The SL-Series is much different compared to other side-loaders due to its ability to drive in four directions. This multi-directional steering is available with the cab on the right or on the left. This hydrostatic, all-wheel drive lift truck could benefit companies in numerous ways, one of which is to enable facilities to have narrower aisles. It also enables the capability to block or bilk stack by driving forward.
