Thanks to four-wheel drive and specially designed tires, rough-terrain forklifts can go where other forklifts can’t. These heavy-duty machines navigate hilly, uneven, and wet surfaces while maintaining balance and control. Also called straight-mast forklifts or all-terrain forklifts, rough-terrain forklifts have a straight mast that can extend up to 21 feet and a carrying capacity ranging from 6,000 to 8,000 lbs (or more) depending on the model.
Rough-terrain forklifts also feature a reinforced cage cab and pneumatic tires to offer operators both security and stability on rugged surfaces. The forklift’s low frame allows operators to navigate job sites with low overhangs and safely transport heavy materials both indoors and outdoors. Rough-terrain forklifts can also be paired with other attachments to extend their uses on a job site. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

Rough-terrain forklift rental prices generally range from around $250/day to $600/day depending on lifting capacity. Factors such as location, availability, and season can also impact prices. BigRentz offers 6,000-lb and 8,000 lb rough-terrain forklift options.
BigRentz rents rough-terrain forklifts with a maximum reach of 21 feet and maximum capacities of 6,000 pounds or 8,000 pounds. However, maximum capacity (also called rated capacity) can drop when various real-world considerations affect performance. Actual forklift capacity (also called net capacity or payload capacity) depend on factors such as load balance, lift height, attachment weight, and the condition of the equipment.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) categorizes forklifts into seven classes from I to VII, depending on usage and fuel type. While an electric indoor rider truck falls into Class I, rough-terrain forklifts are considered Class VII, the highest class.
These two types of lift trucks have different specialities: heavy-duty forklifts can generally lift heavier loads while rough-terrain forklifts work better on rugged ground. If you need to haul extremely heavy loads at your worksite, a heavy-duty forklift may fit the bill. The lift capacity of heavy-duty models can range from 19,000 lbs to 105,000 lbs, which is generally more than what most other types of forklifts can handle.
If your worksite has uneven surfaces, unstable ground, or other extreme conditions, you may opt for a rough-terrain forklift. Thanks to a large ground clearance and off-road tires, these models offer control and stability along with excellent climbing ability. All-terrain forklifts also feature safety for operators, high lift capacities, and versatility with a wide variety of available attachments.
