Linde Series 1202
KION North America has introduced the Linde Series 1202 hydrostat forklift to its portfolio.
"With its new flagship product, Linde is once again setting a benchmark in the industry," says Eike Wibrow, Linde's vice president strategy, marketing, and intralogistics systems. "Almost 1,000 forklift drivers and fleet managers rated the predecessor and provided important information for improvements for the new model. The result is an ergonomic truck with high productivity and low fuel consumption."
Available in diesel and LPG, the Linde Series 1202 has load capacities ranging from 4,500-7,000 lb. (2-3 T) and offers a hydrostatic drive system that powers the wheels with hydraulic fluid instead of a mechanical powertrain. This technology brings a better and more effective truck, including automatic acceleration and deceleration, preventing wear on the brakes and tyres while delivering smoother transitions with speed, Linde claims.
"This is an exciting moment for the whole industry and aims at allowing our customers an opportunity for a new level of connectivity while gaining even more efficiency than in the past," Wibrow adds.
Part of the IC truck line, the Linde Series 1202 is operator-centred with its straightforward use, focus on drivability as well as features that aim to increase driver protection and decrease fatigue. Supportive features include maximum residual capacity, a low centre of gravity, good weight distribution and overhead tilt cylinders. Further technological advancements include asset management monitoring as a standard feature. Hour meter reading, fault codes and GPS can be monitored from any computer or smart device that has access to the Internet and cloud.
This model is designed to perform well in multi-shift operations and in a multitude of indoor and outdoor applications.
