Rough Terrain Forklift
At construction sites and other kinds of environments where the surface is not paved, the rough terrain forklift is recommended. This particular kind of forklift is used to transport materials around lumberyards.
These types of forklifts are really meant for rough terrain. However, the machinery is top heavy and has to be handled carefully in rough locations. The equipment must be level with all tires on the ground when lifting.
At higher speeds, steering is harder. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not set speed limits on forklifts. Nevertheless, operators are responsible for operating forklifts at a safe speed, specially when turning and driving on rough terrain.
To prevent a tip over, do not lift a load whilst operating on an incline. The load should be on the uphill side of the equipment when driving up a slope. When driving down a slope, it is good safety practice to back down.
