The 6,000 lb 21 ft straight mast forklift is designed to lift and lower heavy pallet loads. For lifting, the forklift’s lifting arms apply hydraulic displacement and can safely handle up to 6,000 lbs. When lowering, the forklift relies on gravity to slowly and steadily descend the pallet. This large-frame machine achieves maneuverability via its lifting arms, which connect to a vertical lifting assembly called a straight mast. Because the straight mast forklift can also transport heavy materials, it’s an essential tool for warehouse workers and construction teams alike.
