Forklift upgrade at Florida facilities Suntex Marinas has recently upgraded its marine forklift fleet with the delivery of a Marine Travelift M5200H Hydro_M Drive at both its St Petersburg and Riviera Beach, Florida locations. The new machines, which have 52,000lb (23,587kg) equivalent capacity, feature increased manoeuvrability with a shorter wheelbase and wide stance. The 160ft (49m) compacted wheelbase minimises tail swing, which allows the forklift to easily navigate through tighter spaces and improve mobility to maximise dry stacking facilities. “We chose Marine Travelift for the track record they have in the industry,” says John Purinton, general manager at Suntex Marina at St Petersburg. “The time to raise and lower boats has been significantly reduced with the new M5200H forklift.” In addition to increased speeds, the M5200H’s centre-mounted cab is claimed to offer the industry’s largest wide-view mast and features an interactive touchscreen interface which can be customised to display preferred PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE functions such as mast height, engine details, rearview back-up camera and important dashboard gauges. Other enhancements include a load moment indicating system, and a fuse monitoring system which notifies the operator of a blown fuse, eliminating the time it would take to check with a meter.
