Marine Travelift adds to forklift linePosted on
Marine Travelift said it expanded its Hydro M Drive line of marine forklifts.
The company said increased weight capacities and shorter wheelbase options give customers the ability to grow their business through lowered maintenance costs and increased precision and efficiency.
Marine Travelift said it introduced the hydrostatic drive system in the mid-1990s. The Hydro M Drive line of forklifts has capacities of as much as 52,000 pounds and more.
The company said the redesign of the easy-access engine hatch compartment and the hydrostatic drive deliver increased productivity by reducing down time. Improved mobility and maneuverability help the Hydro M Drive achieve peak performance.
“The upgrades that have been made to each Marine Travelift product are always completed with the customer in mind,” Dale Harris, an authorized Marine Travelift distributor for more than 30 years, said in a statement.
“Whether it be a capacity upgrade to handle bigger vessels, a design upgrade to lower customer maintenance costs or a component upgrade to stay on the cutting edge of technology, these upgrades are always exciting for us because they allow us to offer features and benefits that no one else can provide.”
Marine Travelift built its first forklift in the mid-1990s. The company makes mobile boat hoists, marine forklifts, self-propelled transporters and related marine lifting products.
