Counterbalance Lift Trucks:
Key Features and Benefits


When safety and reliability matter, you can meet diverse needs with counterbalance lifts.

Known for the counterbalance weight design, they have a weight in the rear of a truck to offset the load that’s carried in front of the vehicle.

Counterbalance lifts operate in a variety of settings, including warehouse and distribution centers. Common uses include loading and stacking. Pallets are carried on the forks that extend in front of the counterbalance truck.

Regardless of the size of your facility, counterbalance lifts can help your business improve the efficiency of your operations.
