Why The COMBI-MR4 is a Must-See for Logistics Pros
We’ll be taking our pacesetting new Combi-MR4 multidirectional, 360° steering
reach truck to the LogiMAT Intralogistics exhibition in Stuttgart in May, but we STRONGLY recommend warehousing professionals start to make plans to review its capabilities for themselves ASAP. Here’s why…
Our game-changing truck, featuring full rotation of each wheel for ease of directional change on the move plus in a very low platform AND long load capacity, is already attracting strong interest and is likely to be in big demand.
We asked our in-house R&D pioneers to explain just what makes this electric reach truck a new chapter in efficiency for warehouse operators who demand uncompromising results.
Meet The COMBI-MR4
Developed after listening to Combilift users and applying thousands of hours of R&D, the Combi-MR4 has been extensively tested in real-life use and has been found to deliver substantial benefits. Warehousing professionals operating, in particular, in narrow working environments can expect to see substantial benefits from having a Combi-MR4 in their fleet.
A customer trial, delivered by working with a multi-site timber and buildings supplies giant in the Netherlands, revealed real world insights including…
- Swift operation: Combilift’s new Dynamic 360° ™ delivered incredible agility and manoeuvrability across forward, sideward and crab steer mode.
- Effective narrow aisle capability: Both models (featuring 2,500Kg – 3,000kg and 3,500Kg – 4,500kg respectively) feature a platform height of just 380mm and have been proven to perform in aisles as narrow as 2265mm when guided.
- Extreme versatility: Through handling of both palletised goods and long loads indoors and outdoors for rack to truck ability.
- Excellent driver comfort and safety: High visibility operator cabin, multi-function control joystick, AC-electric power steering and joystick operated hydraulic mast functions all made for a smooth ride and straightforward operation.

Testing the COMBI-MR4: The Trial
The performance of the Combi-MR4, and especially its innovative Dynamic 360°™ steering, was extensively trialled to ensure it would surpass user expectations.
Our test sites were provided thanks to long-term Combilift customer Timber and Building Supplies Holland.
One of the Netherlands’ leading suppliers of timber products and building materials, with 104 outlets across the country, TABS has been operating Combi-MR4 trucks across the Netherlands with excellent results.
Users found the innovative Dynamic 360°™ steering, a novel steering concept enabling operators to manipulate the truck’s positioning and orientation without the need to stop and change driving mode, to deliver outstanding vehicle agility benefits. Intuitive and easy-to-operate, Dynamic 360°™ steering is used by simply twisting the control joystick right or left to adjust the wheel positions simultaneously, providing crab steering and allowing direction change on-the-go.
The company’s latest delivery of trucks will work at its work at its distribution centres in Zaandam and Bleiswijk.
