Combilift is an Irish manufacturer of multi-directional forklift trucks and other load-handling machinery. Established in the late nineties by a pair of experienced engineers with decades of practical experience, the company has gone on to be recognised as a major global leader in the industry, selling over 28,000 machines across more than 75 countries worldwide.

All Combilift models are built around a central concept that combines efficiency with ease of use, as highlighted by these features, which come as standard with every Combilift:


Combilift forklifts are the first multi-directional, all wheel drive forklift. Combining the technology of a side-loader with a forklift, they are highly efficient and manoeuvrable in even the tightest spaces.

Safe product handling

The Combilift forklift is designed for the safe handling of long-loads. It offers great stability; its integrated platform and low centre of gravity provide a sturdy base.

Saving space

With their unique all wheel drive, multi-directional steering systems, Combilift forklifts are able to move sideways whilst handling long loads.

Suitable for indoors and outdoors

Combilift forklifts are just as efficient outdoors as they are indoors. Whether using electric, gas, or diesel to fuel your Combilift, the requirement for having both an indoor and an outdoor forklift is entirely eliminated.

Increased Productivity

When you buy or rent a Combilift forklift, it saves you time and space and reduces product damage, as well as allowing a smoother loading and offloading process in and about the warehouse. Double handling is effectively eliminated, and the improved speed of operation of a Combilift model leads to a massive spike in productivity.


The range of Combilift vehicles are designed with the operator at heart, and include things like hi-vis cabs and suspension seats as standard. Spacious cabins, ergonomic operator controls, and full air-conditioning makes operating a Combilift a breeze.

Less risk of product damage

With multi-directional movement, sudden twists and turns in warehouse are a thing of the past. If you purchase a Combilift forklift, you drastically reduce the chance of products getting damaged during movement.
