Prins Maasdijk “TRIKE” Forklift

The TRIKE represents a leap forward in forklift technology targeted for the horticulture industry. Engineered with widely spaced front wheels, and closely spaced rear wheels, the TRIKE can traverse even the loosest, most difficult terrain smoothly and without digging into the surface. WHY? Because the spacing of the large front and rear tires ensures that they don’t ride in the same track, keeping rutting to a minimum.

Couple this design with a powerful, fuel efficient “Kubota” diesel engine, state-of-the-art hydrostatic transmission, and a built-in ride stabilizer for smoothly carrying pots/trays, and we think that the “TRIKE” is changing the game for moving plants around horticulture operations.

The hydrostatic transmission also makes a “hands off” pot spacing option possible. Various spacing options can be programmed into the controller and when selected, the TRIKE automatically spaces the pots without any operator intervention.
