The Bendi models B55AC and B55AC-HL work in aisles as narrow as *84″ (2.13M). The B55AC high volume model has a basic capacity of 5,500 lbs. (2500kg) at 24″ (600mm) load center and has lift heights available to 30′ (9.14M). The B55AC-HL (High Lift) Model has a basic capacity of 4,500 lbs. (2045kg) and lift heights available to 41 (12.5M).

Both the B55AC and the B55AC-HL models are a 4-wheel articulating forklift with dual independently driven rear-drive tires and soft-poly front load tires. Excellent traction, braking and power enable climbing steep ramps with loads. Three or four stage masts are available. Both models can work inside and outside on paved surfaces and have a floating front axle, allowing the truck to ride smoothly over uneven floors and do the jobs of reach and counterbalanced trucks but with much heavier loads and in much narrower aisles.


Equipped with the Landoll DuraSteerTM front wheel hydraulic steering, the B55AC provides exceptional control and makes load placement and retrieval superior to the competition.


The versatile Bendi B55AC and B55AC-HL forklifts replace 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 narrow aisles in your warehouse, replacing reach trucks that require much wider aisles. The Bendi B55AC has large diameter tires and the truck has great underclearance for avoiding floor obstructions. One truck can go from inside the dock to the rack, eliminating staging and additional operators and support forklifts.

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