A Complete Range of Heavy Duty Lift Trucks in All Capacities Up to 100,000 Pounds From its beginnings in 1983, H&K Equipment has always focused on high capacity material handling equipment like the TXi series of forklifts and the TS-9972 container handler, both from Taylor Machine Works. With capacities ranging up to 70,000 pounds, the TXi line features the ultimate forklifts for handling mid-to-high range loads in grueling day-to-day duty cycles. The TS-9972, meanwhile, is engineered specifically for ports and can stack 41 ton containers five rows high without a drop in speed or handling performance. H&K Equipment is proud to represent the complete Taylor Machine Works product line for sales, rentals, and service. Call 1-800-272-9953.

H&K's corporate legacy dates all the way back to 1935 when we were first founded as a dealer of Elwell-Parker material handling equipment in western Pennsylvania. That gives us nearly 80 years of experience in working with some of the biggest businesses in the steel and auto industries, many of which continue to use Elwell-Parker lift trucks for die and coil handling operations. This includes the L15 platform truck, which is now available new in a 25,000 pound capacity model. As the OEM of Elwell-Parker since 2010, H&K Equipment can service, engineer, and build new or existing Elwell-Parker lift trucks in any capacity. H&K Equipment is the OEM for all Elwell-Parker products. For parts, service, upgrades, or to invest in a new Elwell-Parker lift truck, call 1-800-272-9953.

The Cary-Lift 154 pipe handling truck is the newest addition to Pettibone's Cary-Lift line, only it isn't exactly new. Iterations of the model had been in production for years before being temporarily sidelined while the manufacturer focused on higher capacity entries in the series. Now it's back, newly redesigned with standard-setting features that reflect how material handling and pipe handling in particular have evolved in recent years. Coming in at the low end of the heavy-duty spectrum, with a maximum capacity of 15,000 pounds, the Cary-Lift 154 meets an important but underserved need for rough terrain lift trucks that are more powerful and rugged than smaller equipment, but are also more cost-effective than their higher capacity cousins. All models from the Cary-Lift series are available for sale or rent from H&K Equipment, including options with up to 30,000 pounds capacity. Call 1-800-272-9953.

The G12-55A telehandler from JLG brings the maneuverability of a forklift and the reach of a crane to your jobsite. Designed to transport loads off-road and over uneven terrain, the G12-55A has the power to travel to areas other material handling equipment can't, and it can do it with better cost-efficiency than other telehandler models. The Tier 4i compliant 4.5 liter Cummins diesel engine gives the G12-55A 12,000 pounds of capacity, while the sturdy boom can extend a full 55 feet. Large pneumatic tires, enhanced steering, simplified controls, and improved sightlines make this model a must-have for oil and gas development, construction, and other outdoor applications. The complete line of material handling equipment from JLG is available for sale or rent. Call 1-800-272-9953. Mobile Railcar Movers for Railcar Switching, Loading, and Unloading

To further improve productivity for railcar operations, especially in wild or unimproved environments, H&K Equipment also now supports the Speed Swing swing loader series from Pettibone. These incredibly versatile machines can do everything from laying rails and clearing track paths to loading rail cars and ferrying equipment. Available in capacities up to 15,000 pounds.
