Lencrow Materials Handling ’s newly added Liftking range of heavy duty rough terrain forklifts has helped the handling equipment company form a partnership with the RAAF.
Lencrow has been awarded the contract with the RAAF to supply 12 air transportable five ton forklifts, which are due to delivered by the New Year. The units have very strict size and weight requirements, are all four wheeled drive and steer and have the ability to work on any terrain and in water up to 1,200mm deep.
The Liftking range offers heavy duty rough terrain forklifts with 2 – 25 tone units that are built in extreme conditions and provides 500mm of ground clearance, wide track and long wheel base. Ross Grassick, Managing Director of Lencrow, had visited the Lifting factory in Toronto, Canada.
“I was impressed with Liftkings ability to build units to suit customer’s requirements,” says Grassick. “Unlike many manufactures today that have one model for each class of unit which in many cases, is not the complete solution for the customer who has to make do. Liftking manufactures the complete unit so quality control is all in house with many units being tested for more than a day before delivery. “
As part of the contract with RAAF, Lencrow Materials Handling will also be providing back up support, as well as training in the maintenance and operations of the 12 five tone forklifts.
