Forklifts are usually powered by electric battery or combustion engines, however there are manual types which allow smaller cargos to be moved in narrower spaces.

Some forklifts allow the operators to sit while driving and operating the machine, and others require the operator to stand.

Electric forklifts with front forks

This deep storage solution uses a semi-automated shuttle system to store and retrieve palletised goods from shelves.

The radio shuttle is placed on the shelf by a forklift or reach truck. With the Radioshuttle, operators save a lot of time because their only task is to get the pallet to the shelf entrance.

During the time the Radioshuttle takes the pallet to its final position, the operator has time to pick up the next pallet.

Thus, the number of pallets stored will be higher for the same period of time, increasing productivity and lowering operational costs.- Load capacity up to 1800 kg

– Suitable for several types of loads
– Shuttle racking system
– Aisleless shelving
– Intelligent use of space
– Different working environments (cold store)

Forklifts with combustion and front forks

Internal combustion (IC) forklifts are in a class of their own when it comes to heavy lifting applications.

IC pneumatic forklifts are versatile powerhouses and are used almost exclusively outdoors in industries such as forging, oil and gas, concrete and more.

The IC forklift range is designed with advanced ergonomics, load-sensing power steering and excellent visibility so you can always get the job done. Provides stability and productivity during light to heavy-duty outdoor applications. Low noise and vibration levels and a wide range of available cabs contribute to operator comfort. Fast and easy-to-handle models are available with diesel or LPG engines.

We also offer internal combustion forklifts with elastic tyres for operations in tight indoor spaces. Hydrostatic transmission (HST) enhances manoeuvrability and allows quick steering changes, engine braking and powerful acceleration.
