3 Wheeler
A forklift with a single-drive wheel added in the center of its rear to help ensure maximum maneuverability is known as a three-wheeler. Working best in limited-space applications, these machines provide excellent maneuverability, ideal for applications requiring inside and outside use and racking loading.

4 Directional (4-D)
A four-directional forklift can travel in four directions: forward, reverse, left and right. Four-directional forklifts are especially useful for handling long, bulky loads like lumber, pipe, tubing and steel bar stock up to 22 feet in length.
