The Combilift C-series multi-directional forklifts – available from Shamrock Handling Concepts – have been well-received by the local market, particularly for handling long and bulky loads.
“Combilift multi-directional forklifts, which have been designed for safe, space-saving and productive handling, improve workflow efficiencies and maximise storage space,” says Marius Schutte, managing director, Shamrock Handling Concepts, exclusive distributors in southern Africa of Combilift C-Range of multi-directional forklift trucks. “These versatile machines, which are effectively three forklifts in one machine – a counterbalance forklift, narrow-aisle truck and side loader – eliminate the costs involved in double handling and thus optimise productivity.
“These forklifts, with four-directional technology and effortless manoeuvrability, operate efficiently in confined areas and are able to quickly change the direction of travel, even in tight corners. Long, heavy and awkward loads are carefully transported down narrow aisles, through doorways and around objects, with no damage to the materials being handled, or the surroundings.
“Shamrock’s customisation service also includes assistance with optimising the layout of a warehouse, through space-saving solutions. By utilising the advantages of the Combi C-range, storage capacity of a site is maximised.”
The Combilift C-series has a loading capacity of 2 500 – 25 000 kg. These machines have a low centre of gravity and an integrated platform that provides a stable base on which to rest long loads, like planks, ceiling boards, steel, pipes and tubes during transport. Because there is no need to carry the load at elevated levels, safety is significantly improved.
Standard features of this range include a rubber mounted cabin, load-sensing steering, a 4-way lever positioning of wheels and 3-wheel hydrostatic drive.
The cab is mounted to the side of the mast, giving the operator clear visibility of the surroundings, forks and load. The moving mast system and the option of a hydraulic forklift positioner allows the operator to adjust the forks, reach out and lift and place the load, without having to leave the cab.
These robust forklifts operate safely indoors and outdoors, in all weather conditions.
Shamrock Handling Concepts is also the sole distributor of Moffett truck mounted forklifts and supplies other leading brands, including TCM, Combilift, Aisle-Master and Agrimac forklift trucks.
