Forklift manufacturer TCM has introduced a ‘new advanced turbo diesel engine’, which meets latest emission regulations, without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
Because it does not require a DPF – the forklift has reduced downtime, its operating costs have improved and CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 24 per cent.
The new engine reduces particulate matter by 90 per cent and uses engine management to control the variable geometry turbocharger.
“The new ATD engine builds on the reputation TCM has developed for rugged performance and we’re delighted to see it available at 2.5 tonnes capacity,” said Jason Jordan, national sales manager at TCM’s largest UK dealer, Carrylift.
“Fuel consumption, vibration levels and engine output are all excellent and the 660mm per second lift speed offers top class performance.”
