Doosan Industrial Vehicle (DIV) has launched five 2 to 3.5-tonne capacity forklifts incorporating the award-winning G2 diesel engine.
The D20S-7, D25S-7, D30S-7, D33S-7 and D35C-7 models meet stringent EU emissions standards without using a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF). They also set new standards for proven low fuel consumption.
Tim Waples, director of DIV UK, said: “Euro Stages IIIB and IV regulations require the latest engines to achieve an enormous 90% reduction in emissions of gases and particulates compared with the power units they replace, which is a real challenge presented to engine manufacturers.
“Our engine division invested millions of pounds developing an engine that changes the game in diesel combustion, without the operator ending up out of pocket.”
The G2 won the Innovation category at the Fork Lift Truck Association awards 2014. It features lower fuel consumption, longer maintenance intervals and maintenance- free after-treatment systems that cut total cost of ownership for the life of the engine. It uses diesel oxidation catalyst exhaust treatment technology along with an exhaust gas recirculation system.
DIV UK has teamed up with Investec Asset Finance to offer a ‘three months free’ five-year contract hire plan worth up to £1,500. This only applies to its new diesel counterbalance product.
