TCM models boast a new ATD engine
Japanese forklift manufacturer TCM has launched a new advanced turbo diesel engine to meet the latest emissions regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

Reducing particulate matter by 90% and using engine management to control the variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), the new Advanced Turbo Diesel (ADT) is now available on all models in the TCM GX Series.

Removing the need for a DPF reduces downtime and improves operating costs and CO2 emissions by up to 24%, while a typical eight-hour shift pattern also saves around five litres of fuel per truck each month.

Jason Jordan, national sales manager at TCM's largest UK dealer, Carrylift, says the new engine will prove popular among customers: "The new ATD engine builds on the reputation TCM has developed for rugged performance and we're delighted to see it available at 2.5 T capacity. Fuel consumption, vibration levels and engine output are all excellent and the 660 mm/s lift speed offers top-class performance."

The TCM GX Series featuring the new ZD-30 Advanced Turbo Diesel engine is available to order from 3.5 to 5.0 T immediately, with other models arriving later in the year.

TCM is part of the UniCarriers Group which was acquired by Mitsubishi in 2015.
