Bonfiglioli develops specific solutions for steering axles and transmissions, capable to grant high performance and accurate manoeuvrability. 
In particular Bonfiglioli has a strong expertize in the material handling industry where specific solutions for steering forklifts are available.

Forklift - Steering

Bonfiglioli idle steering systems for material handling vehicles are typically applied in the rear part of 3- and 4-wheel counterbalanced forklifts. They can be axles or steering units for twin wheels. Depending on the steering unit model, anti-vibration parts can be included and they serve as support for fixing brackets.

Bonfiglioli steering units are suitable for forklift with a lift capacity up to 3500 kg.

The steering is realized by means of hydraulics that guarantees a high steering angle, in order to minimize the steering radius of the vehicle and allow the truck to move easily inside narrow aisles.
