When it comes to choosing the right forklift technology for your site, project, or for future use, it can be confusing to figure out exactly which model and type is the ideal solution for your requirements. CESAB supplies a full range of forklifts of all shapes and sizes, all of which are industry standard, making it the perfect brand of choice for your business – but which model is the right on for you? Read on to find out more about the types of project that CESAB supplies can help you with, and which situations they would be best for.
Short-term, low-weight transportation
When you’re in need of a new forklift to help with day-to-day, short-term transportation of goods and items, for example within a warehouse or indoor environment, then depending on your weight requirements, opting for a hand pallet truck might be the best way to get around. This is especially applicable when working in environments that require transport only over a short distance, or for items that may be unwieldy to carry but would be easy to transport by utilising a simple hand pallet truck system.
For items weighing under 2-3 tons, the CE low-lifting models in the CESAB range might be the best choice for your project, especially when it comes to moving objects across any flat ground and inside buildings or warehouses. For example, moving goods from storage into a vehicle with a tail lift might just require a simple hand pallet truck, though features such as brakes, quick lifting and more can be added to aid in that process. CE-H models even include a motor to make transportation quick and easy for when you need to get items from A to B as fast as possible.
Stacker trucks are a more mechanical extension of this design, with models like the S100 and S200 combining the practicality of a powered truck with the bonus of a small scale and easy to use functionality. For low-intensity use, much like the CE models, this series can provide the tool you need to transport lighter, but often bulky, items from place to place without worry.
Compact and quick
Whether you’re working in a close quarters environment where there are likely to be tight spaces and short turning spaces, then you need a forklift that’s equally as compact and practical, able to weave through cramped areas and still perform to a high quality. For construction and other internal projects, as well as the movement of heavier materials, then a reach truck might be the right fit for your next project.
Compact, productive and efficient, a reach truck is a step up from the standard hand pallet trucks, with the added advantage of greater manoeuvrability and the ability to squeeze through smaller space, and even lift loads over obstacles or blockages quickly and easily as required. The R100 and R200 are both equipped for optimal movement in small spaces.
For projects where space might still be on the short side but more lifting power is needed, or a forklift is required that can keep up with heavy demand, the R300 also offers the perfect balance between a more compact size and high levels of production, ideal for projects and sites that go through heavy use periods.
Heavy duty and hardwearing
For some projects, a smaller forklift just doesn’t fit into quite what you need – especially when it comes to lifting heavier weights, transporting more items or goods at once or simply moving faster and doing more. For many projects, it may be more practical to opt for a larger-scale forklift, especially in outdoor locations or larger facilities that require large distances to be travelled.
CESAB’s hardwearing, heavy duty electric trucks are the ideal solution for many, providing a high level of counterbalance for lifting from 1500-8500kg in weight in a single trip. For projects that require a large volume of items or materials to be moved, the B600 unit offers the enhanced productivity that can make your project run that bit more smoothly, while the cenTAURO 80 utilises a powerful motor to do more and go further.
Electric not the right fit for you? For intense outdoor project work, the CESAB engine truck range packs that extra punch, as internal combustion forklifts that are capable of going further and performing to a high level. Powered by diesel, these trucks can handle loads of 1500kg to 2500kg, with impressive lift height capabilities up to 6.1 metres. If you’re looking for something rugged and hardwearing, the M300 and Drago ranges might be the best fit.
