  • Princeton Delivery Systems Announces Cromer Material Handling as Forklift Dealer for Northern and Central California

    by Marshall Cromer, The Forklift Boss | Jan 23, 2018

    PiggyBack Truck & Trailer Mounted Forklifts Sales, Parts, and Service

    Cromer Material Handling now carries the Princeton PiggyBack forklift line at its Bay Area and Central California locations.

    With load capacities ranging from 3,600 to 8,000 pounds, Princeton offers the industry’s broadest range of three-wheel Hydrostatic Drive truck-mounted forklifts.

    Piggybacks are unique in many ways—they have "Double Reach" masts for one-sided vehicle unloading, "4-way" movement for transporting long loads through narrow job sites, and a patented Easy Hitch Hook mounting system.

    PiggyBacks can mount quickly & easy to the rear of a truck or trailer…making them the smart choice for many industrial job sites.

    Details on PiggyBack Forklifts

    Princeton forklifts look & function a bit differently than your typical Doosan or CAT. For one, they're 3-wheel as opposed to 4-wheel. This makes them easier to mount on the backs of some trucks & trailers, for easier transport to a job site.

    Let's look at two examples to demonstrate.

    PiggyBack PB45

    The PB45 has a 5,000lb capacity. With its center seating and wider mast rails, operators have great visibility. Thanks to a low center of gravity, it has excellent stability as well.

    The 5,500lb capacity PB55s are a favorite for carrying brick, blocks, and pavers. It's a high-horsepower truck too, helping it haul heavy loads even in rough terrain (like an unfinished construction site).

    New Year, New Forklifts—A Strong Start to 2018

    You're welcome to come try out a Princeton! They're tough forklifts. Made to help the construction and beverage industries, but they'll do just as well for outdoor transport or produce.

    From the entire Cromer family—have a safe and prosperous 2018.

    Until next month!
