Linde Material Handling has launched a new 10 to 18 tonne diesel engine counterbalance truck series to service applications at the heavier end of the market such as construction sites, ports and rail, and heavy industries such as steel, aluminium and aggregates.
Manufactured at Linde's Heavy Truck Division in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, the H100-H180 series utilises a hydrostatic drive system. The series consists of ten models with load centres of 600 or 1200mm designed to suit a wide range of heavy industrial applications from container and break bulk handling to transportation of steel girders across construction sites and moving automotive parts around a production site.
Using the Cummins 142kW diesel engine, the trucks also feature Linde Load Control hydraulic control with engine speed up and Sideshift fork positioner.
The operator's compartment is designed with precise load control, operator comfort & safety and clear visibility in mind.
The side tilting cab enables fast and simple access to the engine and hydrostatic drive system for servicing.More frequently used service components such as engine oil, fuel and air filters, washer fluid container, batteries, fuses and CANbus plugs are accessible via a centralised service bay to help reduce operating costs and maximise driver up-time.
Colin Flint, head of marketing, at Linde's heavy truck division says: "The cornerstone of Linde's heavy truck strategy is to create value for customers through three principal areas - technology and innovation; manufacturing excellence and customer focus.
This latest heavy truck series underlines our commitment to continued investment in new product development to deliver value and increased efficiency for our customers." The Heavy Truck Division is a dedicated facility for forklifts from 10,000kg to 46,000kg including sideloaders and the Linde Container Handling range of products.
