New Flexi promises greater manoeuvrability

Flexi Narrow Aisle has launched the Flexi Euro VNA – a four-wheel articulated forklift designed for aisles as narrow 1,600mm wide.

The new model, which can lift pallets to heights of up to 7.9 metres, is supplied as standard with treaded cushion rubber tyres with twin front wheel drive.

Instead of ‘pivot’ steering the Flexi Euro VNA has a  “true articulation” turning system  to help reduce the amount manoeuvring in the aisleways.

The company says that in a 1600mm wide aisle the Flexi Euro VNA needs only one articulation to put-away a standard ISO pallet.

John Maguire, sales and marketing director of Flexi Narrow Aisle, said: “We believe that with its True Radius articulation principle, the Flexi Euro VNA can reduce the amount of movements that an operator has to make in the aisle during the stacking and de-stacking cycle by half.”
