New forklift boosts operator confidence

Marine Travelift has delivered a new M2300H (23,000 lb/10,000 kg capacity) Hydro M_Drive marine forklift to The Boat House Chicago on the Fox Chain O’Lakes. The Boat House is a one-stop-shop for all things boating and is the sole marina on the Chain O’Lakes equipped with multiple negative lift marine fork trucks.

The Marine Travelift team made a site visit to the marina in order to fully understand the customer’s needs, take measurements and ensure nothing was being overlooked. The forklift benefits from an increased grade package to ensure easy operation in all parts of the yard, now and in the future. It has an auto lubrication system for ease of maintenance and a camera system that includes a back-up camera and second wireless camera on the carriage to give ultimate visibility to the operator.
“Site visits and discussions on future plans are both essential pieces of any sale,” says Marine Travelift director of sales and marketing Brock Rubens. “We ultimately want to provide a solution that fits the customer’s current facility but also works with their future goals.”
Marine Travelift also built the unit with a very short 105in (267cm) wheelbase to achieve a more precise turning radius and lowered the overall mast height which is necessary to ensure seamless entry and exit through the barn doors.
“Our operators are more assured and secure while handling and relocating boats with the reliability and durability the new machine provides,” explains general manager Don Schnurr. “They have developed a strong preference for the new machine and it’s reassuring to witness the confidence in their expression each time they lift and manoeuvre boats.”
