Balkancar adds electrical platform trucks
Sofia, Bulgaria

Balkancar has released an upgraded family of electrical platform trucks. EP trucks are medium- to heavy-duty materials handling machines used to carry loads from 1,000 to 3,000 kg.
The platform trucks enable easy and long-distance transportation of bulk and non-palletised loads over asphalt or concrete roads.
The platform trucks can be ordered with different options and attachments like an open/closed cabin, trailer, covered platform, power steering, etc.
Balkancar is a Bulgarian manufacturer with 80 years of history in production and distribution of materials handling and warehouse equipment.

New order picker from Linde
Aschaffenburg, Germany

Linde Material Handling has launched a new high-performance, robust turret truck - the Linde V modular B vertical order picker. The man-up vehicle expands the intralogistics specialist's product range for warehouses, offering distribution centre operators and manufacturing companies an even greater choice of customised solutions.
With a load capacity of 1,000 kg and a reach height of up to 7.83 m, the vehicles meet customer needs in online retail, small parts logistics in distribution centres, and supermarkets. At their core, they are based on the larger V modular series, with the "B" in the model name standing for "Best Value".
The truck has a maximum driving speed of 11 km/h, and comfort is provided by the spacious cab, which is decoupled from the chassis and thus cushioned from vibrations. The low railing of the driver's cab allows for easy, reliable picking of goods from the rack, and the optional outward tilt function allows for the extra few centimetres of movement that are often needed for better access in the racking.
The mast design provides excellent visibility of the surroundings, and the electric steering makes it easy to manoeuvre with precision.

Mitsubishi adds heavy-duty electric
Walsall, United Kingdom

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has extended its range with the launch of a new EDiA XL electric forklift.
Stewart Gosling of RDD, the exclusive UK importer for Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, explains: "The new EDiA XL will do everything a diesel can do - only better. It is the first electric to fully overcome every issue that may have stopped some owners of IC engine trucks from making the switch to electric."
Available in 4-5 T models, EDiA XL will handle heavy-duty applications with ease.
Its AutoBoost feature kicks in automatically to provide torque and acceleration boosts where and when they're needed, like on ramps and steep inclines, so power drops are a thing of the past.
The electric differential lock feature gives the truck better traction and control, both indoors and out.
"EDiA XL is an exceptionally intuitive forklift," says Gosling. "Handling is smooth and precise, high lifts are rock-steady, while Four Wheel Steering enables a 100-degree lock, delivering the smallest turning circle on the market - perfect for working in tight spaces. There's no challenge the EDiA XL can't overcome."
With its ergonomic, adjustable seat, and its range of advanced control options, EDiA XL helps operators stay productive. In addition, noise levels inside the cabin are extremely low at just 65dB, and microvibrations are minimal thanks to the rubber-mounted cabin.
