Palfinger – Crayler Truck Mounted Forklifts

PAL Fork 3In designing the Crayler forklifts, Plafinger engineers started from the ground up to build a better, next generation truck-mounted forklift. They took proven advantages to a new level of safety, performance and service…with features that set Crayler apart. The result is a unit offering the speed, power, lift capacity and maneuverability you need to deliver a variety of materials over rough terrain, through crowded worksites, into tight space, on tight schedules…with ease and reliability and in fewer trips.
