Taylor forklift handling logs

Taylor Forlift

When you think of unloading log trucks a truckload at a time one does not first think of using a traditional forklift, but it can work quite well if the lift truck is big enough and adapted properly. This Taylor forklift has top grabs to reach over the load to keep logs from rolling free, and has kickers behind the logs to push them off the teeth. It's been used for years in this sawmill to unload trucks with 35 to 30 tons of logs.
