PALFINGER Truck-Mounted Forklifts

truck-mounted forklifts


As a global industry leader of lifting, loading and handling solutions, PALFINGER recognized an increased demand from their crane customers for truck-mounted forklifts as a complementary delivery solution. Truck-mounted forklifts offer the added capability of delivering across rough terrain to previously inaccessible and remote locations. This growing market demand led PALFINGER to invest in a clean sheet design and develop a new range of truck-mounted forklifts.

The objective was to set new standards in safety, ergonomics, operator comfort and visibility, on-site performance and on-highway style and appearance. The result has been a truck-mounted forklift with many new features, innovations and patents that permits us to say that we have truly reinvented the truck-mounted forklift.


The exterior has a striking, sleek look with its higher ground clearance and lower profile, signature PALFINGER red panels, powder-coated grey chassis, and 45° rear corners.

Inside, there's increased legroom and operator space, a swivel seat with integrated side guard for easy entry and exit, digital dashboard and deluxe Milsco seating.

When seated, the breakthrough panoramic visibility must truly be seen to be believed.
