Ambassador Lift Trucks Ltd, the Witham-based authorised UK importer for Komatsu forklifts, have chosen to install the RDS Liftlog 100+ on-board weighing system on their demonstration 2.5t capacity Komatsu FG 25 HT forklifts. The demonstration forklifts are used across the county by Komatsu forklift dealers and the first forklift with weighing system has already been sold.
The Liftlog 100+ provides a time efficient means of check weighing alongside a load-totalising feature and overload monitoring functions. This makes it ideal for use where multiple pallets of a single product are to be check-weighed or where weight limits e.g. storage racks are to be adhered to, negating the need to travel to a floor-mounted platform scale.
A hydraulic load sensor measures the increase in system pressure and the Liftlog 100+ displays the weight to the operator. Also included is an overload alarm that informs the operator of load status. This helps the driver to avoid potential tip-over, increasing the safety of the forklift and surrounding warehouse – a topic very close to Ambassador’s heart.
Supplied by Maldon-based RDS South East, the Liftlog 100+ has helped Ambassador Lift Trucks see an increased interest in weighing applications on forklifts. Director, Trevor De’Ath, chose to demonstrate forklift weighing on his demo fleet as it would, “provide a new feature of forklift use and generate further awareness of the wider product offering from Komatsu.” He continues to say, “furthermore, the high level of support and service offered by RDS South East has given us increased confidence in the benefits that weighing systems can bring to our customers, helping both them and us achieve a significant reduction in total operational costs and facilitating superior work performance.”
