The MSI 50 is a one-of-a-kind semi-industrial forklift truck which can lift up to 5 tonnes. It can easily handle smooth or semi-smooth travelling surfaces thanks to its two driven wheels and a wide range of tyres to choose from to suit the situation.Designed with the recycling and timber industries in mind, this truck comes equipped with a hydrostatic transmission, making approaches and loading smoother than ever, with a knock-on effect on productivity. The driver's seat is accessible from both sides and is housed in a suspended cab for optimal vibration absorption.
