Drywall

The power and unmatched stability of Princeton’s PiggyBack® Forklift line allows you to handle the “big stuff” with complete confidence. Now, deliver drywall steel studs, and lumber or other difficult construction material with ease to precisely where they will be used at the delivery site, maximizing both customer service and delivery efficiency.

The Concept

The Princeton PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklift is a proven method for the delivery of drywall, steel studs, mud, and other related 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.

The Solution

There are six PiggyBack® models designed specifically for use in the delivery of drywall.

PB55+

The 5,000 lb. capacity PB55+ is the hands down favorite choice of the drywall industry. 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 drywall package makes handling wall board on a job site easier.

PB55+ 4-Way

The 5,000 lb. capacity PiggyBack® PB55+ 4-Way offers the most versatility in truck-mounted forklifts. It has the lift capacity and power of a PB55+, but adds four directional steering. With the flip-of-a-switch the PB55+ 4-Way converts into side-directional mode permitting the unit to be driven sideways in the direction of the load. driving the unit “sideways” in the direction of the load. Ideal for delivering extra long loads in those hard to negotiate, highly congested areas previously inaccessible at most construction job sites. Nothing can outmaneuver or outperform the versatile PiggyBack® PB55+ 4-Way.
