The Bendi model B40i4 works in aisles as narrow as *78″ (1.98M), has a basic capacity of 4,000 lbs. (1818kg) at 24″ (600mm) load center and has lift heights available to 30′ (9.14M). The LP Gas engine provides the ability to run 24/7 without battery changing or charging.

The B40i4 is a 4-wheel articulating forklift with dual rear-drive tires and soft-poly front load tires. The hydrostatic drive provides excellent traction and braking, high speed capability and power to enable climbing steep ramps with loads. Three or four stage masts are available making this unit excellent for loading/unloading trailers, containers and highway trailers. The B40i4 can work inside and outside on paved surfaces and has a floating front axle allowing the truck to ride smoothly over uneven floors. The Bendi B40i4 does all of the jobs of reach and counterbalanced trucks but in much narrower aisles.


Equipped with the Landoll DuraSteerTM front wheel hydraulic steering, the B40i4 provides exceptional control and makes load placement and retrieval superior to the competition.


The versatile Bendi B40i4 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, yet operates in narrow aisles in your warehouse, replacing reach trucks that require much wider aisles. The Bendi B40i4 has large diameter tires and the truck has great underclearance for avoiding floor obstructions. One forklift can go from inside the truck to the rack eliminating staging and additional operators and support forklifts.

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