Gas forklift hire

Duralift has a wide range of forklifts available for hire at 2.5 tonne or 3 tonne lift capacity and lift heights ranging from 4.3 to 6m. LPG gas bottles included.

Rough Terrain forklift hire

Rough terrain forklifts or all terrain forklifts (also known as Buggy forklifts or Buggie forklifts) are a diesel forklift that is four wheel drive with rough terrain tyres. This enables you to not only have all the weight-lifting capabilities of a standard forklift but also work on uneven or muddy ground. These machines can easily handle heavy loads on all terrain types, have greater manoeuvrability and keep the machine moving in the roughest of applications. The Buggy forklift has a lift capacity of 2,500kg and 3.7m lift height in the roughest of applications.


Counterbalance forklifts are a popular choice due to their functionality, manoeuvrability and ease of use. Their durable and sturdy design make them ideally suited for warehouse applications.
