Broad Portfolio Hits New Heights

April 2016

For over 50 years, Translift Bendi has been waging a war on wasted storage space with the continual development and introduction of innovative products and solutions. From the Mini Bendi to the award winning Bendi Order Picker, each product or service has been brought to market by listening to the needs of our customers and trade partners; and it was as a direct result of many similar discussions that led to the introduction of a number of new and exciting developments.

New for 2016 is a premium range of Bendi articulated forklifts, the complete range of HUBTEX world class products, a versatile VNA truck that operates in aisles of under 1.5m, and a new low cost space saving solution.

Translift Bendi Premium Range

Available with industry leading warranties and servicing rates, the new premium range of Bendi articulated forklifts, built in the USA, are designed to operate in high intensity warehousing operations.

Designed to compliment the UK line up, this new range of trucks offers a number of additional benefits, including all new hi-visibility masts, superfast lift and lower speeds, adjustable overhead guards and a smoother ride on larger tyres.

The new range of three and four wheeled machines are all fitted with DuraSteer, a patented revolutionary maintenance free steering system that provides exceptional control and makes load placement and retrieval superior to the competition.

This Premium range comes with a 4 year, 4000hrs parts and labour warranty.

Translift Drexel

When it comes to maximising your storage space, nothing else measures up to the Translift Drexel VNA/Side Loading Swingmast® Forklift. With independently driven front wheels and dual rear steer tyres, the Drexel has a unique design enabling operators to rotate the mast assembly 90° and side shift left and right to allow easy stacking in aisles as narrow as 1.4m.

The versatile Translift Drexel gives you four lift trucks in one; performing outdoors as a conventional counterbalanced truck, a reach truck, a sideloader, and a VNA turret truck with rail or wire guidance options. Models are available in capacities ranging from 1350kg to 5400kg, and with three or four-stage masts with lift heights up to 9.5m. The Translift Drexel is available in both Electric and LP Gas powered models.

Translift HUBTEX

In 2015, Translift Bendi announced that an agreement had been reached with HUBTEX Gmbh to work seamlessly with HUBTEX UK as the distributors of their multidirectional forklift trucks. Well known for their technically advanced performance, build quality and reliability, the product immediately benefited from the service and marketing strength of Translift Bendi, which ultimately led to a number of significant orders. Following that highly successful launch and integration under the Translift HUBTEX brand we are delighted to announce that we are now able to offer the full range of world class HUBTEX products. Highlights of the range include:

  • Multidirectional Sideloaders - three and four wheel models with lift capacities up to 50,000kgs; and diesel, LPG and electric variations.
  • Order Picking Systems - tailor-made to suit even the most challenging picking operations.
  • High Capacity Reach Trucks - compact and robust design with lifting capacities up to 6000kgs.

Introducing SpaceMate

Innovation, Innovation, Innovation: The business model that Freddy Brown, inventor of the Bendi forklift, had as his mantra is evident in this exciting new development; the Translift SpaceMate. Designed to compliment the existing Bendi range, the Translift SpaceMate will fulfil a large gap in the marketplace according to Simon Brown.

"The new Translift SpaceMate is in the final stages of test before going into production later this year," commented Simon. "It will cost a 1/3 of the price of a Bendi but will still allow users to store pallets in similar aisles of only 2m wide! The SpaceMate will not replace the Bendi, which is enjoying its own revolution in large fast moving storage environments. Instead, the SpaceMate will fulfil a large gap in the market. Warehouses that want space saving but cannot justify a Bendi are left with traditional forklifts that require 3-4m. However, the SpaceMate will reduce the space required by up to 40% for 1/3rd of the cost."

The simplicity of the SpaceMate design and the ease of operation mean that it could be ordered on-line as well as through our normal sales process.
