Rough Terrain Diesel Rentals

Rough Terrain Diesel Rentals

If you require a forklift for use in rough terrain applications, you need to pick the right model. Not all forklifts can handle the uneven and unstable nature of rough terrain applications. Failing to choose a forklift adapted to your terrain will slow you down and can even mean getting stuck or creating unsafe situations.

For all of your rough terrain forklift rental needs, turn to our team here at Raka Material Handling. We have the experience to help you choose the perfect forklift for your terrain. We carry popular rough terrain models from Cat® and Lift King. You’ll find these models on the most extreme terrain conditions across the US and around the world every day, thanks to their design and features geared toward rough and uneven terrain.

What Are Rough Terrain and Diesel Forklifts Used For?

Rough terrain forklifts are designed to navigate even the most treacherous and uneven terrain. While many forklifts operate well on the smooth surfaces of warehouse floors, rough terrain forklifts work the best outside when lifting and moving loads across surfaces that quickly change in elevation.

Different forklifts run on different types of fuel, too. While some forklifts are powered by propane or electricity, diesel-fueled forklifts are popular for several reasons. First and foremost, diesel-fueled forklifts tend to provide the most power. Also, they are popular at construction sites and operations with diesel on-hand for other vehicles and equipment.


These rugged forklifts combine important rough terrain features, including:

  • Large pneumatic tires that provide traction and grip in a wide range of surface conditions
  • Increased ground clearance compared to standard forklifts to allow crawling over obstacles
  • A wide track and long wheelbase for added stability on soft ground and uneven surfaces
  • Powerful diesel engines that combine efficiency, durability and performance for reliable lifting

Don’t try to ‘make do’ with a standard forklift when you are out on rugged terrain. The risk of getting stuck or unbalanced isn’t worth the risk. Instead, turn to our team here at Raka. We have a range of rough terrain forklift models available to rent for your short or long-term needs.
