The Jungheinrich 6T capacity engine counterbalance truck
Jungheinrich has commenced production of a new range of 6-9 T capacity engine counterbalance trucks.

The diesel- and LPG-powered forklifts - designated the DFG/TFG Range 6 - will be built at the group’s factory at Moosburg, Germany ( News #593). The forklifts were previously manufactured by Danish medium and heavy forklift manufacturer DanTruck A/S.

Separately, the German forklift maker has launched its first-ever app this month.

The application consists of a game, which simulates the Jungheinrich warehouse navigation system.

"This innovation allows the user to experience the advantages of warehouse navigation on his or her iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch first-hand," explains Sebastian Riedmaier, head of warehousing. "You become the forklift driver as you attempt to outperform our warehouse navigation system in terms of your manual efficiency and speed."

The new app offers a racing as well as a training mode, and is available for free at the App Store.
