Flexi targets heavy market with 2.5 tonner

Flexi Narrow Aisle has launched the AC2.5T, a new 2.5 tonne articulated forklift truck, which can lift beyond 10m high and operate in aisles as narrow as 1.8 metres wide.

The truck’s rear wheels are integrated into the chassis so that it doesn’t have wheel arch extensions, which often the rear wheels are integrated into the chassis.

A heavy duty front wheel drive axle and a four-wheel Flexi True Radius chassis allows the truck to articulate through 220 degrees, and requires just one turn of the steering wheel to enter or de-stack a pallet.

The new model also features an integrated Zapi AC Power drive technology to boost speeds and provide more efficient braking with reduced battery energy consumption. It also has Flexi’s HiVIS overhead load guard with a laser cut cover plate to provide 360 degree operator visibility.

John Maguire, sales and marketing director said: “The Flexi AC 2.5T will meet the growing demand from our customers – particularly those operating within the manufacturing arena and the grocery retail sector across Europe – who have a requirement to lift heavier loads, unload two pallets at a time or operate double deep storage systems, but do not want to compromise on space efficiency and productivity.”
