FAQs
How high can a forklift reach?

The height a forklift can reach depends on its size, model and load. United Rentals offers extended reach forklifts with maximum lift heights up to 56 feet. Load capacities for these forklifts range from 6,600 pounds to 16,000 pounds. based on a 24-inch load center lifting on level ground.

How do you steer a reach forklift?

In order to operate a boom forklift, you must have a forklift certification. Many technical and online schools offer forklift training and certification at an affordable cost. Steering a forklift is different than steering a car. When operating a forklift, the steering wheel usually controls the rear wheels of the forklift because the front wheels are bearing the weight of the load. Because the rear wheels steer the forklift, you should be careful not to take turns too quickly, which could cause the vehicle to tip over or spill the load.

How much do telehandlers weigh?

Most telehandlers weigh between 25,000 and 30,000 lbs. unloaded, and closer to 35,000 lbs. when at full load. Consult the owners manual for exact weight and load specifications depending on your model.
