Piggyback Forklift Specs
A piggyback forklift is a small material handling machine. Also known as a truck-mounted forklift, this equipment attaches to the back of a truck for transport, saving space inside the trailer. Once the truck arrives at its destination, the piggyback lift is ready for immediate use. Increase efficiency and productivity by investing in this equipment.
Piggyback forklifts only have three wheels. The back tire can rotate 90 degrees, helping operators retrieve loads in tight spaces. Learn more about this equipment before browsing piggyback forklifts for sale.
Lift height varies based on the model you select. Generally, a piggyback lift has a maximum lift height of 12 feet (144 inches). This is plenty of reach for loading and unloading materials from a truck.
If you need equipment with more lift height, consider other warehouse forklift types. Narrow aisle forklifts, for instance, generally have a lift height of around 30 feet. However, it is much harder to take these machines with you. Choose a piggyback forklift if you need quick and efficient transportation off-site.
Like lift height, load capacity varies. Load capacity is the maximum weight the equipment can handle. On average, a piggyback forklift has a load capacity between 3,000 and 8,000 pounds.
Be sure to check the load capacity chart on the forklift’s data plate before operating. This chart has information about the capacity of the piggyback lift based on the load center.
