Innolift's Straddle Loader is compatible with virtually any delivery vehicle, including Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster cargo vans, box trucks and semi- trailersClick image to enlargeInnoLIFT USA’s XXL Straddle Loader simplifies pallet-load deliveries for smaller manufacturers without full loading docks.

It lifts the load and itself into and out of virtually any delivery vehicle, including Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster cargo vans, box trucks and semi- trailers.

Operators can then easily and safely load and unload open and closed bottom pallets weighing to 1,100 pounds (about 500 kg). Heavy duty InnoLIFT models are available for heavier loads.

One person can deliver materials to a loading dock or a street-level facility, replacing liftgates, ramps, hoists and conventional pallet jacks.

Ideal for any “last mile” logistics need and its ergonomic design improves delivery efficiency while reducing employee fatigue, workplace injury and employee turnover.

It can also allow the use of smaller delivery vehicles, especially important when delivering to urban environments.

Both manual push and electric-powered walk-behind models are available, all featuring hydraulic lift.  

All units can be charged en route in delivery vehicle or in a the receiver’s facility. Unlike exterior-mount forklifts, InnoLIFT rides with the load and is protected from the elements.
