Vallée unveils new lift trucks that expand its wide range of material handling equipment

Vallée Inc., a Canadian company specialized in the design and manufacturing of lift trucks and industrial equipment, has unveiled yesterday to clients and the media two new lift trucks. The first one is an addition to its Compact Rigid Chassis Series while the second complements its Heavy Series.

The new 2CR18C two-wheel drive rigid-chassis lift truck is a very robust and compact material handling vehicle. Easy to handle, it can squeeze into small places and can lift loads up to 18,000 lb. It has a robust steering axle, full-view cab with overhead window, high-visibility mast, and its cab and engine hood can be completely removed for ease of service. This new lift truck was designed to meet the specific requirements of foundries. In fact, the 2CR18C lift truck was designed and manufactured following a request for proposals from Alcoa that was looking for a tailor-made solution. The new lift truck is also offered in a double-capacity version under serial number 2CR20C.

A second lift truck was also unveiled. The 4DA50C articulated four-wheel drive lift truck that combines robustness, power and adaptability will be the strongest on the market in the large capacity material handling vehicle category. With a capacity of 50,000 lb., this lift truck is ideal for handling heavy loads on uneven surfaces or in tight spaces. It has hydraulic power steering, full-view cab with overhead window, integrated monitoring system covering the vehicle’s 16 most important functions and a high-visibility mast. It is also offered in the 4DA55C higher capacity model.

“It’s with enthusiasm and pride that we are introducing these two lift trucks which are the results of the ongoing work, resourcefulness and vast expertise of our team. With the addition of these two series of lift trucks, we expand our line of products so we can better meet the specific requirements of each of our clients,” said Frédéric Vallée, President of Vallée Inc.
