Leading global forklift and warehouse equipment manufacturer, Linde Material Handling, is launching a new 10 to 18 tonne diesel engine counterbalance truck series to service applications at the heavier end of the forklift truck market including construction sites, ports and rail, and heavy industries such as steel, aluminium, construction and aggregates.
Manufactured at Linde’s Heavy Truck Division* in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, the new H100-H180 series provides class-leading performance, with optimal speed and precision through a unique hydrostatic drive system, in the heavy industrial sector. 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.
The cutting edge operator’s compartment ensures precise load control and unrivalled operator comfort & safety, as well as clear, all round visibility. 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 centralized service bay to help reduce operating costs to the lowest levels in this class and maximise driver up-time.
Colin Flint, new head of marketing, at Linde’s heavy truck division said: “The cornerstone of Linde’s heavy truck strategy is to create real 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.”
* Linde Heavy Truck Division Ltd (LHTD) is part of the Linde Materials Handling Company and is the Group’s dedicated facility for all forklifts from 10000Kg to 46000Kg including sideloaders and the entire Linde Container Handling range of products.
