DONKEY® Truck Carried Forklifts

Burro Forklift

Burro Truck Mounted Forklift


Everything about the Burro is intended to be simple, reliable and lightweight. It can handle an impressive 3000 pound load at a 24" load center and lift it 65 inches. It is intended for use on improved surfaces such as, graded lots, parking areas, or paved surfaces. The Burro is great for delivering palletized materials with a single axle truck to stores, warehouses or job sites with suitable terrain. If you need rough terrain delivery, take a look at the Donkey.
