Review: 2016 Victory VF25D Counterbalance Forklift
Victory VF25D Counterbalance Forklift: The Introduction
In the recent years, the forklift industry has seen tremendous growth, with hundreds of manufacturers releasing lift trucks of different capabilities and prices. With this fact, it now became even harder for businesses to decide on which brand to buy and bring to their day-to-day operations.
To help you solve this problem, we’ve gathered several forklift models from local dealers. We tested them to discover which of them is the best and can be a good fit for your material handling applications. One variant that has caught our interest is the VF25D counterbalance forklift from Victory. Let me share everything about it, including its features and what makes it a great addition to your biz, in my review below.
Victory VF25D Counterbalance Forklift: Key Features
The Victory VF25D is an ideal choice for businesses with light- to medium-duty operations. What powers this 4-wheel forklift is a Diesel Perkins type motor that is strong and energy efficient. The equipment also gets its strength from its automatic transmission. Upon testing, this allows the vehicle to move around the area without the hassle. Technically, it as well brings a 3-stage container mast that can carry up to 2,500 kg loads and can lift up to 4,500 mm high.
After testing this counterbalance forklift with the team, all I can say now is that it is something that should never be missing in your area. Though compact in built, it still has that strength to end the need to manually move materials from one place to another. Its pneumatic tyres and tight turning radius allow it to smoothly maneuver even in narrow spaces.
Personally, what I just don’t like with this Victory VF25D is its open operator station. It doesn’t sport an enclosed cabin, which I know is important in ensuring a safety operation during risky working conditions. Though apart from this, I already have nothing to say against this model. I am impressed with its sturdy construction, along with the nicely laid out controls and switches on its dash. Its comfortable driver seat and good visibility through the mast are as well something to brag about.
Although Victory incorporated their VF25D with parts that are durable, they still backed it up with a full service support and warranty. As we all know, such warranties are essential in guaranteeing that our equipment can provide us a long service life. To be specific, the VF25D comes with a 2-year factory backed and Australia wide warranty. You can talk to your dealer for more details on this.

Victory VF25D Counterbalance Forklift: The Verdict
With all these nice features and capabilities, it’s not surprising if the Victory VF25D will catch your interest, too. Truly, it is an ideal choice, given that it has the power to be able to tackle your tough material handling applications. It may lack an ergonomic operator cabin and innovative technology, but I still see it as a good counterbalance forklift truck that can provide you comfort and safety in any working condition. No doubt, it is a perfect inclusion to your growing business. I find it suitable for ports, factories, large warehouses, and shipping biz. So, until my next forklift review!
