Tilbrook, Milton Keynes, UK: Jungheinrich has launched in new premium brand IC engine forklift range in the UK.
Innovations include the counterweight on the new trucks as an integral part of the load-bearing chassis and the steering axle integrated with the counterweight. This means that the truck’s centre of gravity is low which ensures outstanding stability without the need for additional electronic stability systems.
The new models’ drive shaft features integrated maintenance-free wet disc brakes to reduce service costs. The brakes’ encapsulated design means harsh external conditions do not diminish brake performance.
The new model ranges feature an electric parking brake as standard. The operator simply presses a button to activate the brake, while a new lifting mast design ensures improved view of the payload, forks and general working area. In fact, the visibility in all directions is class leading – which enhances all round safety throughout the shift. The new Jungheinrich Benchmast gives an improved field of vision by up to 85% at the tip of the forks.
Jonathan Morris, sales director, Jungheinrich UK, says: “We are confident that the market will respond enthusiastically to the new trucks. They offer the same exceptional German engineering that users have come to expect from the Jungheinrich brand and a wide range of added value features. The trucks’ build quality and design features make this range an extremely cost-efficient product that offers the user outstanding value for money – which is all summed up in our marketing campaign for the new truck called ‘Trust Your Machine’.”
