Macks Ã˜lbryggeri AS, the world's most northerly brewer, has upgraded the forklift fleet at its warehouse with Jungheinrich DFG 425-435s IC engine counterbalanced trucks. Capable of lifting loads weighing up to 3500kg,
Capable of lifting loads weighing up to 3500kg,Macks Ã˜lbryggeri's new forklifts are equipped with multi pallet handlers that enable several pallet loads to be handled simultaneously.
Winter temperatures plummet to below -40 degrees C in northern Norway and because the trucks spend a good deal of time outside unloading and loading trailers, Macks Ã˜lbryggeri needed forklifts that not only offer high throughput speeds but are also capable of working in snow and ice.
The Jungheinrich DFG 425-435s models feature hydrostatic drive which means they are particularly suited to highly intensive materials handling operations and applications involving a lot of shuttling operations - such as lorry loading and unloading in and around a busy warehouse or yard - making them ideal for Macks Ã˜lbryggeri's needs.
With an office in Tromso, Jungheinrich is also able to offer a high level of after-sales support, which means an engineer can be at Macks Ã˜lbryggeri's site - despite its Arctic Circle location - quickly.
