SL30AC / SL40AC / SL50AC

Drexel SwingMast® Front Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Steer VNA and Sideloading Forklift

The Drexel model SL30AC, SL40AC and SL50AC work in aisles as narrow as 1.4M, have a basic capacity of 1363kg, 1818kg and up to 2272kg at 600mm load centre and have lift heights available to 9.45M.

The SL30AC, SL40AC and SL50AC are 4-Wheel SwingMast® VNA and Sideloading Forklifts with independently driven front wheels and dual rear steer tyres. The front mast rotates 90° and has side shift of 500mm, allowing easy stacking in Very Narrow Aisles.

These models can work inside and outside on paved surfaces and can perform the jobs of a normal front loading and sideloading forklift including loading and unloading lorries and containers, working in bulk storage, drive in rack, cantilever rack, push back rack, double deep and climbing steep ramps. The SL range does the jobs of reach, counterbalanced trucks in aisles over 50% smaller. The ability to store and transport long loads as a sideloader increases versatility and maximises utilisation.

Exceptional Performance and Manoeuvrability

The SL30AC, SL40AC and SL50AC's fast lift/lower and travel speeds and tight turning radius provide excellent manoeuvrability and productivity. The optional roll out battery compartment allows fast battery changes for multi-shift operations. High Visibility three and four stage masts are available for a wide range of applications including those with low overhead obstructions still requiring high lift heights.  Wire Guidance is a standard option on these models allowing safe, full-speed travel in the narrowest aisles.

Maximises Material Handling Productivity

The versatile SL30AC, SL40AC and SL50AC forklifts replace conventional reach and counterbalanced fork trucks in standard warehouse pallet handling operations. The unique design allows operators to use it as a counterbalance truck indoors or out, operates in very narrow aisles in the warehouse, replacing reach and counterbalanced trucks that require much wider aisles. The operator's compartment is offset providing a long load carrying side deck so these trucks can be used as sideloaders. The front tyres are 500mm diameter and the rear/steer tyres are 355mm diameter providing great under clearance for avoiding floor obstructions. The rear steer axle is articulated to provide a smooth ride over rough floor conditions. 

* Based on 1200mm long x 1000mm wide load.
