Doosan expands economy forklift range

Korean forklift manufacturer Doosan has added six new IC engine models to its GX economy range including 1.5, 1.8 and 2.0 capacity LPG and diesel trucks.

Doosan markets two ranges of trucks under a single brand, the higher specification Pro-5 Series and the entry-level GX Range.

The company says this dual range approach has contributed to its best ever year in the UK and a growing market share across the globe.

The latest models take the total number of trucks in the GX range to ten.

Doosan UK’s general manager Tim Waples said: “In the midst of an economic downturn, we know that businesses are keen to keep costs down as they invest to grow and survive. As such, the GX Series is very popular with users that perhaps don’t have as intensive an operation as some of our Pro-5 fleet customers, but still need reliability and performance from a proven machine. We feel that extending the range now makes perfect sense.”

Doosan  recently acquired ATL, the German warehouse equipment specialist, and is planning its first major steps into the warehouse market.
