Thanks to its initial lift, the ESC 316z is also able to cope effortlessly with uneven floors. All drive and lift functions are performed using the multifunction lever within easy reach.

The robust design also offers particular advantages: Frame and load section are designed for rated capacities up to 1600 kg.
