The PiggyBack® PBX Forklift
Applications: Lumber, Brick, Block, Pavers, Roofing, Drywall, General Building Materials
Back in 2000, Princeton introduced a truly innovative concept…a truck-mounted forklift that could unload the entire transport vehicle from just one side – even at the axles! Prior to this, an operator was required to unload the vehicle while dodging various job site obstructions and even oncoming vehicle traffic. The D50R changed all that. Combining two standard reaching mechanisms, the machine could easily lift rated loads across the bed of a delivery vehicle, eliminating the need to reposition the vehicle or operate the machine in undesirable conditions.
Today, the PBX truck mounted forklift benefits from over 6 years of experience in the application. With unique upgrades like greaseless bearings, serviceable scissor components and safety indicators, the PBX forklift has built on its predecessor’s reputation to make it the most popular choice in the industry.
The PiggyBack PBX, with its versatile “S.O.L.O.” (Single-side Off-Load Operation) feature, is Princeton’s second generation of double reach machines and provides an across-the-truck capacity of 5000 lb. This truck-mounted, rough-terrain forklift was designed specifically for delivering on highly congested or obstructed construction sites. It can reduce both delivery time and costs and minimize overall vehicle wear. In addition, the S.O.L.O feature can sometimes be used to place a rated load up onto poured slabs and even into garages or other places where overall height restrictions are a concern. Standard features and options including: 86”, 120” or 144” two stage masts; scissors reach mechanism with 77” forward reach; anti-stall hydraulic drive system with Trac-Loc drive control; load support arms; choice of tires; and a 52 or optional 62 Hp.(Turbo) CAT® Diesel engine.
