4K Systems are delighted to have taken a new order for an electric counterbalance forklift from Harris Transport – the seventh such order in just 12 months.

On the anniversary of their move to larger premises and the introduction of a new fleet of six three-wheel electrics and two articulating Aislemaster WHE20 narrow aisle trucks, Harris Transport have added to the fleet to help keep on top of growing throughputs.

The new trucks are working 24 hours a day and are fitted with battery changeover systems and driver access key pads.

4K Systems’ David Scammell believes the equipment is performing well in what is a fairly demanding environment. “Electric counterbalance trucks can get a bad reputation for not being up to tough jobs, but with careful maintenance, modern battery chargers and the correct fleet management, they can prove highly effective at reducing costs.”

George Harris, of Harris Transport, stated that he was very happy with the support provided by 4K Systems and the electric trucks have been a good cost saving investment over the diesel powered Doosan equipment that they operated before the move.

“Moving can be a stressful process, as most people know, but we are delighted with the progress we’ve made and the benefits we’ve gained. We are also very happy with the service and support we get from 4K Systems – it gives us the confidence to invest and upgrade as we grow yet further.”
