New Sideloaders and Multi-Directional Forklifts

Leavitt Machinery is your destination for new sideloaders and multi-directional forklifts. These units provide a complete solution for long load handling and confined spaces. Compared to a traditional forklift, our new sideloaders offer a safer and more effective handling solution. By resting the load on the platform of the machine, it remains more stable and is less likely to be damaged during transport. Sideloaders also allow you to carry the load length-ways instead of side-ways, allowing you to optimize storage and aisle space.

Whether you’re working with lumber, metal, or other long materials, our team can help. Each new multi-directional forklift and sideloader in our inventory is designed for demanding applications. With higher lift capacities, ergonomic cabs, and rugged reliability, you’ll be able to operate with confidence regardless of the job.

The Advantages of Our New Sideloaders

Long loads typically need to be held aloft when transporting them with a conventional forklift. This is both an unsafe practice and a process that requires a lot of room for operation. By choosing one of our new sideloaders, you’re greatly reducing the space required to transport long loads. This is due to their unique construction and operation that allows for sideways transportation of materials. By transporting loads in this way, you’re able to drastically reduce the distance between aisles. This in turn allows you to place more shelves in the same space, optimizing your storage capacity.

Every new multi-directional forklift and sideloader in our inventory is built with the operator in mind. That’s why each unit features an ergonomic cab with impressive visibility and practical, responsive controls. Each cab can also be outfitted with various options including air conditioning, USB ports, presence detection, and more. This ensures that the operator remains comfortable, confident, and productive throughout the day.


Whether you’re working indoors or outside, our new sideloaders and multi-directional forklifts can tackle any application. An integrated platform allows the load to rest on the unit during transport. This reduces the chance of damaging materials while also reducing strain on vital components. By carrying materials lengthways, you’re also able to maneuver them through standard doorways with ease. This eliminates the need for micro adjustments and turns commonly seen while using a traditional forklift. As a result, you’re able to move more materials in less time, all while reducing strain on your equipment.
