Ambassador chooses RDS for demo fleet
Witham, United Kingdom

Ambassador Lift Trucks, the UK Komatsu forklift importer, has installed RDS Liftlog 100+ on-board weighing systems on the 2.5 T capacity Komatsu FG 25 HT demonstration forklifts used by Komatsu forklift dealers.
A hydraulic load sensor measures the increase in system pressure and the Liftlog 100+ displays the weight to the operator. There is also an alarm that informs the operator of overloading, helping prevent a potential tip-over.
The weighing systems were supplied by Maldon-based RDS South East.
