Award-winning products from Combilift at IMHX - and Design4Safety finalist

If you're looking for award winning products at IMHX, then head for Combilift's stands in Hall18 as well as outside the entrance to see plenty of them in action. The number of accolades from the FLTA and other bodies that this Irish manufacturer has collected over the years is testimony to its ability to provide customised handling solutions that stand out from the rest when it comes to design, innovation, ergonomics and safety.

Combilift is also a finalist in the Industrial Vehicles Category of this year's BITA Design4Safety Awards, which take place during IMHX in the last week of September. The product which impressed the judging panel is Combilift's unique, patented multi-position tiller arm which is a feature common to all its pedestrian models. It was designed to ensure maximum safety for the operator and other personnel who may be in the vicinity where the trucks are operating such as busy production plants, whilst enabling productive picking and placing of products in narrow aisles.

The tiller can be turned to the left or right of the truck and enables push button rotation of the rear wheel parallel to the chassis and back again. It allows the operator to remain in the safest possible position when working in narrow aisles - at the side of the truck rather than at the rear. This reduces the risk of the operator being crushed or trapped  between the truck and racking. The sight line is not impeded by having to look through the mast, guaranteeing full visibility of the load, the forks and the surroundings, for greater awareness and therefore safety. The tiller arm also incorporates a monitor which clearly displays the rear wheel position at all times.

Models incorporating the multi-position tiller arm will of course be on display at IMHX on one of Combilift's four stands, based around stand number L125 in Hall 18. These include the Combi-WR reach stacker and its multidirectional counterpart the Combi-WR4, the Combi-CS range of counterbalance stackers and the Combi-PPT powered pallet truck, which won the Safety Category of this year's FLTA awards.
