What are All-Terrain Forklifts?
All-terrain forklifts (also known as rough terrain forklifts) are heavy duty industrial forklifts meant for all kinds of rough terrain and can handle much heavier loads.
They are great for lifting, stacking and transporting in construction sites, forestry and warehouses with outdoor storage. Furthermore, they can be fitted with buckets and other accessories for all kinds of use.

All-Terrain Forklift vs. Standard Forklift
Both types of forklifts provide the same functions of loading, unloading, raising and stacking loads on shelfs and can be driven. However, they are meant for use in very different environments due to their construct.
Here is a brief breakdown of the difference between the two:
- Indoor use
- Compact and mobile
- Smaller and hard tires
- Less maintenance
- Easier to operate
- Outdoor use; construction, forestry, farms etc.
- Larger and stronger
- Soft, large tires provide excellent grip and manoeuvrability in the harshest terrains
- Truck-like chassis for heavy-duty operations
- Ability to climb steep slopes
