MSI 20

The MSI 20 is a semi-industrial forklift truck and is unique amongst its kind in that it is specifically designed for handling longer loads. With a lifting capacity of 2 tonnes up to 7 m in height, it’s won its fair share of fans thanks to its versatility and manoeuvrability for storage/removal and loading/unloading operations.

This truck comes equipped with two large wheels driven by a powerful engine, which translates to ease of operation and efficiency, regardless of the circumstances. This ease of use is enhanced by the hydrostatic transmission, for a precise and smooth approach to loads. Efficient and manoeuvrable, the MSI 20 will astound you with what it can do!
