Heavy lift for narrow aisles

Tipton, West Midlands; Flexi Narrow Aisle has launched a 2.5 tonne addition to its articulated forklift truck range.

The Flexi AC2.5T operates in aisles as narrow as 1.8m

“Until the launch of the Flexi AC 2.5T, if industrial customers needed a Flexi truck capable of lifting heavy loads to heights of 10 metres or more you invariably had to compromise on space efficiency,” says John Maguire, sales and marketing director of Flexi Narrow Aisle.

“But, with its specially designed slimline chassis, the Flexi AC2.5T operates in aisles as narrow as 1.8 metres wide enabling operators to make optimum use of the available storage cube.”

The Flexi range has front wheel drive axles and the ability to articulate through 220 degrees,

“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,” Maguire says.
