Combilift at Multimodal, Stand 4085
Pallets, long and bulky products, containers and extreme loads of 80t and over can all be handled efficiently and productively with the wide range of products on offer from specialist manufacturer Combilift, designed for safe and space saving materials handling. The company will be demonstrating the benefits of its range at this year’s Multimodal show on Stand 4085.
Exhibits on the stand include the Aisle-Master VNA articulated truck, which operates in very narrow aisles for greatly enhanced storage density and therefore reduced per pallet costs. With versatile indoor/outdoor capability, Aisle-Masters have capacities of up to 2.5 t, and can lift to an impressive 15m, enabling every inch of space to be exploited. AC electric, LPG and diesel powered models with various chassis widths are available, and the range includes a cold store model.
Aisle-Masters make light work of loading and offloading in semirough yards and direct trailer to racking transportation of loads increases productivity by reducing time consuming double handling.
Tough, powerful and built to last, the trucks have an unrivalled track record of reliability, and low running costs. Electric powered models benefit from efficient 19.5kw motors, incorporating AC technology for improved acceleration and gradeability, and with fewer wearable parts downtime is rare and low maintenance is guaranteed. All Aisle- Masters come with a factory backed 5 year or 5,000 hours warranty as standard.
At the other end of the size scale Combilift will be focusing on its straddle carrier (SC) range as a much more cost effective and flexible solution to heavy handling forklifts, reach stackers or mobile cranes. The Combi-SC offers complete independence when moving containers and oversized loads around sites and loading on and off HGVs. A further major advantage is a much lighter unladen weight compared to other machines capable of lifting comparable loads. Weighing in at around 16t or less depending on the specific model, its much reduced ground pressure enables operation on poor and semi rough terrain, avoiding the need for costly investment on ground resurfacing or improvement.
