Linde has extended its industrial truck family with the addition of the Series 1204 IC engine-powered truck, available in diesel and LPG and capable of moving heavier loads from 3.5 to 5 T.
The 1204 is the product of extensive research and discussions with different industries, says John Pizarro, director of counterbalance products and energy. "Linde Material Handling has used this to drive innovative solutions that combine rapid handling of the heaviest loads with the flexibility to work in any application."
The Linde Series 1204 boasts robust design, a hydrostatic drive and a rugged industrial engine suited to the harshest environments, including recycling companies and construction material yards.
The new model boasts 1,000-hour maintenance intervals and maintenance-free features that ensure increased output and low cost of ownership. In addition, the Linde Engine Protection System (LEPS) monitors the engine to safeguard peak performance and alerts the driver of necessary planned maintenance while protecting against damage and unplanned downtime.
The design of the Linde Series 1204 focuses on keeping trucks in operation by effectively using power with a hydrostatic drive, ensuring an exact power transmission and eliminating wasteful energy use.
"The Linde hydrostatic drive unit is at the heart of our high-performance forklifts," Pizarro adds. "Its design links the engine to a sophisticated operating concept that puts the operator in complete control. The simplified pedal arrangement, automatic engine control, and electronic hydraulic levers allow a driver to focus the most attention on safe load-handling."
