Forklift Hire

Mainline offers an extensive range of forklifts for hire. Our range covers a diversity of applications for lifting and moving material: from telescopic work at height to stock rotation; from outdoor construction work to use in narrow warehouse facilities and food handling areas.

Our fleet includes gas, electric and diesel forklift trucks with mast heights of up to 7.8 m. These machines are available in a variety of widths and offer a number of features to suit different settings.

Power options include gas and electric machines capable of lifting up to 7 T for low emission environments.

For sites without restrictions on emissions, our diesel forklift range offers a powerful alternative and includes machines such as The Caterpillar CAT DP 135 with its impressive 13.5 tonne lift capacity. The CAT DP 135 includes a number of added features such as an adjustable steering column and a safety switch seat designed to prevent the machine from moving when the driver is not seated.

A number of our diesel forklifts can be provided with particle filters to adapt them to low emission environments, so please consult our sales team if you’re considering this option

Mainline’s forklift hire service includes some highly specialised counterbalance and rough terrain forklifts. The 4 WD JCB 926 RTFL has a 2600 kg lift capacity and a mast reach of up to 5.5 m. JCB’s Synchro Shuttle  transmission allows for rapid changes in direction and its sideshift feature has been designed to assist in accurate placement of materials on scaffolding.

We have a variety of specialised accessories available for hire with our forklifts including particulate filters, extending jibs, fork extensions, attachments for brick grabs, fork mounted carpet poles, fly jibs and man cages. Mainline provides both long and short term forklift hire options, so please get in touch with our sales team for more information on our products.
