Hyundai expands Dash range GEEL, Belgium Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe NV has expanded its range of "Dash 7" forklifts. The four "D-7" diesel forklifts with load capacities of 2 tonnes to 3.3 tonnes (4,409.2lbs to 7275.3lbs) and six "L-7" LPG forklifts with load capacities of 1.5 tonnes to 3 tonnes (3,306lbs to 6,613.9lbs) are available through Hyundai's global distribution network this month. All the forklifts replace older models except for the 33D-7 and 20LA-7 forklifts. The 33D-7 has a 3.3 tonne (4,409.2lbs) load capacity, new to Hyundai forklifts. The 20LA07 is a 20 tonne (44,092.5lb) compact LPG forklift. The forklifts are built at the plant in Ulsan, South Korea. Manitou launches Privilege range ANCENIS, France Manitou BF has introduced the MT Privilege range of telehandlers with lift heights from 14 to 18 metres (45.9 to 59.1 feet). Designed for the construction sector, the range consists of the MT1436, MT1440 and MT1840 models. According to Vertikal.net, the new machines have improved stability with a maximum of 1.2 tonnes (2,645.5lbs) carried using stabilisers. Buyers can choose between a conventional hydrostatic transmission and a "soft shift" torque converter which Manitou claims reduces material loss when starting.
