They are narrow and highly maneuverable, while also offering the utmost reliability and high load capacity: the new stand-on trucks from Linde Material Handling. Narrower than a Euro pallet, Linde T20 FP and Linde T25 FP pallet trucks (load ca-pacity of 2.0 and 2.5 tons respectively) and the Linde D10 FP double stacker (load capacity of 1.0 ton) impress customers with their robustness, ease of operation and wide variety of optional convenience and safety features.
Anyone whose job involves positioning dozens of pallets on cramped truck loading areas or moving them back and forth between staging areas day in, day out is well aware that every inch counts! The narrower and more maneuverable the vehicle, the better. The new pallet trucks Linde T20 FP and Linde T25 FP meet this requirement perfectly. At only 720 millimeters wide, the chassis plays a major role in enabling drivers to precisely position goods. Because the vehicles are narrower than the Euro pallets they transport, damage to the trucks’ sidewalls is prevented, which would otherwise repeatedly occur when maneuvering on the loading platform. The reduced chassis width is also a positive attribute when maneuvering quickly in the goods receipt and shipping areas or in narrow aisles.
The Linde D10 FP double stacker is the ideal choice when it comes to loading trucks in a particularly space-saving manner. The vehicle can manage loads of up to 1,000 kilograms on the forks and load arms – and alternatively 2,000 kilograms on the initial lift or 1,200 kilograms on the main lift.
Each of the three new models comes with a fixed stand-on platform. The driver steps in from the rear; two grab handles on the left and right and the low driver’s platform at a height of only 200 millimeters facilitate access. The vehicle’s operating environment can be adapted to the needs of the respective employee. The stand-on platform is 538 millimeters wide and can optionally be completely suspended from the chassis to provide the best possible cushioning against shocks caused by uneven ground so as to protect the driver from premature fatigue. The ergonomically shaped handlebars feature easy-to-operate control levers on either side so that all driving and lifting functions can be actuated using only one hand.
Designed for optimum visibility, the pallet trucks offer the driver an unobstructed view of the driving area and load, which helps to maintain a clear field of vision in hectic day-to-day warehouse environments.
Electromagnetic, electric and hydraulic systems ensure adaptive braking that is responsive to the weight of the load, among other variables. For safety reasons, the entire floor mat is designed as a dead man’s switch: If the operator leaves the truck, it stops immediately and remains in place even on sloping ramps.
The chassis consists of two massive steel aprons that reach just above the ground, protecting the driver and absorbing light bumps.
