Ingersol Rand Rough Terrain Forklift

Ingersol Rand Rough Terrain Forklift

Even after the rise and explosion of telehandlers on the material handling market, rough terrain lift trucks and vertical mast lift trucks could be found picking up and moving various goods and materials on jobsites all around the globe. There have been many other standard lift trucks that lost market share to telehandlers. This happened especially when the challenger broke onto the construction scene. Ever since that time, sales numbers have stabilized. Vertical-mast forklifts have re-emerged and seem to be becoming more popular once more due to their greater productivity, modification of some telehandler-like features and low cost.

The straight mast lift truck can complete double the job as a telehandler because of their superior handling and maneuverability along with their better ground speed. Interestingly enough, rental companies are beginning to charge higher rates on straight-mast models.

Rental buyers are having significant influence in the rough-terrain lift truck business. Over half of all vertical-mast lift trucks are currently being sold to a rental yard. These purchases are usually driven mostly by utilization, that is a factor closely followed by purchase price.

The telehandler has become a very popular equipment in the material handling business. Their popularity has given them a better advantage when it comes to rental utilization. Their overall expansion has been moderated by their higher price. There is several lift truck users who feel that telehandlers are not practically as useful as opposed to traditional rough-terrain forklifts for unloading and loading repetitive tasks. This means that even though competition amongst telehandler marketers has lowered their prices, a lot choose the RT forklifts which have been performing well for decades.

The telehandler is a little slower machine in comparison to a rough terrain forklift unit. They are also ganglier to utilize and needs a higher level of skillfulness to complete the task. On the upside, they get the reach if they require it. There will always be a place in the industry for forklifts however, as there are places that you will not be able to access with a telehandler.

Rough terrain lift trucks are usually compact machinery, smaller but more able to carry a heavier load vertically compared to the telehandler. Essentially, so as to use the best machine for your application, you would have to determine what jobs exactly you will be completing, the kind of conditions and environment you will be operating in and what your load capacity is. These factors will help you decide what the right options available are.
