Australia's Jungheinrich distributor, NTP Forklifts, has delivered two custom-built paper roll handlers to media giant News Limited.
The compact tub-design forklifts have a capacity of 1,500 kg and can pick up and carry newsprint rolls with a diameter of up to 1,275 mm directly from the floor.
The units can be used in either ride-on or pedestrian modes via a folding platform and feature lateral safety hip restraints for the operator.
The ERK units have all of the standard Jungheinrich features including infinite speed control with adjustable drive parameters including speed limiting, electric power steering, automatic speed reduction on cornering, re-generative braking, and automatic parking brake on standstill.
With extremely low energy consumption, the forklifts are capable of extended or even double shifts on one battery charge.
