COMBILIFT LAUNCHES POW­ERED PAL­LET TRUCK WITH STAN­DARD LIFT CA­PAC­I­TIES OF 3,000AND 6,000 KG

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANCE -

Combilift has launched a new high ca­pac­ity pow­ered pal­let truck, the Combi-ppt, which comes with stan­dard lift ca­pac­i­ties of 3,000 kg and 6,000 kg, with higher ca­pac­ity mod­els from

7,000 kg to 16,000 kg avail­able on re­quest.

The Combi-ppt in­cludes a fea­ture com­mon to all Combilift’s pedes­trian mod­els, its mul­ti­po­si­tion tiller arm. This en­ables the op­er­a­tor to stand at the side of the unit rather than at the rear (as is the case with other walk be­hind brands), giv­ing op­er­a­tors vis­i­bil­ity of loads and their sur­round­ings.

The op­er­a­tor’s po­si­tion also elim­i­nates any pos­si­bil­ity of crush risk when work­ing in con­fined ar­eas and pre­vents prod­uct dam­age.

The Combi-ppt’s au­to­matic fold­ing plat­form is an added ben­e­fit for op­er­a­tors when large dis­tances have to be cov­ered in a ware­house or pro­duc­tion plant. The power steer­ing, dual rear wheel drive and AC mo­tor tech­nol­ogy make it stress free for op­er­a­tors as it glides across the floor even when mov­ing very heavy loads and its ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity en­ables tight cor­ners to be ne­go­ti­ated safely and with ease.

Martin Mcvicar, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Combilift, said: “With the in­tro­duc­tion of the Com­bippt, very heavy loads can now be han­dled us­ing these walk-be­hind ma­chines, en­sur­ing high lev­els of safety whilst guar­an­tee­ing ef­fi­cient pro­ce­dures even in con­fined spa­ces. Combilift de­vel­oped its first pedes­trian mod­els (the Combi-wr, Combi-wr4 and the Combi-cs) in re­sponse to an in­dus­try de­mand to move away from ride-on fork­lifts. As a com­pany we are see­ing a grow­ing de­mand for pedes­trian trucks, driven by safety con­cerns where cus­tomers and/or em­ploy­ees are in the vicin­ity of op­er­at­ing fork­lifts. It is our in­ten­tion to sig­nif­i­cantly ex­pand our pedes­trian fork­lift range as can be seen with the launch of the Combi-ppt.

This fork­lift of­fers safer op­er­a­tion, max­i­mum op­er­a­tor vis­i­bil­ity and nar­row aisle per­for­mance.”
