I have just purchased a new 3.5t forklift from Machinery Direct for our business at Rocklea we have found it so far to be quite adequate for the job we selected it for. We are using it to unload containers full of imported trailers stacked 8 high flat packet, we use it on it on hardstand areas and copes quite well not bogging down plenty of power. Simple not over complicated controls, very little to go wrong with these units, easy access service points for guys or Gals with big hands. Happy to take ph calls or drop in and inspect our unit if your thinking about by one. Regards Andrew Sheen 0403731144 Budjet Trailers.
