Drexel Industries has announced its MDR (Multi-Directional Reach) line of narrow-aisle reach trucks in 4,500- and 5,500-lb capacities. The line offers lift heights to 29 feet, a 48-volt power system, and four steering modes. The vehicle will handle palletized products as well as long loads in aisles as narrow as 94".

A multi-directional steering system has four modes: standard, side-travel, diagonal, and circle. “Programmed-in” maneuverability permits steering in tight surroundings, narrow aisles, and around corners.

Ergonomic features include adjustable seat, headrest, and back support; swing-away control arm; support for both arms while driving; and quiet operation. A locator button requires actuation to keep the driver's foot within the perimeter of the truck during operation. For complete details, contact Drexel, 331 Maple Ave, Horsham PA 19044-0983.
