Following an increased workload and company expansion, Enniskillen-based precast concrete products manufacturer Tracey Concrete was in the market for some larger vehicles. So JD Forktrucks has supplied two new Hyundai 7,000kg, 70D-9 diesel counter-balance forklifts.
Both machines are fitted with Fabcon Engineering’s lifting attachments, which are permanently fixed to the trucks, allowing them to perform their daily duties of shifting and loading heavy manhole rings. The forklifts work approximately 10-hour shifts so need to be robust and reliable.
Director Anton Tracey said: “Operators who moved from our other forklifts on to the Hyundais particularly like the better visibility offered by the 70D-9 and the comfortable cab, which has excellent suspension.
”They also said the machines were easy to get used to from a control point of view, are steady on uneven ground and can handle all types of terrain.”
