The Mariotti mini the smallest forklift truck in the world, measuring just 1095 mm in length. Compared to larger models it is capable of operating where no other forklift truck can go, without compromising anything on safety, efficiency, comfort and technology.
The AC traction motor technology results in less maintenance and an excellent economy of service in terms of energy, efficiency, and battery life. The Mini Range is fitted with 24V batteries. The system consists of a check panel and an inverter for operating the motors. The different component parts communicate by means of the CAN-bus protocol.
Steering System, Power Steering and Side-Shift
A really compact and reliable rack and pinion steering system guarantee driving accuracy and low energy absorption, extending the truck’s autonomy. Already in use on many larger forklift trucks, Mariotti introduced this technical innovation on units with capacities of less than 1600 kg. All of their trucks are equipped with power steering and integrated side-shift as standard, which guarantees driving comfort and the utmost maneuverability and agility in tight spaces.
A distinguishing feature of all the models manufactured by Mariotti is their adjustable wheelbase. This function which improves the driving performance of the forklift is connected to the mast tilt position. While approaching the load, you set it shorter by tilting the mast forward for better maneuverability.
A clever LCD check panel constantly monitors the operating hours worked, the battery’s charge status and the operating mode. Because it is directly connected to the inverter via CAN-bus, the panel will warn of any possible problems and identify the specific failure.
Ergonomics, Comfort And Safety
Mariotti is used to optimise the space onboard every truck in order to create a cabin that is comfortable and safe for operators to use. Even the Mini range, despite the unique compactness, is designed with this in mind. It has a comfortable seat, with an adjustable backrest and driving position as standard. The adjustable steering column means that every operator can set it to the correct driving position. The location of the steering column, the directional switch, and the hydraulic levers allows the operator to use them easily and naturally. Moreover, the brakes are hydraulic and the lifting control is electronically operated.
