Small electric stackers, pallet trucks and order pickersIf you’re just starting out in material handling or running smaller, low-intensity operations, we believe you should have the same access to quality equipment at a competitive price. At TCM, we’ve got a cost-effective solution to cover all your base requirements without compromising on quality or design.

Introducing the TCM Lite Range

TCM Lite range

Covering your needs without compromise

Boasting the same quality and ergonomic design as our core range, the TCM Lite Range ensures your operations run efficiently at significantly lower costs - without compromising on quality. The range consists of off-the-shelf products that are easily accessible, meaning they integrate effortlessly into your operations with minimal downtime. 

As well as providing a consistent standard of product quality, we also offer a comparable level of support and warranty as with our core range to ensure you are fully covered.

Back to basics

Compared to our core range with extensive specification and high tech, our Lite Range adopts a no-frills approach for intuitive machinery that is perfect for light and low intensity operations.

For more demanding and intense applications where you need machinery to operate at higher speeds and with greater capacities, head over to our core range of products to find the best fit for your business.

Simple yet sustainable

Using simple components and stripping away all additional extras, the Lite Range provides you with minimalist equipment to get the job done while reducing waste and maintenance needs for a leaner, greener fleet.

The efficiency doesn’t stop there. With all products in the Lite Range powered by lithium-ion batteries, they can be plugged in wherever you want for optimal convenience. What’s more, they can be recharged at a faster rate than other commercial battery types, use opportunity charging across multiple shifts and have a longer overall battery life. Although more expensive upfront, lithium-ion is the most economical battery type, using 30% less energy that contributes towards reducing your total cost of ownership (TCO) and a more sustainable fleet.

Operator ease and comfort

With no added gadgets or high tech in the core product design, the machinery in this range is highly intuitive to fit seamlessly into your operations: from delivery to application. As a result, they require minimal operator training which helps to reduce downtime towards more efficient operations.  

Designed with the same innovation and ergonomics as our standard range, you can be sure you’re getting the same comfort to protect operator health and maximise efficiency.
