NA 2010: Navigate tight spaces with counterbalanced 3-wheeler

By Modern Materials Handling Staff
March 01, 2010

NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

Engineered for smooth transport of products and stacking of pallets, the model 4450 three-wheel, sit-down counterbalanced truck features a short head length that reduces turn radius, making it ideal for tight spaces. Capable of handling capacities up to 4,000 pounds, the vehicle features selectable travel for easy reduction of speed while unloading a trailer with a quick switch to higher speeds for long distance transport. Oil-cooled disc brakes generate longer brake life, while a common battery compartment allows for integration into mixed fleets. For clear visibility in travel, handling and stacking, the four-cylinder mast lacks a center lift cylinder.
