Transdek to launch four-pallet V2G lift at CV Show03 March 2020

Transdek UK is launching a new four-pallet version of its V2G (Vehicle-to-Ground) lift at next month’s Commercial Vehicle Show (NEC, Birmingham; 28-30 April).

The four-pallet, four-tonne V2G will be exhibited alongside one of Transdek’s latest 10-pallet V2G loading systems, both of which are part of an order for an international online retailer.

Transdek says the lifts have eliminated the need for forklift trucks in the yard at the retailer’s level-access distribution centres.

The four-pallet unit is described as a “ready-clad, surface-mounted, plug-and-play pod”, installed directly on to the yard or warehouse floor. It can handle loading/unloading of all goods vehicles, from 7.5-tonne trucks to shipping containers and powered double-deckers, at any warehouse with flat-floor loading bays.

External cladding is supplied as standard, along with an optional roof module, so that loaders can operate in a weatherproof, safe and, optionally, temperature-controlled environment.

Leon Butler, managing director at Transdek, says: “We wanted to develop a new standard for the future of yard and dock lifts, to enable operators to work within a fully-enclosed loading pod, at the same time as speeding up the loading and unloading of vehicles.

“Our new lift gives a four-tonne capacity on both the up and down stroke, for example, whereas the typical scissor lift equivalent gives a 5-tonne lower, but only a 2.5-tonne raise. It also provides additional pallet footprint and twice the travel speed.

“Overall, we estimate that the lift can shave 15 minutes off the loading time of a full artic, compared to most yard scissor lifts.”

The four-tonne lift features a HMI control panel and optional mobile login capability for remote troubleshooting.
