Our diesel forklifts offer the perfect solution to even the toughest of jobs.

Diesel forklift trucks are one of the toughest workhorses in the materials handling world, being suited to a wide range of unit loads and designed to withstand the rigours of outdoor work. Powered by a fuel that is both easy to get hold of and straightforward to use, engine forklifts perform extremely well in harsh environments, including those that are wet or dirty.

Diesel forklift typical applications include:

  • Loading and unloading goods vehicles
  • Container stuffing and moving goods into or out of external storage areas
  • Transferring items from one site location to another – for example between two different production areas

Features of our diesel forklifts include:
  • The compact, smooth lines of each of our diesel forklift models guarantee that they are easy to manoeuvre even in confined spaces whilst ensuring good visibility.
  • A built-in warning system and easy maintenance procedures help to keep your diesel forklifts in service and your costs to a minimum.

Unlike some other lift trucks, diesel counterbalance forklifts come in a very wide range of sizes and lift capacities, which makes them capable of carrying everything from a small pallet of bulk materials to individual components weighing several tonnes. The Cat Lift Truck DP range, for example, offers maximum lift capacities from 2.0 tonnes (DP20N3) up to 5.5 tonnes (DP55N3). Maximum lift heights are typically between 3m and 7m, depending on the kind of mast fitted, but while this can be useful in applications where trucks truly need to work at height – for example in outdoor racking – the emphasis in most applications will be on horizontal, rather than vertical movement.

Our diesel forklift models are equipped with powerful industrial strength and are dependable and easy to service, with low emissions and fuel consumption, making them the ideal choice for your application. View our entire range of diesel forklifts below.
