Jungheinrich launches 5t Hydros and EFG series 4

Jungheinrich has launched five tonne versions of its hydrostatic vehicles, as well as the EFG series 4 electric lift trucks.

Hydrostatics
The DFG and TFG 540s – 550s hydrostatics are claimed to use around 33 per cent less fuel than the market average torque converters, and reduce emissions further than previous models.  They already comply with 3b EU emissions regulations.

They have large cabins with automotive styling and heating as well as an unobstructed, toughened glass roof for visibility. They have a variable load sensing displacement pump supplied by Bosch, and Volkswagen engines using “common-rail” technology instead of pump injection.

EFG Series 4
The new AC-powered electric lift trucks EFG S30 and the 430K (a compact version of the 3 tonne EFG truck) have driver assistance systems including curve control, drive control, lift control and parking control.  They come with a SnapFit sideloading battery that requires no lifting from the operator with only one wire connection. 

Jungheinrich reckons the Drive&LiftPlus feature on the new series 4 EFGs offers increased performance at a lower price than the current series.

In response to customer demand for outdoor applications, the new series 4s have been developed for outdoor use with larger windows mounted in smaller frames, and a mast 50 mm broader than previous models.

Jungheinrich supplies a charger module that fits all its trucks regardless of the required voltages.
