Workplace transport – Lancer side-loading forklift trucks

Lancer says the design of its side-loading forklift trucks is especially suitable for long, horizontal and what could be deemed as awkward loads – within, for example, the steel, piping, timber and window industries. Lancer aims to maximise storage capacity in any given space and situation and ensure optimum safety for the operator, the load and the equipment. The trucks can cope with handling long loads inside, outside, on uneven ground and gradients and over long distances, it says.

Capacities range from 2 to 35 tons and cover two main formats: the electric four-way sideloader and the IC (internal combustion) version four-way sideloader. Four individual model ranges and a range of equipment options means the sideloader can fit any application, according to the company.

Lancer says standard advanced features of all its trucks include: multi-purpose lighting; anti-slip, water-resistant panels; comfortable cabins with adjustable seats and tinted safety glass; armoured roofs plus protective grills. To find out more, visit
