Linde E60-E80 range
Linde Material Handling expands electric truck range
Published: 02 July, 2014
Linde Material Handling (MH) has added heavyweight trucks to its electric truck range so customers can carry load capacities of between six to eight tonnes.
The new E60-80 Linde range has powerful encapsulated drive units with two 11KW three-phase AC traction motors integrated into the front axle, to allow them to carry increased load capacity. According to Linde, they are extremely easy to operate with a dual-motor front-wheel drive, and different drive modes to provide performance and energy efficiency.
Allison Tucker, counterbalance product manager of Linde MH said: “For many operating companies - such as those in the sensitive food industry - electrically powered trucks have become the solution of choice when investing in intralogistics, thanks to their lack of emissions and quiet operation.
“At the same time, this segment is also seeing the trend for higher load capacity classes, with a view to handling larger volumes of goods per cycle and increasing productivity. Linde MH is meeting this growing demand head-on with its extensive new range of electric forklift trucks.”
