Let’s face it – the terminology used within the materials handling equipment industry can be a little daunting!

Working in the MHE industry since the late 1980s, we’ve become accustomed to what can sometimes appear to be a second language, but we understand that not everyone uses this wording as part of their everyday communication.

That’s why we have compiled a list of common words and phrases related to forklifts, reach trucks and other equipment.

Whether you know what you need, but don’t know the name for it, or if you have heard a term used that you aren’t familiar with – you are sure to find the answer to your question here… and if not, head over to our enquiry page.

We’d be happy to help you find what you need.
