Affordable and lightweight with a lifting capacity of 3,000* pounds, this unit is the lightest ride-on unit in the Donkey line up. The D12-3K has standard features that include side shift, strobe light, smart backup alarm, corrosion resistant features and basic truck mounting plates. Driven by a 1305 tier 4 compliant Kubota diesel engine and a 6 speed GM transmission, this unit is capable of reaching speeds of up to 15 mph for greatly improved delivery time for those really long hauls.
*Weight varies based on options.
Choosing the right capacity can save weight, wear and tear on your truck and increase payloads.
Consider your product and delivery environment when choosing a mast. Do you double stack loads, or have a need to enter areas with low clearance?
Single stage masts are lower cost, require less maintenance and are lighter weight. Two stage masts lift higher and have lower down heights.
Choose tires to suit your ground conditions. The Donkey is available with a variety of tire widths and tread styles such as, skid steer, turf or terra.
Higher lift height means higher down height and increased weight. Determine your needs and select the closest match.
Third wheel drive isn’t just for mud holes. It can be used for a little boost when climbing, precision inching and low speed travel. Third wheel drive is optional on the D12-3K.
Headboard width can be maximized to fit your load spacing. Wide loads generally mean wider pallets so spread your forks for the most stable set up.
Side shift is standard equipment on the Donkey. There is a total of 4″ of side shift, which equates to 2″ on either side of center.
The basic truck mounting kit comes standard with your Donkey. We offer a variety of mounting options to fit nearly all mounting challenges. Once you choose your Donkey and provide us with some basic information about your equipment, we will provide you with a mounting solution.
To enable customers to optimize their Donkey for the specific product/environment they operate in, we offer a wide variety of options.
