Marine Travelift incorporates hydrostatic transmission to its marine forklifts
Marine Travelift will now manufacture all its forklifts with the Hydro M_Drive hydrostatic transmission system. To date, only the latest M2800H forklift model and the BFMII travelift had this feature. The current engine generates hydraulic pressure compared to the previous transmission system that worked thanks to the gearbox. The hydrostatic transmission is essentially made up of a pump, driven by the forklift motor, which sends oil with flow and exerts pressure on the hydraulic motor attached to the wheels. This new implemented system provides greater traction, flexibility and safety, as well as simplifying the driving of the machine and facilitating its maintenance.
Another novelty from the American manufacturer is the new 85BFMII travelift, with a capacity to lift boats up to 85,000kg, 27 meters in length and catamarans with a beam of 10 meters. This machine presents relevant novelties such as a larger compartment for the T4 engine, a G11 device that allows its status to be diagnosed via wireless connection with any smartphone and new industrial tires of 533 mm wide with 40 layers and fenders. In addition, the wheel axle has been widened in order to reinforce the support surface and facilitate lubrication and maintenance. The Lindley Group companies have been distributors of the Marine Travelift brand for more than thirty years in Portugal and ten in Spain.
