The forklift is one of the workhorses of modern industry. Warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing plants, and lumber yards depend on forklifts of many types and sizes to keep their operations running smoothly. Other businesses only need a forklift to unload deliveries for an hour or two a day. Either way, having a forklift that can perform well for your specific needs is important.
