Jungheinrich launches Series 5 I.C. engine powered counterbalance trucks
Published: 13 June, 2016
Jungheinrich is extending its robust internal combustion series with the Series 5, featuring lifting capacities of 4, 4.5 and 5 tonnes, and these universally applicable fork trucks have torque converters that deliver high throughput rates. These hydrodynamic stackers are particularly strong over medium and long outdoor travel routes, featuring a soft, gentle approach and efficiency at medium and high speeds.
Essential core structural elements, such as the mast, frame and steering axle, are manufactured in Germany. Thanks to the high-quality robust parts, wear-free wet disc brakes and easy access to the motor compartment, maintenance of the entire vehicle is quick and inexpensive.
The truck can be maintained without expert knowledge, special tools or vehicle diagnostics software. The vehicle’s electric system is splash-proof and its fuse box is mounted on the console wall, making it readily accessible at all times. All vehicles are fitted with an enclosed high-performance cooling system with combi-cooler, making it possible to operate the stacker even under high ambient temperatures.
“Our stackers are designed to consistently meet and exceed our UK customer requirements,” said Jan Lorenz, managing director of Jungheinrich UK.
“Apart from an attractively priced vehicle, our customers greatly value robustness and reliability, even under harsh operating conditions. At the same time the vehicle needs to be easy to operate and maintain without the need for complex electronics.”
