MrX 34194 49 Looking for more info: Sanderson SB45 forklift either
Looking for more info: Sanderson SB45 forklift
I snapped this machine about 2 weeks ago and have yet to be
able to find anything about either the company history or
most importantly, the Sanderson SB45 itself. Ive tried
searching online but have been met with only auction sites

So, can anyone help with either specifications on the
forktruck, or maybe some site which I havent seen yet?
Re: Looking for more info: Sanderson SB45 forklift
The Sanderson Forklift company used to be owned by a Mr Roy
Sanderson, in Croft, UK. Most (maybe all) of the SB series
were based on a Ford tractor engine, torque converter and a
4 speed transmission. We had a SB70 and a SB55 and I am
guessing they were introduced around 1978 or 1980. They were
a good machine, especially the bigger ones. The SB55 was
about 60hp and I think the SB70 was 86hp. I am guessing the
SB45 was only around 50hp, so it would have been weak on
power and performance. The company sold out to Aveling
Barford around 1989-90, and I think moved to Grantham, UK.

Where did you take the photo?
Re: Looking for more info: Sanderson SB45 forklift
The picture was taken at a local farm which has several fork
trucks, but all of the others bar this one are of the
telescopic type. I do know that Sanderson did make those
too, but have never seen any as JCB & Manitou seem to have
the market in their court.
