The Light Capability Rough Terrain Forklift (LCRTF) is a C-130 and CH-47 sling load transportable, 5,000-pound capacity, variable-reach, rough-terrain forklift with fork tine oscillation and side-shift cab controls. LCRTF enters, loads and unloads Army International Organization for Standardization (ISO) containers. The extendable boom fork carriage removes pallets from ISO containers on trucks. The LCRTF is a significant improvement over the existing 4,000-pound capacity fleet because of its enclosed air conditioned cab, moveable tines and improved helicopter lift.
BENEFIT TO THE SOLDIER
LCRTF provides a safe and efficient way to load and unload Army cargo in unimproved and improved areas. The new LCRTF is more reliable, available and maintainable than the system it replaces.
