Industries and Combilift applications

Steel Industry

A peerless solution for the efficient handling of high value, long and awkward loads, Combilift is a perfect fit for the steel fabrication industry. Equipped for stamina over large sites, our solutions are a practical alternative to overhead cranes even when ground conditions are poor. Indoor and outdoor operation avoids double handling and ensures efficient transfer of product from trailer to racking while eliminating damage. Narrow and guided aisle technology can double storage capacity for cost-effective operation.

Timber Industry

Built to tackle both the harsh environment of the sawmill and the tight spaces of a narrow aisle warehouse with confidence, Combilift’s multi-directional and sideloader forklifts deliver the safety and flexibility required to manage and store more timber in less time, using less space – allowing manufacturers to focus on meeting the needs of their customers more effectively, and delivering wide-ranging cost efficiencies.

Concrete Application

Combilift’s revolutionary approach is more than a match for the bulky materials and challenging conditions of the concrete industry. The capacity to operate both indoors and out eliminates the need for multiple lifts, reducing fleet size and minimizing stress on brittle materials – this benefit extends from our heavy duty forklifts right through to the Combilift straddle carrier for outsize loads. Combilift’s hydrostatic design and closed loop systems perform outstandingly well in harsh and dusty environments, ensuring reliable performance, 24/7.

Container Handling

Combilift takes a fresh approach to the handling of containerized loads. Our straddle carrier range is the product of years of research and development aimed at creating a lightweight, fuel efficient and cost-effective way to handle containers. Fully customizable with hydraulic cylinders for heavy duty lifting and telescopically adjustable height for double stacking, our straddles offer versatile, reliable and economical performance even when throughout levels are low. Three-point wheel configuration gives excellent maneuverability both indoors and out for safer loading and fewer lifts, while the lightweight design eliminates the need for costly reinforcement of ground surfaces.

Metal Industry

Combining the heft of a counterbalanced forklift with the convenience of a side loader and the finesse of an aisle truck, Combilift’s multi-tasking technology delivers a fresh and exceptionally safe approach to handling the long, heavy and sometimes hazardous loads encountered by metals manufacturers. Working seamlessly from indoors to outside, Combilift reduces overall handling, increases storage density and streamlines the handling process for superior cost-efficiency.

Building Supplies

Versatility is key for builder’s merchants and Combilift provides this in abundance, negating the need for several different machines to do different jobs for a more efficient way of working. Combilift’s customized approach allows our clients to specify various unique features on one forklift, enabling them to handle everything from palletized loads to lengths of structural timber safely and with ease Combilift’s four directional technology also allows merchants to rethink their warehouse space, increasing capacity and providing excellent cost efficiencies.

Warehousing & Logistics

Capacity is king in the warehousing and logistics industry and Combilift has built a global reputation for its ability to deliver maximum storage efficiency. Clever design enables our customers to operate in aisles as narrow as 1.6m and can increase storage density by up to 100% without the need for additional bricks and mortar.Combilift’s ultra-efficient Aisle-Master forklift and pedestrian stackers can load directly from trailer or docks to racking and vice versa, so there’s no need for multiple trucks, multiple operators and multiple lifts. In an industry where space is at a premium and margins are extremely tight, Combilift delivers critical efficiency.

Food & Beverages

Fast-paced and dynamic with extreme pressures on space and time, the demanding food and drink industry requires an expert approach to storage optimization and efficient performance. Combilift’s expertise in this arena is second to none; our innovative Aisle-Master forklift and pedestrian stackers offer safe, robust performance while maximizing storage density in aisle widths as narrow as 1.6m and up to 13m high. Thoughtful design enables Combilift to travel from the sub-zero environment of the cold store to ambient environments and back again without issues, delivering major efficiencies for our clients.


Impressive handling and robust construction make Combilift a valuable tool for any agricultural business, whether you need a general purpose lifting and handling workhorse or a truck engineered to the needs of a specific industry such as poultry. Large diameter tyres, all-wheel traction, differential lock, and additional ground clearance are just some of the features that make Combilift the right choice for agricultural applications. Ultra-smooth controls permit quieter, more refined handling for optimal livestock welfare.
