Forklift Rentals From Leading Manufacturers

Thompson Tractor has partnered with Caterpillar, the world's most recognized heavy equipment brand, since 1957. As the exclusive Cat dealer for Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, we can provide your company with a high-quality Cat straight mast forklift. These machines feature a front-mounted vertical lifting assembly that enables excellent stability when raising heavier weights at lower heights. Like all Cat products, our straight mast forklift rentals include a host of advanced performance and safety features. 

We offer forklifts in maximum load capacities ranging from 3,000 pounds to 10,000 pounds. Our equipment experts will help you evaluate all your options and make an informed decision.
