Rough terrain forklift trucks are designed for outdoor work on uneven surfaces. In this forklift segment a 4-wheel drive is standard. This makes rough terrain forklifts ideal for carrying out jobs in various industries such as mining, agriculture and forestry. In case of a muddy and rather unpaved or hilly working environment maximum off-road capability (4x4), height and high ground clearance defenitely pay off.

Using the appropriate mast and the right attachment increases the efficiency and also provides the maximum safety for the driver. Rough terrain forklifts are powered by diesel or gasoline. However, the diesel engine is the most common engine type.
For a high degree of freedom of movement, there are also rough terrain forklift models with differential lock and articulated joints with two and four-wheel drive.

But the rough terrain forklift truck is not only used extremely efficiently in difficult terrain, but also offers great advantages in other areas of work.
