Manitou M 40 RT
Manitou has updated its M 40 vertical-mast rough-terrain forklift with a Tier-4 Final diesel engine, a sleek new body and a host of improvements that increase visibility, comfort, performance and economy.
Built to operate with bulk loads on uneven ground, the M 40 has a maximum lifting capacity of 8,179 lb. (3,709 kg) and a maximum lifting height of 19.5 ft. (5.97 m). It is available in two-wheel and four-wheel drive, and with hydrostatic or torque converter transmission.
The M 40's compact design enables excellent manoeuvrability. For two-wheel-drive units, buyers can choose either a torque converter or hydrostatic transmission. A hydrostatic transmission for 4WD models is planned for introduction in mid-2015.
Jungheinrich expands order picker range
Jungheinrich will launch new order picker modes over the coming months, starting with the ECE 225 HP (hydraulic lifting platform) and the ECE 225 HP-LJ (hydraulic lifting platform with control unit) variations.
All variations are based on the ECE 225 model with completely overhauled drive and control technology. The models feature substantially enhanced acceleration and driving performance.
The standard version of the truck also has a patented new, cushioned stand-on platform which can be individually set to the driver's weight.
Toyota adds three-wheel electric
Toyota three-wheel electric
Toyota Industrial Equipment launched its new three-wheel electric forklift to dealers in Atlanta last month. The new forklifts include 3,000-4,000 lb. (1,363-1,818 kg) capacity models with battery compartments ranging from 17.7 to 25.1 in. (0.45-0.63 m), and more than 30 improvements to boost performance, efficiency, stability and operator comfort.
Toyota's new forklift boasts improved run times and increased travel and lift speeds. The new model comes equipped with wet disc brakes to increase overall uptime and dependability, and features a new turn speed control system to increase the forklift's lateral stability by dramatically slowing it down when an operator attempts to turn at high speeds.
Ergonomic improvements include a smaller steering wheel and foot parking brake to enhance operability, a full suspension seat adjustable for various weights for operator comfort, and a popular optional rear assist grip with horn to make reverse travel more comfortable, improve peripheral vision and keep the operator's hands protected within the compartment.
