised goods. In fact, with the right attachment, forklifts can be very versatile tools to have in your on-site arsenal.
