Introduced last year, Stärke’s XVI line of internal combustion counterbalance forklifts continues to impress dealers and end-users alike with premium features including a wide view mast design, enhanced ergonomics, exceptional maneuverability and unmatched stability.


Wide View Mast Design

To maximize productivity without sacrificing safety or risking product damage, the new XVI line of forklifts from Stärke provides industry-leading visibility in all four directions with an innovative clear view mast and an improved cab design. The difference between the XVI line and the competition is most noticeable in models equipped with a fully enclosed cab (optional), which offers protection from the elements without further obstructing operator visibility.


Enhanced Ergonomics

To combat the risks associated with repetitive strain injuries and operator fatigue, Stärke’s new XVIs include a series of ergonomic design elements to improve comfort levels and simplify operation. Following a product demonstration, two operators experienced with both Hyster and Yale forklifts commented on the spacious cabin and effortless operation provided by the XVI’s small steering wheel, cowl mounted controls, adjustable steering column and deluxe suspension seat.

Always In Control

Regardless of the application, all forklift operators want to be confident in their ability to control and maneuver a forklift in a safe and efficient manner. With the XVI Series, operators are quick to note the ease of operation and maneuverability of the unit. This is due, in part, to the tight turning radius and advanced controls of the XVI Series, which allows these forklifts to operate in the same amount of space as slightly smaller units without issue. Likewise, the XVI Series offers incredible load stability, even at full lift heights and uneven ground.
