Linde Material Handling—North America Corporation (Summerville, SC) has introduced its new RX60 series of electric counterbalanced sit-down lift trucks. The eight models in the series have capacities ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 pounds, and are ideal for any manufacturing businesses with a need for emission-free, high-performance trucks. Features of the new lifts include:
- Fast travel speeds of 12 mph and a lift speed of 100 fpm, plus automatic power boosts to negotiate railroad crossings, curbs, steep ramps, and other obstacles.
- Better ergonomics, including a design to minimize strain and reduce driver fatigue, in addition to low noise levels (68dB).
- Durable materials, such as a heavy-duty cast ductile iron steering axle and a counterweight that dissipates naturally-occurring heat during operation.
- An energy return system that can extend battery life by up to 15 percent, according to the company, and the “Blue-Zone” memory adaptive software that can increase efficiency by 20 percent by remembering individual driving characteristics.
