MaxTruck 2T Counter Balance Truck with 360° 4-way possibilities
MaxTruck, the unique omni-directional forklift from Sweden equipped with the patented Max Wheel, saves work space and driving distance. This efficient and ergonomic forklift is ready for the global market and we are looking for dealer and distributors. Contact us for further information.

Efficient, Flexible, Ergonomic and Environmentally Friendly – MaxTruck 2T is the Omni-directional counter balance.

A unique forklift within the global market, the MaxTruck 2T is a 2 ton electric counter balance truck which is able to drive in any direction, which ensures greater flexibility and more efficiency when working in small areas. The truck has a lifting capacity of 2 ton and a maximum lift height of up to 4.2 meter.

The MaxTruck 2T can be used in several different applications within Production, Logistics and Maintenance. The forklift's  flexibility and efficiency allows you to reduce a truck fleet by 2-3 units.

Changing battery is easy and can be done by one person
Although MaxTruck 2T has a high level of innovation it is also based on well-known technologies.

MaxTruck 2T is a 4 wheeled multi-directional forklift equipped with the patented Max Wheel,  previously used in lifts and lifting equipment for clients in the aircraft manufacturing industry in the United States. The Max Wheel gives MaxTruck 2T a unique way of mobility. But this is not the only benefit of Maxtruck 2T. The truck has great environmental benefits thanks to low power and oil consumption, and short drive distances compared to conventional forklifts.

Thanks to the unique construction the MaxTruck 2T needs up to 60 % less working area and will save up to 90% in drive distance compared to a traditional counter balance truck. The efficiency of MaxTruck 2T will also reduce energy consumption when compared to a traditional forklift. In a case of multi shift usage, MaxTruck 2T is also a highly ergonomic battery changing system, which can be operated by a single person without any Hand Pallet Truck or Electric Pedestrian Truck.
Always 100 % free visibility
MaxTruck 2T is constructed to give the driver optimal view. Using a telescopic boom instead of a mast like on traditional forklifts the driver always get optimal view when handling material, or when changing any tool in the production. The driver can always decide drive direction when handling material which ensures safe and easy transport. This flexibility minimizes the risk of collisions and injuries.

MaxTruck 2T has great advantages in handling long loads in narrow workshop areas  due to the forklift's unique design, which enables it to sneak around objects even when transporting loads such as 6-meter-long beams on the forks.
The lifting height and the reach of the telescopic boom makes it easy to position the goods to the desired position.

The MaxTruck 2T can easily reach the second pallet

MaxTruck 2T can be used indoors as well as outdoors if there is appropriate working area. This way of handling makes it possible to unload a truck and then immediately lifted the bulky long goods directly into production.

MaxTruck 2T can be equipped with two different service platforms; up to 6 meter working height and up to 8 meter working height. Using the service platform the MaxTruck 2T becomes an electric boom lift with outstanding mobility and flexibility. Thanks to the Max Wheel, it’s highly efficient when tasked with maintenance or other work. Using the service platform the MaxTruck 2T is also perfect as an order picker.

Effective maintenance work with the Service Platform
The Lifting Boom enable heavy lifts

The attachment carrier, similar to those often used in the construction machinery industry, ensures a great flexibility using a variety of different tools. For example MaxTruck 2T can be used when lifting tools or goods in and out of machines in production.

MaxTruck 2T can be equipped with several different attachments to fit the application. Basically the application itself will decide which type of tool should be utilised on the MaxTruck 2T. Any kind of attachment can be developed and manufactured to fit the application at the customer's site.
