Doosan's new models
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.
