Mid price counterbalance from Jungheinrich

,

Jungheinrich has launched a new generation of mid-price engine powered counterbalance trucks, with hydronamic torque converter drives.

The trucks use either diesel or LPG motors provided by Kubota which the firm says will allows it to offer a lower price point to its customers without compromising on performance.

The new general purpose DFG/TFG 316-320 and DFG/TFG 425-435 model ranges handle payloads of up to 3.5 tonnes with maximum stacking height of 7.50 metres.

The proprietary Jungheinrich transmission shaft in the new torque converter features an integrated non-wear wet multi-disc brake. MarekScheithauer, head of product management of IC Powered counterbalanced trucks said: “Compared with standard drum brakes, wet multi-disc brakes mean almost no service costs.”

MarekScheithauer, said: ““These industrial engines, tried and tested around the world in heavy-duty construction machinery, already deliver high torque at low revs.”

These new trucks also feature innovations to the mast, chassis and steering axle.

The new model ranges feature an electric parking brake as standard, doing away with the previous handbrake lever in the cab. 

Jungheinrich is also preparing a range of new innovations for CeMat, including a new operators compartment with multiple configuration for the joystick and arm rest.
