Forklifts are essentially small trucks that specialize in the transporting and lifting of heavy cargo. These machines utilize 2 forks, also called blades which are situated on the front of the model. These blades are capable of lifting things that weigh up to thousands of pounds. The steel forks are able to move downwards and upwards, forward and backward in order to handle the moving loads.

Forklifts are usually used in dockside applications, warehouses, in agriculture and on construction sites. They are utilized to transport heavy cargo and save much man-power on the jobsite. Some units run on electricity and others utilize liquid propane, diesel or gasoline. Based on the weight which should be raised, the distance between the blades can be adjusted accordingly.
