What Type of Forklift is Best for Your Job?

We offer the best forklift rentals in the St. Louis area, so you can rest assured that you’re getting quality material handling equipment no matter what type of truck you choose.

  • Pallet Jack:  A pallet jack is an extremely basic forklift that does exactly what the name implies: it moves pallets around your jobsite. This lift can be either manual or electric, depending on your needs and budget.
  • Scissor Lift:  When you need some added lift height, the scissor lift can help you out. Manual and electric versions are available. An electric forklift operates on a battery, which makes it great for indoor facilities like warehouses since it doesn’t emit harmful fumes like other types of forkliftsHowever, larger scissor lifts are available for heftier outdoor projects. For rough terrain worksites, it’s best to choose a forklift with pneumatic tires.
  • Sit-down Forklift:  When handling materials for an extended period of time, it’s often far more comfortable for the forklift operator to use a sit-down version.
  • Stand-up Forklift:  For smaller, quicker tasks–like moving around small pallets–a stand-up forklift is a convenient option.
  • Reach Truck:  Reach forklifts are perfect for working in small or narrow aisles and can extend themselves to grab their load, as the name suggests.
