Linde has added 12 new 5-tonne to 8-tonne load capacity LPG and diesel forklift trucks to its 39X series EVO range in Australia.

The company says the new models will specifically benefit customers in the beverage, construction materials, paper and foundry industries, flagging fuel savings of up to 20 percent compared to the previous version.

"New features make the compact yet powerful H50 to H80/1100 EVO trucks even more efficient and safer to use than their highly-rated predecessors," Linde says.

"Extensive exhaust after-treatment technology has lowered emissions further than ever before," it adds. "A change to electronic drivetrain control and new state-of-the-art engine technology provides a high level of fuel efficiency, but not at the expense of performance.

"The large ratio range of the variable displacement pump and motors of the hydrostatic Linde drive allow optimised engine characteristics and high performance to be achieved at low speeds."

Also contributing to fuel efficiency are three operator-selectable drive modes – Economy, Efficiency and Performance – are available to match performance to the task in hand.

Like the rest of the EVO range, the new forklift models feature torsion support and associated torsion rack design features.

"The torsion rack is attached above the overhead guard on the mast, in addition to the overhead tilt cylinders and is fed between the torsion supports on rollers," Linde says. "The firm connection between the mast and overhead guard help reduce the torsional forces acting on the mast by up to 30 percent.

"Stability is increased to allow faster handling when lifting wide or swaying loads, or goods with a high load centre. The torsion rack also takes over the function of an overhead guard, moving along when the driver tilts the mast forwards or backwards."

The upshot of having this tech on board is higher residual capacities and additional safety when moving heavy paper rolls, laminated timber or block clamps.

All the 8-tonne vehicles have a full-rated load capacity up to a height of 6.5m.

Adding to the new H50-H80/1100 EVO forklifts’ safety is the inclusion of the Linde Engine Protection System (LEPS) and the Linde Curve Assist as standard.

The LEPS monitors engine parameters such as the oil level, oil pressure, cooling water level and temperature, and alerts the driver to any necessary maintenance needed. It reverts to creeping mode, if necessary.

The Linde Curve Assist reduces driving speed during cornering proportionally to the steering angle.

, thus ensuring operational safety. Linde is the only manufacturer worldwide to provide this function as standard, without any additional cost.

The cabin on the new forklifts is decoupled from the drive and steering axle by rubber-metal bearings, which absorb a high level of vibrations and shocks and protect the driver from whole-body vibration.

On the power side, the Deutz diesel engine uses exhaust gas recirculation and AdBlue after-treatment to meet EU Emission Directive 2004/26/EC Level 4 in the performance range from 56kW to 130kW, which requires an 88-percent reduction in the allowable nitrogen emissions.
