The Pivot Steer Truck (also referred to as Bendi, Flexi, Swing Mast and Turret Truck) are designed to give optimal aisle performance. They are made to work in very narrow aisles and are capable of storing pallets in unrivalled 1.6m aisles, and to a height of 12.5m. These trucks resemble standard forklift trucks, however they have an additional function allowing them to swing the mast to a 90 degree angle.
These multi-functional machines can achieve a storage density that surpasses that of a very narrow aisle installation (VNA). Pivot Steer Trucks are highly regarded within the industry for enabling them to increase storage without expansion.
