Underground Articulated Forklift

Here is another image from yesterdays underground session with Equipment North www.equipmentnorth.com.  “Articulated forklifts are easier to maneuver in small spaces than conventional units, and that’s exactly what you need in mine tunnels,” said Steve Walter, operations manager at Equipment North. “They’re relatively rare, though—especially ones that are small enough to fit in a cage.”Equipment North has a track record of working with customers to adapt equipment for unique work environments. The company regularly outfits forklifts and telehandlers with mining packages, including triple-redundant failsafe hydraulic braking systems, fire suppression systems and fire-resistant wiring."
