When A Heavy-Duty Forklift Is The Right Answer

Clark C60 IC Forklift

One of the most important items on your checklist for any job big or small is to have the right tools. Knowing what those tools are comes with experience and knowledge. You’ll likely not have to tackle too many jobs with the wrong tools, since it’s a quick study to learn how much more effort, time and money you’ll save when you choose the right tools. Deciding what kind of forklift to use for your company’s jobs depends on exactly what you will be asking that forklift to do. If your application calls for moving tonnage instead of poundage, you will need a heavy-duty forklift. At Liftmasters, we partner with Komatsu and Clark for your heavy-duty forklift needs. We believe these companies offer world-class options to answer your material handling application challenges.

If your typical job deals with loads that weigh tons instead of pounds, a heavy-duty forklift will save time, increase productivity and efficiency and give you a better ROI. At Liftmasters, we have knowledgeable material handling professionals who will be happy to give you guidance on choosing the right forklift for your job. Let’s dive into some of the reasons why we like Komatsu and Clark for heavy-duty applications.
