In 2008, Donald Rigging purchased our 60 ton forklift truck from Rigger Lift USA. With a small footprint of only 8’W and under 10’H it serves as one of the most compact heavy lift machines in Western Canada. The machine utilizes removable counterweight, so we can scale up or down depending on our customers needs. The forklift comes with conventional forks with an 8’L the can also be swapped out for a boom attachment that gives us the ability to lift from above. The machine is available for a single lift, or if our customers require it for a long term we are able to dry rent.
