Doosan's new electric 80-volt forklift truck

Doosan has unveiled the electric 80-volt 2.2-ton to 3.5-ton capacity range of 4-wheel forklift truck models.

The latest additions to the 7-series range comprises an expanded range which includes XL long wheelbase variants with increased battery capacity.

The AC drive, steer and hydraulic motors, are reported to all deliver smooth and seamless power, while offering the lowest possible energy consumption. Other highlights include LED spotlights for improved illumination, however, the truck uses less power and offers vastly reduced bulb failures, upgraded protection packages on the motors and one of the most comfortable seats on the market.

The ergonomically designed operator compartment is said to keep the operator in complete control at all times; improving productivity, reducing stress and fatigue. The new cell offers improved visibility and the latest design in ergonomic hydraulic controls. There is also the improved durable chassis design, along with additional stability system. In addition, it is claimed a redesign of the masts provides greater visibility through the mast, with the rear grab handle accompanied by a horn and panoramic mirrors increasing safety and all-round visibility.

The new 4 wheel models have a brand new steer axle which has been designed to minimise the turning radius and can now achieve a 93.2° steer angle. In addition to this, the newly designed round shape of the counter-weight enables the truck to move comfortably in and out of narrow spaces, reducing damage costs while maximising storage potential.

In addition, the new range are also rated as safe for outdoor use. The new sealed controllers are rated to IP65 and the motors rated IP43, with an increased IP54 rating available soon.

The new trucks offer a wide variety of valuable safety features. Doosan’s ‘Guardian Stability System’ (GSS) meets all customer requirements and provides maximum stability during every operation.
