  WD Model Turret Forklift

The WD series truck is exceptionally compact and loaded with todays technical features, enabling the highest possible degree of performance. Safety and ergonomics are prime factors in its design.

In the early '70s  PMH introduced the Depotlift man-down turret truck Model to the US as the EFL (Electric Forklift Lateral Stacker) series.  After many years of refinement and further developement the WD 13, and WD 15 take their place in history. Sold and supported under the PMH  STEINBOCK brand name the vehicles have been installed in driverless automated applications. With over 30 years of experience and history in the US, PMH provides unparalleled sales, technical and parts support for these models. For complete narrow aisle system support and prompt service, contact PMH  or your local STEINBOCK  PMH authorized dealer.

" Let the Pro's Handle It ! "

Capacities range from 2750 - 3300 lbs. The base capacity is not measured at the ground level as would be standard for conventional counter-balanced forklifts, but rather at the working elevations to ensure safe operation.

Maximum fork elevation for the Depotlift is 42 feet, the required working aisle width is only 16" more then the load insertion dimension or for 64" for a 48" pallet.

The WD is constructed for handling full pallet loads in very narrow aisles. The vehicle can be manually operated or automated to operate as an AS/RS - full driverless automated guided vehicle provided by PMH.
