If you want to make better use of your storage space, speed up handling procedures and boost productivity, visit Stand 108 in Hall 6, where specialist forklift manufacturer Combilift will show you how. The companys award winning customised products, exported to over 85 countries, also ensure the very safe handling of long and bulky products, palletised goods, containers and oversized loads.
Combilifts range includes multidirectional forklifts and sideloaders, narrow aisle articulated trucks, an ever-growing number of pedestrian operated models as well as straddle carriers which can move loads weighing up to 100 tonnes. The exhibits at this years show reflect the companys ability to provide efficient solutions for the many and varied requirements of the tube and pipe sector.
Pedestrian trucks are an increasingly popular option as they are considered to ensure a higher level of safety where other members of the workforce are present compared to ride-on forklifts, particularly in busy manufacturing facilities. Combilifts pedestrian range includes counterbalance stackers, multidirectional reach stackers and powered pallet trucks. These all feature the unique, patented multi-position tiller arm which can be turned to the left or right to position the rear drive wheel, allowing the operator to remain at the side of the machine rather than at the rear. This safer position reduces the risk of incidents in narrow aisles, allows for full visibility of the load, the forks and the surroundings.
Exhibits will also include models from Combilifts original multidirectional C- Series. These robust trucks work inside and out and on uneven terrain in all weathers, making them robust and reliable workhorses for universal applications in the yard and warehouse. Sideways travel with long loads resting on the platform also offers greater stability and safer manouevering. More electric powered models have been added to the range such as the 8,000kg capacity C8000ET.
