Rough Terrain Forklift
The rough terrain forklift is best for applications at construction sites and different environments where there is no paved surface. This particular type of forklift is utilized to transport materials around lumberyards.
These kinds of forklifts are truly designed for rough terrain. Nevertheless, the machine is top heavy and needs to be handled carefully in rough areas. The machinery has to be level with all tires on the ground when lifting.
Steering is more challenging at higher speeds. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not set speed limits on forklifts. Nevertheless, operators are responsible for operating forklifts at a speed that is safe, specially if driving on rough terrain and when turning.
In order to avoid a tip over, do not raise a load while operating on an incline. The load must be on the uphill side of the machinery if driving up an incline. If driving down a slope, backing down is a good safety practice.
