What exactly is a Container Mast Forklift?

It's quite straightforward. Picture this: a forklift specially designed to load and unload containers with ease.

A container-spec forklift truck is designed to operate seamlessly within the dimensions of a standard shipping container. 

This means it can navigate into the container, lifting palletized loads without any hassle caused by the container's roof height. 

In essence, a Container Mast Forklift empowers you to enter 20' or 40' containers, efficiently handling the unloading of pallets or freight. 

Whether it's powered by LPG, diesel, or electricity, these forklifts boast an impressive capacity of up to 7 tons.

When it comes to these remarkable machines, the diesel option shines as the most popular choice

It delivers a robust lift capacity ranging from 2500 to 5000 kg and reaches a lift height of 4500 mm

Opting for diesel ensures cost-effectiveness without compromising performance. It's worth noting that due to the specialized mast construction, 

the Container Mast Forklift comes with a higher price tag than standard models.

Speaking of masts, we're proud to showcase our 3-stage full free lift mast. This design ensures optimal performance while respecting the limitations imposed by container dimensions.

Let's delve into container specifics:

For a 20' container: Dimensions (L x W x H) of 5.69 x 2.13 x 2.18 meters, capable of accommodating loads up to 17.5 tons, offering a volume of 24 to 26 cubic meters.

For a 40' container: Dimensions (L x W x H) of 11.8 x 2.13 x 2.18 meters, with a load capacity of 22 tons, and a voluminous 54 cubic meters.

For a 40' High Cube container: Dimensions (L x W x H) of 11.8 x 2.13 x 2.72 meters, capable of handling loads up to 22 tons, within a generous volume of 68 cubic meters.

Now, let's talk about lifting heights. Due to the nature of mast segments and the requirement for overlap, the forklift's reach typically doesn't exceed 5 meters.

Our forklifts come with a fantastic feature: full free lift. This means the forks can be raised without immediately extending the inner mast channels. 

This innovation is available on masts equipped with free lift cylinders, showcasing our dedication to efficiency and ease of use.

Allow me to introduce you to one of our most coveted products: the Diesel Forklift. With a 3-ton capacity, a container mast, sideshifter functionality, and 5-feet forks, this powerhouse is a game-changer.
