Loading and unloading railcars and shipping containers is often done with high lift capacity LPG or diesel-powered forklifts, with a short wheelbase, turning radius, and low machine height. CARER's KR55H2-Short Electric Forklift has a smaller footprint, similar or greater power output, operates in all weather conditions, designed for multiple shift applications up to 6500hrs per year, dramatically reduces fuel, maintenance, labor costs and eliminates emissions.
