New end rider series Cleveland, OH, United States Yale Materials Handling Corporation has launched a new line of warehouse trucks - the MPR080VG and MPR100VG enclosed end rider series. Engineered for multi-shift applications, the trucks are designed for busy warehouse cross-docking, shipping and receiving applications. The enclosed end riders offer 8,000 lb. (3,629 kg) and 10,000 lb. (4,536 kg) lifting capacities. According to Yale, the 10,000 lb. capacity MPR100VG model provides the highest lifting capacity compared to competitive enclosed end riders, and, when configured with a 160 in. (4 m) fork length, can transport up to four single or eight double-stacked pallets. Jungheinrich revamps counterbalance range Milton Keynes, United Kingdom Jungheinrich UK has launched its hydrostatically driven 3s, 4s, and 5s series of engine-powered counterbalance forklifts. As part of the re-engineering process, the trucks feature a new hydraulic pump that delivers "exactly the right amount of oil required" for the trucks' operational hydraulics. This translates to an increase of up to 20% in the efficiency of the lift and hydraulic functions. The new engine design also means that the trucks not only meet the requirements of the latest European emissions directive, but offer "significantly improved energy efficiency that results in a reduction in fuel consumption of around 8%". New pallet truck unveiled Hamburg, Germany Jungheinrich has introduced the ERE C20 electric pedestrian pallet truck. The stacker is a combination of a stand-on forklift and low lift truck, and can carry payloads up to 2T. It was developed by the Jungheinrich plant in Landsberg and is based on the ERE 120 pallet truck and the EJE C20 low lift truck. The ERE C20 is fitted with an additional mast lift, which has a lifting capacity of 700 kg (1,543 lb.). Contained in the battery compartment, the mast can be used to raise pallets up to a height of 752 mm (30 in.) "This provides the operator with additional options for order picking and light stacking operations," says product manager Michael Hohmann. Toyota broadens Tonero offer Mjölby, Sweden Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) has expanded its offering of Tonero counterbalance trucks with a new diesel engine line-up. "Diesel engine forklifts are the core of our customers' business," says Craig Walby, TMHE director, product management. "This is why we have developed a brand new, comprehensive, cost-effective diesel engine line-up that boasts lower fuel consumption." TMHE says its new diesel engine complies with Stage 3B exhaust emission regulations and claims it exceeds the requirements without the need for a diesel particulate filter. "The Toyota engine offer on the Tonero counterbalance trucks has been improved for lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Our customers can choose the engine solution that best fits their needs," Walby says.
