Meclift ML1612R

The Meclift™ Variable Reach Truck ML1612R is the only machine in the lifting capacity range of 16 tons, which can be operated inside containers. This reliable machine also features a unique reaching ability in its class. It lifts 20-feet containers from fork pockets and stacks them up to 3-high.

A hydraulically movable cabin ensures excellent visibility even when handling bulky objects. Meclift™ ML1612R is perfect for practically any material handling needs. The Meclift™ attachments enable to use the same machine for multiple purposes.

Intelligent design takes safety and profitability into consideration. Less work machinery on your yard results in savings. Spacious material handling area and good visibility provide improved safety for the employees and cargo. A comfortable cabin provides a safe and ergonomic work environment. Hydraulic, vertical movability of the cabin and the absence of a conventional straight mast ensure open visibility ahead even when handling bulky objects.

Customized Meclift™ attachments increase the functionality in line with the requirements of each work environment. This reliable machine moves swiftly in confined spaces, such as warehouses and cargo vessels, and it is easy to transport in a 20-feet container or on a swap body vehicle.
