Are you looking to optimise your storage space? Then you need the EMA II 17 forklift! With its 220° articulated mast and compact dimensions, this little machine can help you increase storage capacity by up to 45%. It can easily weave its way through aisles measuring at least 1.9 m in width and can place and remove items at up to 7 m in height.

The EMA II 17 really is an asset to productivity as it can be used both indoors and outdoors thanks to its generous ground clearance and four soft rubber wheels, all of which translates to reduced handling costs and costly double handling operations over time as well as optimised storage surfaces.
