, Combilift's new pedestrian truck and the smallest model in its range to date has won the Ergonomics Award
at this year's UK Fork Lift Truck Association awards for Excellence

also focuses on delivering machines which offer precise and easy handling and the Ergonomics Award for the Walkie Reach underlines Combilift's commitment to providing the best possible environment for the operator.
The Combi-WR4, Combilift's new pedestrian truck. Click for larger view
is the first purpose built 4-way pedestrian reach stacker which combines multi-directional travel with features such as a pantograph reach, side shift and tilting fork carriage for handling long loads and pallets in very narrow aisles and is the only truck of its kind able to work in aisle-widths of 2.1m pallet to pallet.
With its unique patented multi-position tiller, electronic power steering and fingertip controls it is easy and effortless to operate: push button control rotates the rear wheel parallel to the chassis and back again which reduces the need for leaning, reaching and bending and minimises general manual strain when picking and placing loads.
