The Bendi Electric Narrow Aisle trucks are available with three-stage masts, with lift heights up to 41′ (12.5M). Four-stage masts also are available on all 4-wheel models for lift heights up 26′ (7.92M), giving the Bendi high stacking ability, while allowing the low mast height necessary to work in highway trailers or travel through low doorways. Electric capacities range from 3,000 lb. (1361kg) to 5,500 lb. (2495kg). Stacking aisle sizes range from 63″ (1.6M) to 84″ (2.14M) depending on load size, capacity and lift height required.
The Bendi can also work in bulk storage and congested manufacturing areas, push-back, double-deep rack and drive-in rack systems, rail cars, and outdoors. The Bendi comes standard with a wide stroke side shifter and can be equipped with a variety of hydraulic attachments to further enhance its versatility. (These include integral fork positioner, paper roll clamps, single/double pallet handlers, double deep reach forks, push/pull, drum clamp and a carton clamp.)
The Bendi electric has a 48 Volt AC electrical control system with the latest in AC control and motor technology. Efficient use of battery power results in longer run times between charges and lower operating temperatures.
Bendi Front Wheel Drive Articulating VNA Warehouse Forklift
The Bendi model B3/30AC works in aisles as narrow as 72″ (1.8M), has a basic capacity of 3,000 lbs. (1361kg) at 24″ (600mm) load center and has lift heights available to 30′ (9.14M).
The Bendi B3/30AC is a 3-wheel articulating forklift with a single poly front drive tire and solid rubber rear tires. Front articulation of 200°, narrow mast and a compact front end allow easy stacking in Very Narrow Aisles. The B3/30AC can work inside and outside on paved surfaces. The B3/30AC does all the jobs of a reach truck in aisles at least 40″ (1M) smaller.
Exceptional Performance and Maneuverability
Equipped with the LandActive control and the Landoll DuraSteerTM front wheel hydraulic steering, the B3/30AC provides exceptional control and makes load placement and retrieval superior to the competition.
Maximizes Material Handling Productivity
The versatile Bendi B3/30AC forklift replaces conventional reach and counterbalanced fork trucks in standard warehouse operations. The unique design allows operators to use it as a counterbalance truck indoors or out, while operating in very narrow aisles in your warehouse, replacing reach trucks that require much wider aisles. All tires on the Bendi B3/30AC are 18″ (457mm) diameter and the truck has great underclearance for avoiding floor obstructions.
*Based on 48” (1200mm) long x 40” (1000mm) wide load.
Almost everything that makes the battery-powered Bendi the right choice for so many applications applies to the Bendi IC. Both are at home on the loading dock or in the warehouse, can go from trailer to plant floor, to narrow aisle storage without staging. Both navigate narrow aisles with the speed and agility that allow Bendi operators to move safely into tight spots others can’t reach. The main difference is our LP-Powered Bendi B40i4 can be refueled in less than 5 minutes.
This narrow aisle forklift features a GM 2.4L internal combustion engine designed specifically for LP gas. Refilling or removing and replacing the rear-mounted LP tank is easy, fast, and safe. The 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine is easily accessible under the insulated seat base. The engine is rated at 67hp at 2400rpm, and meets or exceeds emission standards for its vehicle class in all 50 states.
The Bendi B40i4 measures just 48″ (1200mm) wide, can climb 15% grades, turn in 9′ (2.74M) intersecting aisles, and stack 48″x40″ (1200mm x 1000mm) loads in 6-1/2′ (1.98M) aisles.
