Forklifts are basically small trucks which specialize in the moving and carrying of heavy loads. These machinery use 2 forks, also referred to as blades which are located on the front of the unit. These blades can pick up supplies which weigh as much as thousands of pounds. The steel forks could move up and down, backward and forward so as to deal with the moving loads.

Lift trucks are usually utilized in dockside applications, warehouses, on construction sites and in agriculture. These are used to transport heavy loads and save much man-power on the jobsite. Some units run on electricity and other units use diesel, gasoline or liquid propane. Based on the weight that should be raised, the distance between the blades could be adjusted accordingly.

These various attachments have been designed to be mounted directly to the lift truck. For instance, there are particular attachments to help reach and raise things easily.
