A multipurpose machine for demanding conditions

The Meclift™ Variable Reach Truck ML1612R is the only telehandler in the lifting capacity range of 16 tons, which can be operated inside containers. This reliable forklift truck also features a unique reaching ability in its class. It lifts 20-feet containers from fork pockets and stacks them up to 3-high. A hydraulically movable cabin ensures excellent visibility even when handling bulky objects. Meclift™ ML1612R is perfect for practically any material handling needs. It is superior compared to conventional forklift trucks. The Meclift™ attachments enable to use the same machine for multiple purposes.

Intelligent design takes safety and profitability into consideration. Less work machinery on your yard results in savings. Spacious material handling area and good visibility provide improved safety for the employees and cargo. A comfortable cabin provides a safe and ergonomic work environment. Hydraulic, vertical movability of the cabin and the absence of a conventional straight mast ensure open visibility ahead even when handling bulky objects.

Customized Meclift™ attachments increase the functionality in line with the requirements of each work environment. This reliable machine moves swiftly in confined spaces, such as warehouses and cargo vessels, and it is easy to transport in a 20-feet container or on a swap body vehicle.

“We have been using Meclift´s ML1612R Variable Reach Truck since 2010 for stuffing and unstuffing of containers with high performance and productivity. Handling steel coils, steel plates, sheet metal, structural steel bars, marble, and the stuffing and unstuffing of containers is easier and safer than ever before with the truck. It can handle goods up to 16 tonnes and 12 meters in length.”

“We use a wide fleet of material handling equipment and are very demanding when it comes to the equipment we use. Meclift´s ML1612R is realy a very unique handler in our range. With its 16t capacity and ability to drive inside containers we can safely load and unload heavy loads. In the past, container loading with bulky loads required several people involved in the process. Now, using Meclift´s ML1612R handler, we have been able to optimize the operations with these specific heavy loads: we do it faster, safer and much more efficiently!”
