Forklifts are powerful material handling machines that assist a range of industries. They are designed to help workers with a range of tasks from picking up and moving material to stacking and loading. The lifting power of a forklift means the job gets done quicker and with minimal effort from workers. Forklifts make transporting heavy items like bricks, piping, wood, warehouse stock and other materials simple and easy.

However, many businesses find the cost associated with investing in a forklift daunting. Shifting markets and evolving industries requirements mean that you need adaptability in any business investment and that is what a Dirker forklift will provide.

We appreciate YOU

Our modular designs allow you to capitalise on your investment through multiple usage. No matter your requirement, Dirker has an attachment to help.
