Compact Forklifts And Their Manufacturers
It was the introduction of hydraulic power and the advent of the first electric forklifts in the 1930s that paved the way for the development of compact forklift trucks. As technology allowed these trucks to be smaller, so it also allowed for the more efficient use of available space in the working environment. Today, for example, drive in racking is designed to have just enough room to allow the ingress and necessary manoeuvres of compact forklifts. MARIOTTI is a major name in the field of compact forklifts. The company's range of 3 wheel trucks with lift capacities ranging from 600 to 1300 kg are known for ease of service and for being low maintenance. They offer a choice of rear, front and all wheel drive options, all of which have electronic curve speed control. Despite boasting lift heights of up to 5.7 metres, these trucks are some of the most compact in their class. Another very popular compact forklift is the TOYOTA Trago 48 electric counterbalance. This has a reputation for versatility, has very user friendly controls and is available in 3 and 4 wheel configurations. The NISSAN Nomad is noted for its excellent fuel efficiency, tight handling and superior manoeuvrability in confined spaces. The on board diagnostics are reportedly first class. For those seeking to buy used compact forklifts with a heavy duty capacity, the HYSTER Fortens range of compact internal combustion engine forklift trucks are well regarded for their power, dependability and excellent all around visibility. They have an overall length of 4130 mm and are available in diesel or LPG variants. The YALE Veracitor VX series is designed specifically for heavy duty in confined areas. If a stand up used compact forklift is required, the CROWN RC 5500 series is ideal for applications where the operator is required to be frequently hopping on and off the truck. These 3 wheel compacts are fitted with the company's exclusive FlexRide operator suspension.
