Drexel SwingMast® Front Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Steer VNA and Sideloading Forklift

The Drexel model SL60SE and SL80SE are high capacity SwingMast® models that work in aisles as narrow as 1.7M, have a basic capacity of 2727kg, and up to 3636kg at 600mm load centre and have lift heights available to 7.34M.

The SL60SE and SL80SE are 4-Wheel SwingMast® VNA and Sideloading forklifts with independently driven front wheels and dual rear steer tyres. The front mast rotates 90°, has side shift of 762mm, allows easy stacking in Very Narrow Aisles. Both can work inside and outside on paved surfaces and can perform the jobs of high capacity front loading and sideloading forklifts including working in bulk storage, cantilever rack, push-back rack, double deep and climbing steep ramps. The SL range does the jobs of reach and counterbalanced trucks in aisles over 40% smaller. The ability to store and transport heavy long loads as a sideloader increases versatility and maximises utilisation. 

Exceptional Performance and Manoeuvrability

The SL60SE and SL80SE's fast lift/lower and travel speeds with tight turning radius provide excellent manoeuvrability and productivity. The optional roll-out battery compartment allows fast battery changes for multi-shift operations. High Visibility three and four stage masts are available for a wide range of applications including those with low overhead obstructions requiring high lift heights. Wire Guidance is a standard option on this model allowing safe, full-speed travel in the narrowest aisles. 

Maximises Material Handling Productivity

The versatile SL60SE and SL80SE forklifts replace conventional reach and counterbalanced fork trucks in standard warehouse pallet-handling operations. The unique design allows operators to use it as a counterbalance truck indoors or out, operates in very narrow aisles in the warehouse, replacing reach and counterbalanced trucks that require much wider aisles. The operator's compartment is offset providing a wide, long load carrying side deck to be used as sideloaders. The front tyres are 500mm diameter and the rear/steer tyres are 419mm diameter providing great under clearance for avoiding floor obstructions. The rear steer axle is articulated to provide a smooth ride over rough floor conditions.
