5 steps to hire a forklift

Here we take you through the five steps to picking out the perfect forklift to hire for your business in Adelaide:

1. Choose between an electric battery or diesel/gas/LPG/petrol forklift

Electric forklifts have the great benefit of being more eco-friendly with no harmful exhaust fumes going into the environment. They are also quieter in operation, and their smaller frame allows them to get through tighter spaces more easily. An electric forklift hire is ideal for indoor purposes, however the Komatsu range of electric 1.8 - 3.0 tonne capacity forklifts have outstanding weather resistance that also make them suitable for use outdoors.

Forklifts that run on diesel, LPG or petrol are known for their great durability and higher lifting capacities of up to 25 tonnes. Komatsu diesel forklifts make it easier than ever to get the most out of your workplace and look after your workers with our safe and innovative features. For example, our levers come with fingertip enabled controls and operator sensing technology to freeze operation when it detects there is no one in the seat for more than 3 seconds.

2. Puncture-proof, pneumatic or cushion tyres?

Besides our 10-25 capacity Tyre Handlers, our forklifts for hire in Adelaide come in either of these three options. Commonly, you will have a choice between puncture proof or pneumatic tyres.

  • Puncture proof – Solid rubber tyres that require no air and therefore less maintenance. They are puncture proof as the name suggests and are ideal for most applications.
  • Pneumatic – Air filled tyres with ribbed textures provide better grip and handling, they make great tyres for outdoor use.
  • Cushion – These tyres are made from solid rubber that has been fitted around metal. They last a long time but don’t provide the same grip as a pneumatic tyre, although are best suited indoors.


We’re able to provide you with all the attachments you need for your forklift use, including slippers, rotators and clamps. If you need anything of the sort, please let us know.

4.How soon do you need them?

While anticipating the needs of your business can be challenging, at Komatsu Forklifts Australia our forklifts are available for same-day delivery. From as little as $25 a day, we’re ready to help you set up a lease 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
