Flexi articulated range expands
Tipton, United Kingdom

Flexi Narrow Aisle Ltd has added a 2.5 T forklift to its Flexi range of articulated forklifts.
Sales director John Maguire says with its narrow chassis, the forklift can operate in aisles as narrow as 1.8 m (5.9 ft.) wide.
"Until the launch of the Flexi AC 2.5T, if industrial customers needed a Flexi truck capable of lifting heavy loads to heights of 10 m (32 ft.) or more, (they) invariably had to compromise on space efficiency."

Linde's facelift for heavy trucks
Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Linde Material Handling (UK) is upgrading its H50-H80 heavy truck range from this month to include better ergonomics, and a different engine type to reduce emissions.
To comply with the latest stage of EU emissions regulations, the forklifts, powered by a Deutz diesel engine, will be fitted with a diesel particle filter as a standard feature - rather than as an option. The trucks will also have the Line Engine Protection System to monitor the temperature and pressure levels of engine and hydraulic oil, coolant and water in the fuel filter as standard.
