Wilmat’s Heavy Duty Stacking Trucks Revolutionize Rehau’s Reel Handling Process

September 11 2023

REHAU PVCu casement windows offer a wide choice of styles and colours for a variety of applications in both the new build and refurbishment markets.

Ian Cadmore contacted Wilmat when he had a need for another Wilmat Reel Handler to handle heavy rolls. Ian said, “The truck is used to transport protective tape ‘logs’ from their storage location to our cutting machine. The truck benefits us by enabling safe, easily & quick movement of these ‘logs’. No manual handling eliminates the chance of personal injury. We already have 3 spool trucks manufactured by Wilmat which have proved to be reliable & durable.”

The new truck is a Wilmat Heavy Duty Stacking Truck fitted with a 1200mm long Boom to handle a reel weighing 250kg at a load center of 665mm and with a core diameter of 75mm. Raised height to center line of boom is 2950mm. The unit has a 600mm inside straddle width to accommodate the reel diameter. Truck is complete with 12v, 90 a/h battery and built-in charger suitable for charging from any standard 13-amp outlet.

Ian continued, “Dealing with Wilmat was very easy. Everyone has been very pleasant & helpful. The back & forth communication to ensure that the lifter as exactly what we required was excellent.”

We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Rehau helping them to solve their manual handling problems.
