Forklift Rental Types

Our rental inventory includes state of the art equipment from industry-leading manufacturers such as Hyundai and Clark featuring forklifts from 3,000lb capacity up to 55,000lb capacity to help you handle any job! Below are the most common rental types we have in stock:

  




 Electric Riders-3 or 4 Wheel Sit down 3,000 to 6000 Lb Capacity 

This model is primarily used indoors on flat, even surfaces. All the functions (drive and hydraulics) of this unit are controlled electrically. While most electric sit-down riders use cushion type tires, some are ordered with a solid pneumatic tire and wheel combination. This forklift can come in 3-or 4-wheel configurations. The four-wheel versions are Class 4 forklifts.

Features:

  • Ground clearance same as cushion tire forklift
  • No harmful fumes
  • Long battery life lasting six consecutive hours or throughout an 8-hour shift with 2-3 breaks

Although it is not suited for outdoor use and may offer less horsepower than gas-powered units, this unit will not give off harmful fumes making it an excellent option for facilities where employees are close to forklift operations or for food-processing and healthcare facilities.


 IC Cushion Tire 3,000 to 15,500 Lb Capacity

These Class 4 forklifts are one of the most commonly used forklifts in the U.S., typically used indoors for applications such as manufacturing, warehousing, bottling, and trucking.

Features:

  • Solid rubber tires called cushion tires
  • Powered by either Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG), gasoline, Diesel, or be dual fuel. (Dual fuel means that the forklift is equipped with both LPG and Gas fuel systems and can be run on either one but not at the same time.)
  • Engine powers all the functions of the truck, drive, and hydraulics

These units are not well-suited for outdoor use, but they are great for indoor use on smooth surfaces. Their smaller size compared to a pneumatic tire unit of equal capacity makes this truck best for maneuvering in indoor spaces.



IC Pneumatic Tire 3,000 to 18,000 Lb Capacity

Larger in size when compared to Cushion Tire unit of equal capacity, sometimes called “Yard Truck,” these Class 5 forklifts are primarily used outdoors but can be used indoors if space allows.

Features:

  • Larger tires, either air-filled (pneumatic) or pneumatic shaped solid rubber tires
  • Better ground clearance than cushion tire forklift
  • Softer ride
  • Can be powered by LPG, Gasoline, Diesel Fuel or can be dual fuel

Although this type of truck is intended for outdoor use, it does not do well in soft materials such as sand or loose gravel because the forklift has no suspension making it impossible to maintain tire to ground contact in uneven environments.



Diesel Pneumatic Tire 18,000 to 55,000 Lb Capacity

These Class 5 forklifts, sometimes called “Yard Trucks,” are larger when compared to a Cushion tire unit of equal capacity and offer a softer ride.

Features:

  • Better ground clearance than cushion tire forklift
  • Uses large air-filled (pneumatic) or pneumatic shaped solid rubber tires
  • Powered by LPG, Gasoline, Diesel Fuel or can be dual fuel

Although this type of truck is intended for outdoor use, it can be used indoors if space allows. This type of truck does not do well in soft materials such as sand or loose gravel. This is because a forklift has no suspension making it impossible to maintain tire to ground contact in uneven environments.
