Compact Sidetracker for glazing contractor

Aluminium glazing contractor Colorminium has taken delivery of a specially designed Sidetracker at its manufacturing site in Essex.

The truck has been designed to perform all load-carrying functions at the site, including six-metre-long stillages containing aluminium profiles, steel box pallets, glass carriers, timber pallets and steel waste bins. It has to lift loads six metres high, pass through a doorway 2550mm high x 1680mm wide and unload delivery vehicles.

The truck measures 1550mm deep x 1250mm wide, which allows for the width of the doorway and generally meets the need for a compact, symmetrical shape that is easily manoeuvrable within the production areas, assisted by a full 360° turning capability.
