Doosan has launched a new, range of electric reach trucks. The BR14JW 9-Series combines faster operating speeds with advanced ergonomics and greater driver comfort. As the latest additions to Doosan's range of warehouse trucks, the new 9-Series electric reach trucks are available in six moving-mast models with capacities between 1,400 to 2,500 kg, and in three chassis types: Heavy, Narrow or Standard. All models are equipped with Doosan's Guardian Stability System and Smart Sensor control, reducing mast oscillation by 40%, for greater stability and safer load handling when operating at heights of up to 13m. Doosan says businesses across a broad spectrum of industries - from manufacturing, wholesale distribution and food and beverage to engineering, building supplies and transport and warehousing - will benefit from the improved efficiency, speed and performance of the new electric reach trucks. With warehouse space at a premium, maximising available storage space using a narrow-aisle, high-bay configuration combined with Doosan's latest top-performing reach trucks can transform the capacity and productivity of a warehouse. Making the most of the narrowest aisle widths, the BR14J-9 and BR16J-9 models are 12% narrower than the previous models, which, together with a shorter chassis, offer a much tighter turning radius - allowing the operator to manoeuvre with confidence in aisles under 3m wide. The BR20JW-9 and BR25JW-9 heavy models have the capacity to carry loads up to 2 T and 2.5 T, respectively, and the standard BR14JW-9 and BR16JW-9 reach trucks offer all-round value and performance for standard applications. Ryan Lenihan, commercial director at Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK, says: "Productivity within the warehouse is a highly important focus for businesses in manufacturing and retail. Labour availability is under pressure across the UK and customer expectation for service and delivery is unrelenting, so companies need higher-performance materials handling equipment to support their plans for productivity gains. "The scale and scope of Doosan as a large global engineering business enables us to make significant, on-going investment into our warehouse product range - bringing design enhancements, new battery and charging technology upgrades, advanced safety features, and a whole range of performance-boosting innovations." Lenihan notes that the new models augment Doosan's extensive range of IC engine and electric counterbalance trucks.
To help prevent damage to pallets and goods, Meijer Handling Solutions has developed a sensor that detects how level the load is.
