Visitors to the forthcoming IMHX 2013 exhibition will be able to see a particularly safe way to access the underside of forklift trucks for service and repair. The UK supplier of mobile heavy-duty vehicle lifts, Somerstotalkare, will be showing off its acclaimed Forklifter System on Stand 2-B55 at the NEC in March.
According to James Radford, Sales and Marketing Director at the West Midlands-based company, the system provides the ultimate solution for lifting trucks, for both maintenance and major component replacement.
"The Forklifter has a four tonne capacity and is suitable for three and four-wheeled trucks," he explained. "It can save firms responsible for the upkeep of forklift trucks time and money as it can be operated quickly and safely by one person. This reduces downtime and enables other staff to get on with their work."
James went on to say that one of the biggest benefits of the Forklifter is its mobility. "The system is easily manoeuvrable allowing the user to move the Forklifter system around the workshop, into different working areas if required," he continued. The Forklifter system is an added accessory to Somerstotalkare's existing mobile vehicle lifts, widely used by operators of trucks, buses and other heavy vehicles. It can be fitted to the firm's existing S6 NG Cabled Lifts or the S6 CF Cable Free lifts, which have no interconnecting cables or three phase power supply required.
"We're looking forward to meeting up with many of our existing customers at IMHX as well as introducing the Somerstotalkare concept to the wider materials handling industry," James added.
