Palfinger to unveil MBB models at Soultrans 2015

Following its great successes in the marketplace, the Palfinger tail lift for delivery vans (model MBB C 500 VAN) has been upgraded to boast even more features and innovative concepts.

The lift now has a 1,100-pound load capacity and can be purchased with mounting kits suitable for most common types of delivery vans. The platform of the standard MBB C 500 VAN is fitted with 900 mm roll stops plus a bridge plate; a version featuring a vertical split platform will be available soon.

Additionally, the dead weight of the new MBB C 500 VAN has been decreased, resulting in a larger payload, especially for smaller vehicles.

The second world premiere from MBB Palfinger will be the retractable MBB R 1500 S trailer tail lift with lateral gear drive.

This lift boasts a 3,300-pound lifting capacity at 1,000 mm load distance and is designed specifically for semi-trailer applications. It is the first MBB product to use a rack-and-pinion drive to move the lifting gear.

The popular central cylinder drive is also still available.

Both tail lifts will be unveiled at Soultrans, a licensed and bonded freight shipping company based in Independence, Missouri, Nov. 17-21.
