The KingLifter is designed and manufactured by Terberg Machines (based in the Netherlands) and comes to Australia with an impressive and proven track record throughout Europe. According to Clark Equipment, Australian transport and logistics operators have been impressed by its outstanding power-to-weight ratio, fast mount and dismount (less than 60 seconds), minimal overhang (1080mm) at the rear of a truck or trailer, and ergonomic design with safe driver position.
The KingLifter is available in three basic dimensions that can be tailored to any specific application, and delivered in custom livery. The KingLifter S is the most compact in the range and is ideal for restricted access and confined turning spaces. Its low tare weight and excellent load capacity make it a viable alternative to fixed loading devices such as the tailgate loader.
The most popular all-round machine in the range is the KingLifter M with its impressive list of drive and mast options to suit a wide range of applications. It has been successfully employed in transporting beverages through to building materials, agriculture and horticulture, chemicals and waste collection, petrochemical products, public works, internal transport and logistics, and long loads.
The KingLifter L is the most powerful all-round machine in the range. Operators can specify their machine from a comprehensive list of options including 38.0 hp or 50.2 hp direct-injection diesel engine, 1-wheel or 3-wheel drive, 4-way steering, 2000kg or 2500kg lifting capacity, 2800mm to 4050mm lifting height, super reach for loading from one side only, fixed or retractable legs, plus fork and wheel options.
