Linde targets medium duty market with new reach trucks

,

Linde has launched four new reach truck models designed for light to medium-duty applications. They have an entry level of equipment designed to enable operators to work comfortably.

The R10B to R16B models in the 1.0 to 1.6-tonne load capacity range supplement the existing reach truck series as entry-level model.

“Around half of all reach trucks are used for work at lifting heights of up to eight meters. With the new entry-level models, Linde is offering a cost-effective alternative to the performance variant of the reach truck for applications that do not constantly demand a high level of handling performance”, said Alexander Schmidt, international head of product marketing for reach trucks and tow tractors.

“At the same time, we are continuing to differentiate our product range with the introduction of the four new models, and can offer our customers an even greater choice, so that they can find the right product for their needs at the best possible value. The entry-level models from Linde are also setting the benchmark from an ergonomic perspective, in particular with the decoupled workstation, the height-adjustable seat and the individually adjustable operating console.”

The B-range trucks have uncoupled workstations, operating consoles that can be adjusted longitudinally,  steering systems which enable the steering resistance and number of steering turns to be set, height-adjustable operator’s seats, load wheel brakes and  wide viewing windows through narrow-profile lift masts, which can lift heights of up to 7,700 millimetres.
