UniCarriers unveils new trucks

,

UniCarriers is unveiling ten new TX counterbalance trucks as it revises its family of three and four wheeled forklifts. The trucks have maximum lift capacities of 1.25 to 2 tonnes.

The revised product family comprises seven models with three wheels (TX3) and three models with four wheels (TX4). The TX4 is now available in two chassis lengths and TX3 in three to fit a wide range of applications. All models are designed for lifting heights of up to 7,000mm and can reach a maximum speed of 16km/h (TX3) respectively 17km/h (TX4).

Innovations include electric steering with a steer-by-wire-system, and an automatic parking brake. The noise volume when handling loads has fallen by 8.2 dB to 63.3 dB compared to the former model.

The design of the mast and overhead guard with slim pillars and bars corresponds to the UniCarriers ProVision Concept and highly optimises the visibility. The instrument panel has been reduced as much as possible to increase visibility of the fork tips. Parts of the operating panel have been made transparent so the operator can gain view of load corners at the fork’s heel. At the same time, the seat, pedals and slim steering column have been designed to give even the tallest driver, plenty of legroom.
