Brick, Block & Pavers
The Princeton PiggyBack® Delivery System is a proven method for delivering brick, block, & pavers that has revolutionized customer service and delivery efficiency.
The Princeton PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklift is a proven method for delivery of brick, block, pavers, and other concrete products. Historically, materials were delivered to the edge of a site by a flat bed truck or truck-mounted crane. The customer then had to move the materials again to wherever the work was being done. The PiggyBack® truck-mounted forklift enables your driver to spot-deliver materials precisely where your customer wants them, faster and easier, on virtually any work site with unmatched stability.
A PiggyBack® can increase efficiency, not only by eliminating costly double-handling, but also by reducing delivery related product damage. It also is invaluable for pickups or for correcting misplacement of products on the job site.
PiggyBacks are available in many, different models with a wide range of available lift heights...capacities up to 8,000 lb... and other, special features that allow it to be configured to your specific delivery requirements. All PiggyBacks mount in less than a minute behind virtually any truck or trailer for easy transport to and from the job site.
If you currently use a tow-behind or trailered forklifts, you already recognize the benefits of having a portable unloading unit with your delivery vehicle. The Princeton PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklift provides all these benefits in a highly efficient package that eliminates the complications of towed vehicles.
There are four, distinct PiggyBack® models designed specifically for use in the delivery of brick and block. All these models can be equipped with brick or block forks for a variety of product applications.
The 5,500 lb capacity PB55 is the hands down favorite choice of the brick, block, and paver industries. It's rugged design, center seating make it ideal for most construction site delivery applications. The PB55 offers high horsepower, excellent ground clearance and Princeton’s exclusive Trac-Loc traction control system to tackle the roughest job sites. An optional brick & block package makes handling cubed products easier on a job site.
The 5,500 lb. capacity PB55X is the first unit in the industry equipped with a standard "Double Reach" feature. This unique feature, which adds an extending scissors reach system to the standard moving mast, doubles the length of the reach of the PB55X across the bed. With the PB55X, your driver now can unload an entire truck or trailer from one side, even from positions where tanks or tandems are located.
All Princeton units exceed ANSI stability standards for rough terrain forklifts.
