Frequently Asked Questions
What is a truck mounted forklift?
A truck mounted forklift, or TMF for short, is a category of equipment used to load or unload heavy materials during onsite deliveries. Most significantly, a Truck mount forklift "mounts" to the back of a cargo carrying transport vehicle. It can easily be transported from site to site.
Do you need a license to drive a forklift?
No, but truck mounted forklifts fall under OSHA's guidelines for Powered Industrial Trucks (PIT). While there is no specific requirement for an motor vehicle license, OSHA does require initial and periodic training and (re)evaluation according to OSHA 1910.178(l).
Is a forklift a vehicle or equipment?
A forklift is an industrial vehicle categorized as a powered industrial truck (PIT). They are used to move various materials over short distance. A typical forklift consists of a small truck frame with an attached mast assembly that raises and lowers the load. Moffett truck mounted forklifts have the added capability of being able to be mounted to the transport truck.
Is there an age requirement to operate a truck mounted forklift?
Yes, according to OSHA, "It is a violation of Federal law for anyone UNDER 18 years of age to operate a forklift or for anyone OVER 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified to do so."
Can I operate a truck mounted forklift on the road?
Generally, yes, when used for loading and unloading materials. Regulations vary from state to state so we would recommend checking for any state or local regulations regarding forklift operation on public roadways. Certain states require registering truck mounted forklifts similar to a motor vehicle.
