Vintage excellence, season after season

Linde forklifts pair well with Australian wineries

Frequently asked questions

From the vineyard to the warehouse, understanding your needs at each stage of the vintage season is essential to optimising your winery operation. Choosing the most suitable forklift and knowing how to adapt its use to various environmental and surface conditions is key to maintain efficiency and productivity.

To assist in your search for a new forklift, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new or used forklift, or looking to explore our rental opportunities, Linde’s got you covered.

Yes, Linde provides a range of electric battery-powered forklifts that will suit your needs, but it comes down to your site’s conditions and requirements. To ensure you get the best value for your money, Linde recommends conducting a site survey. This approach ensures you’re matched with equipment that meets your winery’s requirements. Linde’s electric forklift range is known for its efficiency, low to zero emissions, and reduced noise levels, making them particularly suitable for indoor use, as well as outdoors.

Every winery is different, and there is no one size fits all solution. That’s why we recommend one of our Linde experts conduct a site survey at your winery to assess your specific conditions and requirements. Based on this evaluation, we’ll be able to recommend a forklift model that would suit your application. We’ll also be able to advise you on what tipping attachment may be best suited with your Linde forklift.

Ensuring the safety of your forklift operators and surrounding personnel is crucial, which is why Linde offers a range of safety features. Our most popular safety features include:

  • Reverse beeper: alerts others when the forklift is backing up.
  • BlueSpot warning light: projects a bright blue light onto the floor to signal an approaching forklift.
  • Halo light system: encircles the forklift with a visible light on the ground to mark a safe perimeter around the forklift.
  • Forklift seatbelt interlock: ensures the forklift cannot be operated unless the seatbelt is fastened.

Linde offers various flexible finance options for wineries looking to acquire forklifts, including short-term rentals and our rent-to-buy solution.

Short-term rental:
Linde’s STR solution is ideal for wineries with variable demands or those looking for a temporary solution with a long-term commitment. Whether you need a single machine or a whole fleet, for a couple of hours or as long as five years, Linde's short-term forklift rental fleet is available immediately with no lock-in contract requirements. This is particularly useful for seasonal peaks, such as vintage season.

Linde’s RTB solution offers the flexibility of trying out a truck through rental before making a purchase. It provides an excellent way of assessing whether this forklift meets your requirements, and helps in budgeting for the investment of important equipment.
