Birmingham Manufacturer Launches World’s Smallest Battery-Powered Counterbalance Truck

The smallest and most powerful battery-powered counterbalance truck in the world has been launched by Wilmat, the West Midlands based manufacturer of materials handling equipment.

The Bulldog heavy duty counterbalance truck was developed by the firm in Steward Street, Birmingham, to offer unprecedented manoeuvrability in even the smallest of spaces coupled with real lifting power.

Wilmat’s Managing Director, Teresa Hands, says: “It’s fantastic news to be able to announce that as a Birmingham manufacturer we are proving to be a real world leader in our industry.

“From the initial design stages we felt that we were developing something very special and we truly believe we have delivered a product that is the best at what it does anywhere on the planet. We look forward with great optimism to developing new markets, as well as growing existing ones, with the Bulldog and our other handling equipment solutions.”

The smallest Bulldog (1933mm in length) has a 300kg lifting capacity and a lift height of up to 3300mm.

Wilmat’s Sales and Technical Director, Andrew Capella, adds: “The response from our customers, some of which are local to the West Midlands, has been very positive. Space is of a premium in most warehouses and factories and in using a truck of this size customers can free up valuable floor space, streamlining their operations, and ultimately make real cost savings.”

The extended product range offers heavier lifting capacities of up to 2500kg and these larger machines come with Electronic Powered Steering as standard. Overall, the Bulldog range offers lifting heights from 1500mm up to 4660mm.
