STURGEON BAY, WI (February 10, 2015) – Marine Travelift Inc. announced today that it has an exciting new addition to its Mariner product lineup: its largest lift-capacity forklift to date. The M2800 Mariner Forklift, which is scheduled to ship to the first Marine Travelift customer later this year, will allow marinas and boat-storage facilities to handle loads up to 27,000 pounds (12,000 kg) and serve as an efficient, reliable complement to on-site mobile boat hoists and related equipment.
The new M2800’s greater lifting capacity comes with a greater lifting height to accommodate higher storage racks. In addition, its ability to maintain full lift capacity at greater distances than before, plus its array of standard features and options that incorporate the latest technology, will reduce maintenance costs and enhance ease of operations. To put it simply, the new M2800 will revolutionize the forklift industry.
Marine Travelift has more than 60 years of boat-handling experience, and it has manufactured marine forklifts for 25 years. From the beginning, Marine Travelift has designed boat handling equipment — including the marine forklift line — for ease of use. For example, its forward/side-mounted cab, recommended by multiple end users, allows for improved visibility and easy cab access with stepped entry and exit from both sides of the machine.
Marine Travelift’s proven history and performance in the forklift business has made it a valuable partner in the marine industry. Since last fall, it has delivered multiple marine forklifts to marinas around the country, with more deliveries scheduled later this year.
