A counterbalance forklift is a forklift which is generally used to transport heavy objects. The forklift is fitted with a counterweight at the rear end. This is there to counteract the weight which is being transported, significantly reducing the risk of tipping. For this reason, counterbalance forklifts are used regularly within storage and distribution centres where they have to perform loading, stacking and transportation operations on a regular basis. You can often see a counterbalance forklift in domestic storage Leicester centres as they are used to transport heavy objects.
