Om shows off new ICEs
Italian munfacturer Om Carrelli Elevatori used the recent CeMAT show to launch its new XD 15 and XD 25 forklifts.
The XD 15-30, based on the Italian-built XD 15-20 and XD 25-30 which made their debut in 2002, is available with load capacities of 1.5t, 1.8t, 2.0t, 2.5t and 3.0 tons.
The forklifts are powered by Yanmar 34 kW and 44 kW engines for diesel models and Nissan 33 kW and 38 kW engines for LPG models.
Om claims the compact size of the truck allows it to be used in narrower aisles.
The new XD 15-20 and XD 25-30 range is covered by the OM Intrinsic Safety Program (OMISP), which includes the Mast Safety System where the mast is locked when the operator is not seated or the engine is turned off. Crown launches RC 5500

GREENE, NY, UNITED STATES
Raymond Corporation's new Model 8900 pallet truck is being pitched at dock operations, loading and unloading trailers, and transporting pallets horizontally. The Model 8900 pallet truck features Raymond's ACR System for quicker acceleration, smooth operation and greater energy efficiency. AC motors deliver more run time per battery charge and experience less reduction in truck performance as the battery discharges, even with a fully loaded pallet, according to the manufacturer.
The pallet truck is available in 6,000 lb and 8,000 lb (2,721 Kg - 3,628 Kg) capacities and is available with an optional operator compartment sensor system.
