Canada's Load Lifter has released the first of its new 4400 F Series with the 4414–20 straight mast model.

The 4WD/4WS rough terrain forklift with capacities of 20,000 pounds replaces the 14–year old 4400 D Series, said Operations Manager Dave Tughan.

The new unit has enhanced cab features, with better operator visibility and is fully isolated. The operator module includes seat mounted controls, full swivel and suspension seat, telescopic and tilt steering, and full cab pressurization. Its module tilts forward for unit service. Adjustable ventilation nozzles surround the operator and DBA ratings below 80 are achieved with advanced insulation material. The machine is equipped with a “See Thru” mast and a full range of carriages and attachments.

The machine will primarily be marketed in North America, though Tughan said the 4400 F Series will be available “anywhere in the world” through its distributor network. This series will have machines ranging from 5,000 to 30,000 pound capacities.

“All manufacturing is performed at our current address in Toronto but this manufacturing will be moved in about eight months' time to a new state of the art facility a short distance north of Toronto,” Tughan told ALH. “The new facility will house all engineering, R&D, vehicle testing, and full manufacturing capabilities.” The company plans to keep its current facility, which will give it more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
