Bendi reveals widest range at biggest IMHX stand

Bendi reveals widest range at biggest IMHX stand

Translift Bendi will be unveiling its broadest range of products at its biggest-ever stand at the forthcoming IMHX 2016, which takes place at Birmingham's NEC on 13th-16th September.

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.

Each product or service has been brought to market by listening to the needs of its 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 is a premium range of Bendi articulated forklifts, the complete range of HUBTEX world class products, a versatile VNA truck that operates in aisles of under 1.5m, and a new low-cost space-saving solution; so it’s no wonder that Translift Bendi  needed to go for its biggest stand to date at IMHX 2016.

Translift Bendi Managing Director, Simon Brown, says: “With only a few months to go, the Translift Bendi team is looking forward to IMHX 2016 and frantically preparing for what will be our biggest show stand to date, and where we plan to showcase all of the new product line up.

“It has been interesting to note that while we have been making a few core strategic changes, the industry has been rife with rumours, so we are looking forward to welcoming all visitors to the Translift Bendi stand, and of course to the ever popular live music After Show Party!"

The new products being showcased on the Translift Bendi stand (11R61) will include:

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.

Designed to compliment the UK line-up, this new range of trucks offers a number of additional benefits, including all new hi-visibility masts, superfast lift and lower speeds, adjustable overhead guards and a smoother ride on larger tyres.

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.

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 1,350kg to 5,400kg, 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.

Translift HUBTEX

Following the highly successful launch in 2015 of the Translift HUBTEX multidirectional forklift range, Translift is now able to offer the full range of world class HUBTEX products. Highlights of the range include:

  • Multidirectional Sideloaders - three- and four-wheel models with lift capacities up to 50,000kg; and diesel, LPG and electric variations
  • Order Picking Systems – tailor-made to suit even the most challenging picking operations
  • High Capacity Reach Trucks – compact and robust design with lifting capacities up to 6,000kg

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.

Now in the final stages of test before going into production later this year, the SpaceMate will cost one-third of the price of a Bendi but will still allow users to store pallets in similar aisles of only 2m wide.

The simplicity of the SpaceMate design and the ease of operation mean that it could be ordered on-line as well as through Bendi's normal sales process.
