ROBUR lifts building skills at City College

Students learning bricklaying, plastering, painting, carpentry and other construction trades at City College Birmingham’s new six million pound North West Skills Academy in Ladywood are getting a lift from a new ROBUR SBC2510 counterbalance truck from Stanley Handling.

Plant engineers designing the workshops for the new academy needed a pedestrian truck with a small footprint, the lowest possible mast height and precise speed controls for moving materials through low doorways and in enclosed spaces.

The ROBUR truck offered a lowered mast height of just 1780mm and a highly manoeuvrable 970mm chassis. Powered lift and drive, electronic speed control, electromagnetic braking and an operator safety button all fitted the specification perfectly. Importantly, the college can now use a fork lift truck to collect materials and drop them by an outside door from where they can be moved on more easily and safely around the training areas.
