Liftking Manufacturing, North America’s leading rough
terrain forklift, special mission vehicle and material
handling manufacturer, has introduced a new Electric
Forklift and a new Multi-loader.
LK135EL electric forklift has been engineered from the
ground up to provide high capacity in a small footprint.
This tough, compact model has a capacity of 13,500 lbs.
in the same amount of space as a typical 12,000 lb.
Features of the LK135EL include: excellent
maneuverability, Dual AC drive motors with high tractive
force, full electronic and speed steering control,
hydraulic over electric function controls, high capacity
80V battery and easy access maintenance points to keep
you up and running.
The LK135EL can be operated
inside a standard ISO container making loading/unloading
smooth and efficient. It can stack rolls of paper up to
3 high while many others max out at 2. Various
attachments and options make this model ideal for the
paper, port, automotive, lumber, steel and food and
beverage industry applications.
Liftking ML series of 4-way multi-loaders boasts
capacities ranging from 6,000 lbs. to 22,000 lbs. and
lifts from 12 – 24 feet. Each unit has all-wheel drive,
all-wheel steer and all-wheel brakes. Other features
include: a hydrostatic drive system, a torsion resistant
frame and ergonomically designed operator’s compartment.
Use the ML series equipment as an aisle truck,
traditional forklift and sideloader. Ideal for handling
long or normal loads that have to move from
inside/outside, on and off racks and narrow aisles and
doorways. Options include light packages, spreader
carriages up to 30 inches for outer forks and guide
rollers for specialty applications.

November 2nd, 2016
Liftking Manufacturing Corp has acquired all of the
intellectual property and product assets of failed
manufacturer Omega Lift, headquartered in Bolton,
Ontario, Canada. The intellectual property purchased
include Omega Lift's patents and patents pending as well
as all of the associated designs for Omega Lift
all-terrain forklifts, ARM telehandlers and
multiloaders. "As a continuation of Liftking's
global support network in the rough-terrain forklift
field, we are pleased to announce that we have purchased
all of the intellectual property of the Omega line of
materials handling equipment so we can assist all
customers and dealers with all parts, service and sales
support for all units out in the field," says Mark
Aldrovandi, director of sales at Liftking. The
associated intellectual property acquired will further
Liftking Manufacturing’s existing portfolio of
construction and rough-terrain materials handling
solutions to provide their customers with greater
long-term productivity benefits. Liftking is not
revealing what it paid for the assets of the bankrupt
manufacturer that was liquidated in September, owing
more than CAD10 million. It is not yet clear when
the Omega models will return to production. Liftking
general manager Jeff Cockerton tells Forkliftaction News

customers with parts and service. "Timing will depend on
how quickly we can work through the information we have
purchased," he says. Liftking will also contact
Omega dealers once it has reviewed the assets it has
purchased and works out "how we can help them", he adds.
