LUCKY DRAW UNITES PALLET TRUCK AND TRAILER IN PERFECT MATCH

Could this be the perfect match? In what turned out to be an amazing example of synergy, King Group MD Ron Mileham visited the Linde Material Handling stand at the recent Megatrans exhibition in Melbourne. While chatting with one of the Linde sales staff, he was encouraged to drop his business card into a free draw, and as luck would have it he won one of three CiTi one powered pallet trucks that were up for grabs.

The Linde CiTi one may only have a 500kg capacity, but it is specifically designed as a powered pallet truck for “last mile” deliveries. Its compact dimensions and easy manoeuvrability are combined with a large puncture-proof drive wheel and rubber tyred articulated front wheels, all of which make it rather good at negotiating curbs and obstacles.

As chance would have it, these attributes make it an ideal partner for Ron Mileham’s own materials handling “offspring”, the Eziloader trailer.

The Eziloader is a trailer that can be loaded at ground level. Its 3 x 1.5m deck has a 1-tonne load capacity. And it uses industrial grade hydraulic cylinders to raise the deck to its travelling height of 400mm or lower it to its loading/unloading height of 35mm.

So when Ron travelled to the Linde Material Handling Melbourne base at Scoresby to collect his CiTi one, he took an Eziloader with him to check out just how well the two worked together.

Ron is pictured above receiving his CiTi one from Linde Material Handling Account Development Manager Tyrone Peterson. And you can see how well the two got on in a video posted on the Eziloader website.
