Default Surface Pro's for Industrial Use

Hello all. Our work is looking at purchasing some Surface Pro's that can be used with our forklifts. Does anyone know or have any experience with using the Surface Pro's for industrial use? We are also looking for a mount that we can attach the Pro to on the forklift, but I haven't came across any solutions for that yet. Can anyone else recommend a product that would be a good fit to mount the Surface Pro's? Thank you!

Arkon makes a large range of tablet mounts that you could screw onto the forklift to hold tablets, that also include flexible arms so that different sized drivers can position the tablet where needed for best use while on the forklift.

Tablet Drill-Base Mounts:

However, I am not sure if they make one large enough for a Surface Pro.

We use a couple out in the field and they hold up great. Now it's not industrial-type use (sports fields, arenas etc) but they still get beat up a fair amount.
