At Ralph Moyle Inc. we understand that different tasks require different tools, that is why we maintain and operate four main types of lift trucks that assist us in unloading, storing, preparing product for distribution, and loading. Regular preventative maintenance and all repairs on our fleet are done by Great Lakes Forklift out of Grand Rapids Michigan.
Our forklift types include-
We currently operate over 10 single forklifts, both electric and propane powered. These types of lifts have been the powerhouse of the warehousing and transportation industry since the the 1920’s.
This lift is a heavier than a single forklift, and also has a hydraulic attachment on the front that allows for the forks to open into two sets of forks, effectively doubling its carrying capacity. “Doubles” lifts effectively cut loading/unloading times in half.
The “layer picker” is a state of the art four paddle-armed hydraulic attachment for lift trucks that allows for the picking up of individual (1-4) full layers of [certain] product, and move it to another pallet. This dedicated truck makes full layer distribution picking faster, and more efficient.

“Squeeze Clamp” truck:
This attachment allows for entire pallets-worth of [certain] product to be completely lifted off their pallet, and loaded into the trailer on the floor.
