Jungheinrich's refreshed counterbalance trucks roll off the line
Jungheinrich has relaunched its series 2 and 3 counterbalance trucks with improved hydraulics, safety and software. Series 2 and 3 include 12 different truck models. Available as three- or four-wheel models, these forklift trucks can lift loads of 1,300 to 2,000 kg up to 7,000 mm. With a maximum speed of up to 17 km/h, they ensure efficient operations in and outside warehouses. Jungheinrich claims the upgrade has increased the hydraulic performance of the forklifts by up to 20%, delivering a considerable increase to the maximum handling performance. At the same time, the energy consumption per handled pallet was reduced by up to 10%. "With these new improvements, the forklift trucks of series 2 and 3 do an even better job at meeting the needs of our customers for efficient and sustainable intralogistics. The acceptance is being reflected in the numerous orders received," says Thomas Angstenberger, product manager for counterbalance trucks at Jungheinrich. In addition, Jungheinrich has increased the operating safety of its counterbalance trucks through the upgrade. A new steering software permanently monitors the drive, work, hydraulics and steering functions. This results in improved safety, fewer accidents and increased productivity. In addition to the new software, this is also ensured by Jungheinrich's in-house developed assistance systems and standard safety features such as automated parking brakes. Additional protection from collisions in critical warehouse areas is guaranteed by Jungheinrich's zoneCONTROL. The electric trucks of series 2 and 3 are equipped with state-of-the-art three-phase motors and Jungheinrich's energy-efficient PureEnergy technology concept. Both give the trucks a particularly high degree of efficiency. Furthermore, they are available with progressive lithium-ion technology. The batteries allow for quick and convenient intermediate charging and are therefore ideally suited for multi-shift operations. A high degree of comfort rounds out the complete package offered by the three- and four-wheel trucks. Both the height and tilt of the steering column as well as the lever and axis assignment of the controls can be individually adjusted to offer an ergonomic work station. Thanks to the compact framework, drivers have an ample range of vision and can constantly keep an eye on their load.
