This report concerns the market for rough terrain lift trucks in France. The findings are based on Off-Highway Research's existing database and on information collected during interviews conducted in France with the manufacturers and leading importers in January and February 2013.
The rough terrain lift truck is a purpose-built machine with either a vertical rigid mast or a telescopic boom, mounted on a rough terrain chassis designed to lift, carry and place loads over rough ground in all weather conditions.
Rough terrain lift trucks in this report are rated according to their maximum lift capacity and the maximum height to which they can lift a load. The telescopic handler has the ability to lift much higher and/or to reach forward considerably further than the rigid mast machine. The maximum lift capacity and the height are not linked. Buyers have to consult a load chart to see to what height the maximum load can rise.
The rough terrain lift truck is one of the few products that are active in the agricultural, industrial and construction sectors of the market, which explains its increasing popularity over the past two decades.
