SUMMERVILLE, S.C.—Linde Material Handling will unveil its new five-to-eight-ton-capacity, low-emitting diesel and LPG truck series at the upcoming CeMat show in Hanover, Germany, May 27-31.
The range has been extended to include a lifting capacity of eight tons, and major service intervals have been extended from 500 to 1,000 hours, to help improve uptime and reduce lifetime costs, according to Linde.
The trucks are powered by a Deutz turbo-diesel engine with common rail direct injection and intercooling. Engine performance is rated at 87 kW at 2200 rpm, with maximum torque of 472 Nm achieved at 1600 rpm.
In addition, the triplex mast offers the operator an 18% larger field of vision, according to the company. For greater operating comfort, the two control levers for lift/lower, tilt and auxiliary hydraulics have been integrated into the armrest.
The lift and tilt functions are powered by an axial piston variable pump instead of the previous fixed-displacement pump. This increases the volume of pumped oil, which helps improve the mast's lifting speeds, which have increased by up to 30%. The oil volume for additional hydraulics has also been increased. The pump adjusts the pumped oil volume to suit the required output, maintaining a low noise level and reducing fuel consumption, Linde says.
