UniCarriers launches heavy duty truck

17 August 2021

THE MXL heavy duty electric counterbalance truck, the first vehicle of its kind in the Unicarriers range, is built for the challenges of moving heavy loads in a modern freight environment. 

It offers its users the chance to go fully emission-free, and it’s every bit as tough, as fast and as powerful as any truck with a combustion engine. It is said to have unique ergonomics and comes with a lower total cost of operation than IC solutions.

With near-silent hydraulic pumps, the MXL can move heavy loads all day without the noise pollution of traditional powertrains. The loudest sound the driver will hear is the ventilation fan. And that’s not just a benefit for the driver, but for everyone else in the workplace, too. With improved cabin visibility, fully customisable controls and better handling indoors and outside, the MXL is a performence-oriented tool for the ambitious forklift operator.

Electric vehicles are only as good as the battery that powers them, and here as well, the MXL offers best-in-class performance. A full charge lasts longer than a single shift, and the batteries can be charged during breaks or easily swapped out for a fully charged spare. So whether the facility runs single, double or triple shifts, whether the whole fleet is electric or the MXL runs alongside other drive systems, the energy source places no limitations on your workflow. For even better energy efficiency the MXL is available with high-performance Li-ION batteries to meet even the most challenging business demands.

The motor and drive system have been engineered to impress. Automatic acceleration boost and extra torque when needed mean that electric trucks no longer need to compromise on performance, while an electric differential lock maintains perfect handling, even on slippery surfaces.

With lower maintenance costs and savings on energy consumption, a fleet of MXL vehicles offers a lower Total Cost of Operation than a comparable IC fleet.
