Meclift™ ML4212RC Variable Reach Truck, is designed to help with container loading and unloading. It allows you to do all the heavy lifting into/out of a container on top of a trailer. By using the Bogey Rollers attachment, you can move loads even heavier than 32 tons to the middle of a standard 20ft container.

Meclift™ ML4218RC with the Lifting Beams attachment is a unique combination for long and heavy object handling. By using this attachment, it’s possible to place rods, pipes and tubes into the middle of a 40ft container; no other machine in the world can achieve the same!

With the vertically movable cabin, the driver can position himself in the right place, to see either the forks or
surrounding areas which enhances occupational safety at the workplace and allows a comfortable operating experience.
