Translift-Bendi launches new low-price range

Translift Bendi, is launching its biggest range of new forklift trucks for years. The pioneer of the articulated forklift, has released the new range to best-reflect buyers’ varying needs at lower prices that they say will match high-end reach trucks.

The B318, the B420l, the B420 Hi-Lift and the truck nicknamed the “External”, will use components from the existing Bendi range.

The B318 is the 1800kg bigger brother of the B313 and will lift up to 10 mts. It is aimed at the user who does not need all the benefits of rear-wheel drive offers and is satisfied with the operation and cost benefits that front-wheel drive articulated trucks have to offer. All trucks will work in 1,600 mm wide aisles. Some 150 mm less than competing articulated trucks.

Translift admit to be most excited about the launjch of the “External”. Designed to take the outdoor capabilities of the Bendi still further, the “External” is fitted with four special compound rubber wheels that provide a more comfortable ride than conventional, four-wheel counterbalanced trucks.

Simon Brown, managing director of Translift Bendi, said: “It’s an exciting period for us as we have a new range of trucks that are built from components that we know and trust but packaged in such a way that they offer better performance and space usage at more aggressive prices.”
