The Handling Requirements
The company uses a forklift truck and a side loader in its depot for general materials handling activities, such as loading and unloading construction materials and small items of machinery - The forklift truck which was previously in use required replacing.
The dealer confirmed that the application was light duty, and that the forklift truck was only used intermittently during the day, concluding that a UTILEV truck was ideal for the operation. Due to the size of some of the materials being handled, it was determined that a 3.5t truck would be most suitable for the customer.
The truck was delivered on 1st July 2013 and has been in regular operation since, for approximately one to two hours per day. Mr Daniel Dietsche, the workshop manager, confirmed that the UTILEV truck is simple to use as it is comfortable to drive, easy to manoeuvre, and all of the controls are well placed. Furthermore, the truck is easy to maintain, particularly because all of the components are easily accessible and most importantly, the truck meets all of the company’s materials handling requirements.
