Rough terrain forklifts, also known as all-terrain forklifts, are designed to work in construction sites and other areas without improved surfaces (soft ground, muddy ground, hills, ditches, etc.).  The most significant difference between a standard industrial forklift (such as a Toyota) and a rough terrain forklift are the tires and ground clearance. 


All Terrain Forklifts Vs. Industrial Forklifts

- Industrial forklifts (such as those made by Toyota) use common over-the-road type tires, whereas rough terrain forklifts use tractor tires for better traction and flotation properties.
 
- The increased ground clearance on an all-terrain forklift allows it to be used in rough work environments where an industrial truck would get stuck.

- Lastly, rough terrain forklifts can come with full-time 4-wheel drive, which provides the best traction and maneuverability in rough terrain.
