Forklifts upgraded

11 October 2021

JUNGHEINRICH HAS revamped its series 2 and 3 battery-powered counterbalanced trucks to improve hydraulic performance and safety.

Series 2 and 3 include twelve different truck models. Available as three- or four-wheel models, these forklift trucks can lift loads of 1,300 to 2,000 kg up to 7,000 mm, with a maximum speed of up to 17 km/h.

Through the now completed upgrade, Jungheinrich increased the hydraulic performance of the forklift trucks by up to 20%. This leads to a considerable increase of the maximum handling performance. In the future, the standard truck EFG 320 will be able to handle up to five tonnes more per hour. The new hydraulics also ensure considerably more efficiency and performance when working with attachments such as telescopic forks, rotating or clamp attachments. At the same time, the energy consumption per handled pallet was reduced by up to 10%.

In addition, Jungheinrich increased the operating safety of its counterbalance trucks through the upgrade. A new steering software permanently monitors the drive, work, hydraulics and steering functions. This results in more safety, fewer accidents and increased productivity in the versatile spectrum of operations of the trucks. In addition to the new software, this is also ensured by Jungheinrich’s in-house developed assistance systems and standard safety features such as automated parking brakes. Additional protection from collisions in critical warehouse areas is guaranteed by Jungheinrich zoneCONTROL.

The electric trucks of series 2 and 3 are equipped with state-of-the-art three-phase motors and Jungheinrich’s energy efficient PureEnergy technology concept. Both give the forklift trucks a particularly high degree of efficiency. 

Furthermore, they are available with lithium-ion technology.
