The models of the Combilift C-Series range are essentially three forklifts in one. They can be used as a side loader, a counterbalance truck, and a narrow aisle forklift, enabling you to reduce your fleet size substantially. In turn, this is lowering your carbon emissions and making your operations more environmentally friendly. Using numerous forklifts is significantly more labour demanding. Therefore, removing the need to switch between multiple forklifts negates costly double handling and improves productivity.
Timber importer RH Wilson Ltd switched from a combination of conventional sideloaders and counterbalance trucks to a C4000 Combilift multi-directional truck and has achieved impressive results when it comes to space optimisation and stock location. Owner Rodney Dalton: “We were alarmed at the hours and manpower previously involved to locate a specific pack. With the Combilift we are down to less than five minutes per pack, which makes a huge difference when dealing with the four to seven articulated trucks that we typically load or unload every day”
