Lencrow Materials Handling has acquired two new 12,000 kilogram EP models for its casual hire fleet to support the growing requirement for forklifts in civil and mining works.

The CPQD120 EP models are fitted with 4000mm masts and fork positioners with side shifts.

Lencrow Queensland Manager Rodney Jackson says over the past 24 months the requirement for this size and type of equipment has doubled.

"Traditionally the civil and mining works market was supplied much older units with large hours on them," Jackson says.

"We feel with the pressure they’re under, these projects need new or near new equipment to keep within
tight schedules."

Lencrow has also started to import heavy duty Liftking products from Canada, winning a contract with the RAAF to supply 12 all-terrain air transportable 6000 kilogram forklifts.

The units are currently being tested prior to supply with the last unit being installed in May.

Currently all terrain units up to 10,000 kgs are available in Australia from Lencrow and the company says it can supply units up to 25,000kgs.

These units do not fall into the class of compact rough terrains with many being able to forward water to 1200mm in normal operation modes.

Liftking International Marketing Manager Mark Aldrovandi says the company has been manufacturing rough terrain forklifts in Toronto for over 30 years.

"In that time we have learned to build units that stand up to tough environmental conditions," he says.

"We have units that work in all corners of the globe for both commercial and military users. Basically you give us an outline of what you need to do and we will or can build a unit for that operation."

Lencrow is currently in negotiations with the Terex Corporation to supply the Terex range of container handling equipment including both forklifts and reach stackers to 60,000kgs.

The range that was formally Fantuzzi has been used in Australia since 1994.

With over 15 years’ experience in the product range and the owner of several Fantuzzi units, Lencrow will supply parts and service to existing Fantuzzi and Terex users.
