This industrial truck is required to work on elevators and mezzanines. Because of this, its gross weight and tire-ground pressures had to meet stringent limits. This was achieved by incorporating a special bale clamp made from light-weight, high-strength materials and through a structural frame which provided enough weight for counterbalance and strength, yet without exceeding the customer’s limitations.

Other special features include an EE rating in accordance with UL 583 specifications and a narrow, high-visibility mast.
