Kennards Lift & Shift introduces a new range of tracked all terrain forklifts to their hire equipment range.
The tracked forklifts are ideal for moving landscaping materials around wet or sandy sites and for work in space-constrained areas.
The hydraulic-powered adjustable tracks in the forklifts can be opened out to a width of 1800mm to facilitate the lifting of a pallet of pavers, and then retracted to 1240mm to allow the load to be carried down a narrow passageway, through a doorway or around worksite obstacles.
Similar to a telehandler in function, the tracked forklifts are more compact in design, about the size of a mini-loader. Their zero turn and retractable tracks make the forklifts more suitable for different job sites.
The tracked forklifts have a lifting capacity of 1600kg but are also light enough to be towed on a trailer by most work vehicles, saving contractors on delivery costs and providing them with more flexibility.
An adjustable undercarriage is a highly popular feature in Europe where the units are manufactured.
The new tracked all terrain forklifts are available from Kennards Lift & Shift equipment hire centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Kennards Lift & Shift also hires 2500kg capacity telehandlers as well as a wide range of other equipment for moving building and landscaping materials.
