NEW MULTI-PURPOSE REACH TRUCKS FROM SIDETRACKER. Sidetracker Engineering has expanded its model range with the launch of a series of compact multi-purpose multi-directional reach trucks designed for handling pallets and long-loads with maximum manoeuvrability.
The new SBF model is available in electric or LPG versions with load capacities from 2.5 to six tonnes and a wide choice of mast heights. It can be fitted with small wheels for use on smooth surfaces or larger wheels and soft tyres for rougher conditions.
The truck is extremely compact, which allows it to operate usually in aisles less than 1.8 metres wide. The multi-directional steering system enables it to travel sideways when carrying long loads or forwards like a conventional counterbalance truck, and it can also rotate on the spot to maximise manoeuvrability and minimise turning space.
A forward-facing seat allows drivers to mount and dismount easily in narrow aisles, and a full weatherproof cab can be fitted as an option for outside use. Fork spread is powered, so fork width can be adjusted quickly from zero to two metres. Cab design and deck lengths can be tailored to suit customers' needs
The use of electro-hydraulic rather than electronic systems gives a degree of reliability and durability. Electric models have twin motors that run singly or in tandem according to demand and can be used with just one motor operational.
