READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE


Max weight 1000kg

Especially note instructions about lifting height. The truck is designed not to move when extended.

The high lift feature only works on pallets with an open bottom : often, this means you can lift it from the end but not the side. It is also possible to set a pallet up on spacers so the truck can go fully underneath. If the forks are inserted into a closed pallet, lifting above the minimum needed to move it will tear the pallet apart.
