SHD FC 2016

March 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 for 2016.

New for 2016 will be a premium range of Bendi articulated forklifts, a versatile VNA truck that operates in 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.

This new exciting range of trucks compliments the UK line up while offering some additional benefits, including all new hi-visibility masts, superfast lift and lower speeds, adjustable overhead guards and a smoother ride on larger tyres, taking a retrospective page from earlier Bendi models.

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.

Fast lift, lower and travel speeds combined with the tight turning radius of the Translift Drexel provides excellent manoeuvrability and increased productivity. The electric range has an optional roll-out battery compartment allowing fast battery changes for multi-shift operations, and wire guidance is also a standard option allowing safe, full-speed travel in the narrowest aisles.

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.
