Designed for handling heavy, palletized loads, the THIEMAN ST-40 continues to be the industry choice among the heavy-duty, large platform Stowaways.

With maintenance being a major concern among fleets today, Thieman has incorporated self-lubricating Teflon bearings at all pivot points. This virtually eliminates the need for maintenance.

Along with a large platform and self-lubricating bearings, is the industry’s strongest lift frame, which makes the THIEMAN ST-40 the most efficient, reliable, and durable Stowaway in its class.
