How to Choose Rough Terrain Forklift and Ordinary Forklift

Rough terrain forklifts and normal forklifts are distinctly different in terms of features and applicable scenarios. Rough terrain forklifts are usually designed to work in complex terrains and harsh environments, such as muddy ground, rugged mountain roads or uneven field sites. Ordinary forklifts, on the other hand, are more suitable for cargo handling and stacking operations in flat indoor or outdoor areas.

Rough terrain forklifts and normal forklifts have some differences in design and use

1. Rough terrain forklifts are usually equipped with more powerful engines and more durable tires to adapt to uneven terrain and harsh working environments. Regular forklifts are usually used indoors in flat locations.

2. Rough terrain forklifts have higher ground clearance and better suspension systems to cope with bumps and uneven ground. Regular forklifts have lower ground clearance and are used on flat surfaces. 3.

3. Rough terrain forklifts usually have a four-wheel drive system that provides better traction and stability. Ordinary forklifts usually have only two-wheel drive.

4. Rough terrain forklifts usually have greater load capacity and longer lifting arms to handle heavier loads and higher shelves. Ordinary forklifts are suitable for light and medium load handling

The basis for choosing between a Rough Terrain Forklift and a Forklift

1. Ground conditions: If you need to operate a forklift on uneven ground, such as land, grass or gravel, then a Rough Terrain Forklift Truck may be more suitable because it has better passing ability and stability.

2. Load Requirement: If you need to handle heavy loads, then you may need to choose a Rough Terrain Forklift with a larger load capacity to ensure safe and efficient handling.

3. Working environment: If you need to operate the forklift in an indoor environment, then a regular forklift may be more suitable as they are usually smaller, more maneuverable and do not produce emissions.

4. Maintenance costs: Rough terrain forklifts are usually more expensive to maintain than regular forklifts because they require more powerful engines and more durable components such as tires. Therefore, you also need to consider the maintenance cost factor when choosing one.

Choosing which forklift to use depends on your specific needs and the environment in which it will be used. If you need to use a forklift outdoors or in complex terrain, then a Lugong rough terrain forklift may be more suitable, or if you primarily use a forklift in an indoor environment, then a Lugong forklift may be more suitable.
