Donkey Lift TrucksForklifts

The Donkey forklift was born out of necessity in the early 1980's. Sod farmer-engineer Ken Ensor resolved that he would build a truck carried forklift that was user friendly so as to be safe to operate with a minimum of operator training and high reliability.

After four years of building prototype forklifts that were tested in actual field operations, all of Kens design goals were met. A gas pedal to make it go and a brake pedal to stop with. The low gear of the 3-speed transmission gave it outstanding gradeability and the third gear gave it the necessary travel speed. The engine is a Kubota diesel for reliability. The brakes are hydraulically activated disc brakes. The basic design has evolved into a forklift that today can be purchased as light as 2500 pounds for a 3000 pound capacity machine up to 3800 pounds for a 5000 pound capacity unit.
