Donkey truck carried forklift is unique because of its small size and light weight which makes it possible to have truck carried forklift capabilities with a Non-CDL truck. The Donkey is a piggy-back forklift that is lighter in weight than other truck mounted forklifts of the same capacity including Moffett and Princeton.

The Donkey forklift is built in Denver, CO and aside from the tried and true Kubota diesel it is built with all domestic components - from the GM 6-speed automatic transmission to the Prince hydraulics.

Simple to operate and maintain, the Donkey is available with many options and configurations to tailor the machine to the job - from sod roll handling and laying operations to a beekeeper model specific to the beekeeping industry. The Donkey's soft ground and rough terrain capabilities make it ideal for use around a farm. For Nurseries, sod farms, vegetable growers, landscapers, lumber yards, wood pellets delivery, firewood dealers, and moving paving stones the Donkey can quickly pay for itself through reduced labor costs.

Unlike the other major manufacturers, Donkey is a US company.
