Three of the latest model Komatsu battery electric counterbalance forklifts, the FB25-12, have arrived in Australia and will be delivered as part of a seven-machine replacement fleet deal to a meat works in regional Victoria. Jack Socratous, Komatsu national business development manager tells Forkliftaction.com News that the forklifts are fitted standard with Komtrax, Komatsu's proprietary machine operation and monitoring system. "It provides real-time machine management technology designed specifically to identify trouble and alert our customers to take action (to prevent) damage to their assets. "The operator equipment levels have also improved with the dash display in colour, providing vivid and clear system details to the operator." Additional standard safety features include speed limiting and over-speed alarm. He says the battery replacement method has also been redesigned, with the battery removed from the rear, not the sides like many other machines. The new model is also more efficient, with a 20% reduction in power consumption. "It's a serious contender for any busy operation wanting to move away from LPG or diesel fuels," says Socratous.
