Add Some Muscle to Your Big Project with the Power of a Forklift

Fork Lift Isolated

For the do-it-yourself enthusiast who likes to take on big projects that involve the movement and maneuvering of heavy building materials, renting a forklift is a necessity. Human labor can only get you so far—for the sake of efficiency and safety, it’s best to call in some backup. If you’re moving pallets of bricks, slabs of stone, or hunks of metal, a forklift offers you the advantage of 8,000 pounds of steel and a diesel engine. Here’s why you should rent a forklift:

Lifting Strength: The average person can lift upwards of 100 pounds to their hips. The average forklift lifting capacity is around 4,000 pounds—this vehicle can lift a load more than 15 feet in the air. That’s quite a difference! Their lifting capacity makes forklifts critical to warehouses and distribution centers, but also versatile enough for home projects. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a load that a forklift can’t handle.

Maneuverability: You’re legally able to drive a forklift if you have a driver’s license, but you may need a practice run or two to get the hang of its rear-wheel steering. Rear-wheel steering, along with a forklift’s compact body design, allows the vehicle to maneuver around tight corners and into areas that other load-bearing equipment can’t. Just take it easy on the steering wheel.

Attachments: Lifting pallets isn’t the only function a forklift can carry out. Attach a truss boom to extend your forklift’s reach and use it as a crane. Do you need to clear away snow, dirt, waste, or bulk materials? Attach a bucket to the front end. You can even transport rolls of carpet with a carpet pole attachment.

If you need some added muscle to help you complete a big project, call A Tool Shed at (831) 359-4769 to take advantage of our forklift and forklift attachment rentals. Come into one of our six locations in northern California to learn more about the wide selection of equipment and tools we have available to rent.
