Forklift offers tight turning

Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK has launched the 7-Series of 1.5 to two-tonne electric forklifts.

One example of the upgrade on the 7-Series is the steer axle. It means the four-wheel B18X-7 turns to 86°, reducing the forklift’s turning radius to just 1,795mm.

A significant boost for on-site productivity comes in the form of the new side lift-in lift-out battery change system. Allowing batteries to be switched quickly and safely using only a simple hand pallet truck, this is suited to extended double- or triple-shift operations and vastly decreases downtime when changing batteries.

Other highlights include LED spotlights for better illumination but using less power, upgraded protection packages on the motors, virtually maintenance-free oil-cooled disc brakes, active energy control with regenerative braking, and the operator sensing system for ultimate driver safety.
