Combilift Combi C-range multi-directional forklifts – available exclusively from Shamrock Handling Concepts in Southern Africa – have been designed to improve workflow efficiencies, enhance safety and maximise storage space in warehousing facilities. The Combi C-range, with capacities between 2 500 kg and 25 000 kg, encompasses multi-directional forklift trucks, which are effectively three forklifts in one machine – a counterbalance forklift, aisle truck and side loader.
“A key feature of the Combi C-range, is the elimination of duplicate handling of materials, which results in increased productivity and cost-efficient operation in warehousing and specialised applications,” says Marius Schutte, managing director, Shamrock Handling Concepts. “These versatile machines, with four-directional technology and effortless manoeuvrability, operate efficiently in confined areas and are able to quickly change the direction of travel, even in tight corners. Long, heavy and awkward loads are carefully transported down narrow aisles, through doorways and around objects, with no damage to the materials being handled, or the environment.
The Combi C-range has a low centre of gravity and an integrated platform that provide a stable base on which to rest long loads
“Advanced safety is a critical aspect of all our machines. The Combi C-range has a low centre of gravity and an integrated platform that provide a stable base on which to rest long loads, like planks, pipes and tubes, during transport. Because there is no need to carry the load at elevated levels, safety is improved for operators, materials and machines.
“The cab is mounted to the side of the mast, giving the operator clear visibility of the forks, load and site. Another advantage is the design of the moving mast system and hydraulic forklift positioner, which allows the operator to adjust the forks, reach out and lift and place the load, without having to leave the cab.”
Other design features include ergonomically positioned controls for precise handling and an adjustable suspension seat in the spacious cab, intended for enhanced operator comfort. These forklifts, which are able to operate indoors and outdoors in all weather conditions, have low maintenance requirements.
An important part of Shamrock’s customised handling services include assistance with optimising the layout of a warehouse layout, through space-saving solutions. By utilising the advantages of the Combi C-range, storage capacity of a site can be significantly improved. Shamrock Handling Concepts is also the sole distributor of Moffett truck mounted forklifts and supplies other leading brands, including Innolift and Agrimac all-terrain forklifts, as well as Multisweep sweepers.
