Linde's new mast improves visibility

Linde Material Handling has unveiled a new heavy-duty mast which is being to fitted to its R14 HD to R25 reach trucks for payloads of 1.4 to 2.5 T. 

Linde claims the new mast offers operators a better view of the load and the surroundings as well as greater residual load capacities, enabling them to move pallets quickly and safely at lift heights of up to 15 m.  

The mast was added to help with the move to higher racking systems which places increasing demands on reach trucks.

The mast is much wider than previous models, and also dispenses with the cross struts previously required. This results in significantly larger viewing windows between the mast sections, which significantly improves the view of the forks. Depending on the type and design, the driver’s field of vision is extended by up to 27%, the company claims. 

With a maximum lift height of up to 15 m, the new mast reaches 2 m higher than the masts previously installed. It also has a higher residual load capacity, so that the vehicles can handle significantly more load weight than before when the mast is fully extended.
