About Hoist

The BIG TRUCK experts. Hoist Liftruck is a U.S. manufacturer of high-capacity lift trucks ranging from 7 to 57 tons. From heavy-duty cushion tire and pneumatic forklifts to container handlers and reach stackers, all of our lift trucks and terminal tractors are forged in America.

Each liftruck is engineered and manufactured to maximize its durability, productivity and serviceability needed for the most demanding applications. This ingenuity also allows Hoist Liftruck to have industry-best lead times of 8-12 weeks for most equipment. With our U.S. roots dating back more than 95 years, Hoist Liftruck has extensive knowledge in high-capacity material handling equipment. We continue to embody the red, white and blue collar spirit with BIG TRUCKS forged in America.

Hoist Liftruck's corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities are centrally located in America's heartland, close to Chicago Midway International Airport, major highways, rail lines, as well as all our vendors.

Each of our liftrucks are forged in the USA thanks to our vertically integrated factory and partnership with domestic vendors. More than 75% of the material on each of our liftrucks is manufactured in-house, including chassis, steer axles and masts, with the remaining sourced from reputable U.S. vendors such as Cummins and Dana.

Our dedicated team of professionals strive to provide comprehensive customer service from initial contact to service and parts support in the field. Most Hoist Liftruck dealer locations stock a majority of commonly used parts that are ready for immediate pick up or delivery. Custom parts and components that are not readily available can be machined and delivered from our factory in less than two weeks.
