Chrisman Manufacturing has been a leading manufacturer of truck-mounted forklifts since 1987. From their first forklifts all the way to their current Navigator series, their goal has always been complete customer satisfaction. Thousands of hours of research and testing have gone into the development of the Navigator series alongside feedback from operators, mechanics, and business owners. This ensures that each Navigator forklift is reliable, user friendly, and practical for many applications. Whether you’re moving sod and fertilizer or hauling lumber across a job site, we have a Navigator forklift that will get the job done safely and efficiently.
Construction – If you don’t have access to a loading dock but need to move loads of lumber or pallets of brick from the trailer to the other side of the job site, Navigator has you covered! With lift capacities between 4,000 and 6,500 lbs, you can be sure that each load will be transported without issue. The unique frame of each model also allows loads to rest directly on the unit during operation, increasing stability and reducing the chance of shifting.
Agriculture – When you need to move sod, mulch, feed, or fertilizer, look no further than the Navigator RT-4000. Featuring a 4,000 lb lift capacity, compact design, impressive maneuverability, and rugged all-terrain tires, it can make short work of any job on the farm. Adding the optional self-sealing agricultural bar tread tires adds increased traction in even the most severe conditions, allowing the unit to work in conditions that few other lifts can.
Industrial – The Navigator series is perfect for moving materials around production plants and to other locations without the need for a loading dock. Each unit mounts and dismounts in less than 60 seconds, allowing you to move materials and travel between locations in less time. The optional “Nav-Reach” extension also allows you to unload a truck bed or trailer from one side, making it perfect for confined spaces. This also ensures that you don’t have to move the truck to access the other side.
Truck-Mounted Forklift Specialists – Since 1987, Chrisman Manufacturing has been a leading producer of piggyback forklifts. Their Navigator series has been designed from the ground up to be simple, durable, easy to maintain, and reliable. This means that you can operate with confidence, knowing that you have a quality machine backed by one-on-one support straight from the factory.
Power in Any Terrain – Every Navigator truck-mounted forklift comes standard with rugged all-terrain tires. This allows them to carry loads in less than ideal conditions and on uneven terrain. Adding the optional self-sealing agricultural bar tread tires further improves traction, allowing you to operate in wet and muddy conditions with ease.
Load & Unload with Ease – The Navigator series features a compact, easy to maneuver design that allows the operator to mount and unmount in less than 60 seconds. The optional “Nav-Reach” extension further improves productivity by allowing you to unload a truck bed or trailer from one side. This means that you don’t have to navigate to the other side or move the truck to another position, making it perfect for confined spaces.
