Powered pallet truck handles very heavy loads
24 July 2018
Combilift has added to its growing pedestrian range with the Combi-PPT, a powered pallet truck with standard lift capacities of 3,000kg and 6,000kg, with higher capacity models from 7,000kg to 16,000kg available on request.
Combilift developed its first pedestrian models (the Combi-WR, Combi-WR4 and the Combi-CS) in response to the wish by many companies to move away from ride-on forklifts wherever possible, which are considered to pose more risks where other members of the workforce are present - in busy production areas for example.
With the introduction of the Combi-PPT, very heavy loads can now be handled using these walk behind machines, ensuring high levels of safety while guaranteeing efficient procedures even in confined spaces.
The Combi-PPT includes a feature common to all Combilift’s pedestrian models: its patented multi-position tiller arm. This enables the operator to stand at the side of the unit rather than at the rear (as is the case with other walk behind brands), giving operators excellent visibility of even the bulkiest loads and their surroundings. The operator’s position also eliminates any possibility of crush risk when working in confined areas and prevents product damage.
The Combi-PPT comes with the option of an automatic folding operator’s platform to enable stand-on operation, which is particularly useful when large distances have to be covered in a warehouse or production plant. The power steering, dual rear wheel drive and AC motor technology make it effortless and stress free for operators: it “glides” across the floor even when moving very heavy loads and its manouevrability enables tight corners to be negotiated safely and with ease. A range of optional fork lengths, widths and configurations is available – in line with Combilifts’ policy of supplying customised solutions for individual customer requirements.
