Meet our durable range of TCM  forklift trucks

The recently introduced T5C range include the 2,5 T and 3 T forklift trucks which are easier to maneuver, offer increased safety, and are more comfortable while operating.  

The forklifts have excellent balance and stability, which ensures that they are solid on the ground and move swiftly, with no mishaps and effective operation and hauling of heavier loads.  

The forklifts have increased visibility features that enable operators to see clearly both behind, in front, and to all sides at all times to ensure their safety and that of those around them.  

The machines feature a 44kW diesel engine which is optimal for strength to lift heavy loads while also moving swiftly and safely.  

The forklift also moves smoothly so that there are no rumbles and vibrations reducing operator fatigue.  

The forklift’s cooling system is a critical feature that ensures that the engine does not overheat from prolonged use or external factors like extreme sunlight, heat, or humidity.
