The Bendi model B3/30AC works in aisles as narrow as 72″ (1.8M), has a basic capacity of 3,000 lbs. (1363kg) at 24″ (600mm) load center and has lift heights available to 30′ (9.14M).

The Bendi B3/30AC is a 3-wheel articulating forklift with a single poly front drive tire and solid rubber rear tires. Front articulation of 200, narrow mast and a compact front end allow easy stacking in Very Narrow Aisles. The B3/30AC can work inside and outside on paved surfaces. The B3/30AC does all the jobs of a reach truck in aisles at least 40″ (1M) smaller.


Equipped with the LandActive control and the Landoll DuraSteerTM front wheel hydraulic steering, the B3/30AC provides exceptional control and makes load placement and retrieval superior to the competition.


The versatile Bendi B3/30AC forklift replaces conventional reach and counterbalanced fork trucks in standard warehouse operations. The unique design allows operators to use it as a counterbalance truck indoors or out, while operating in very narrow aisles in your warehouse, replacing reach trucks that require much wider aisles. All tires on the Bendi B3/30AC are 18″ (457mm) diameter and the truck has great underclearance for avoiding floor obstructions.

*Based on 48 (1200mm) long x 40 (1000mm) wide load.
