In 2019, founders Greg and Mark Fahey decided it was time to push BISON to the next level, kickstarting the development of a new product that would continue to lift the company towards the top of the mobile container handling industry.
A little over two years later, the brothers have debuted the newest addition to the C-Lift lineup, the X Series – an innovative handling system that transforms your forklift into a heavy container handling machine.
In a world where efficiency and safety are top of mind, innovative solutions are needed to make the job of logistics managers easier. When analysing market research, the BISON team highlighted an opening for a system that satisfied common pain points such as greater versatility, safety and autonomy while remaining affordable to all businesses.
Considering these factors, our engineers began the construction of a new C-lift which would integrate light forklifts, limit the requirement for hands-on activities and improve the self-sufficiency of container handling operations all around the world.
The X Series showcases an operation unlike anything that BISON has produced in the past. Mounted on the front forks of a fork truck, the hydraulic columns provide operators with the ability to handle containers weighing up to 40 tonne, a capacity that is generally limited to more expensive machinery like reach stackers and top loaders.
Additionally, the X Series has the ability to operate in environments that traditional, heavy-lift systems can’t. Loose and uneven surfaces can be the end of the road for systems like top loaders and straddle carriers, but the X Series and its intelligent automated load sensing, tilt sensing and synchronization, allows operators in restricted environments to lift and transport containers, on their own terms.
Given that the X series combines size, speed and workability in a package that remains affordable to all businesses, it provides operators in many different industries with a unique alternative to traditional lift methods.
“The unique way in which the X Series operates means that we can open up new possibilities to businesses that thought in-house container handling was never a viable option. It’s offering that kind of value to our customers which makes what we do worth it.” - Greg Fahey, CEO.
The X Series is primed and in production for the 2021 year, with our fantastic sales team are ready to answer all your queries surrounding our newest product.
