baoliSUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Kion North America released the Baoli Series 6012. Offered in two different models, KBD40 and KBD50, the Baoli Series 6012 is a diesel, four-wheel truck equipped with single or dual SE or pneumatic drive tires, making it suitable for a variety of environments.

The KBD40’s lift capacity is 8,000 lbs. The KBD50’s  lift capacity is 10,000 lbs. Both models have excellent residual capacity at height.

The Kohler Tier 4 turbodiesel engine delivers 74 HP and plenty of torque to more easily handle heavy loads. With Kohler’s advanced, common rail direct injection system and Electronic Control Unit (ECU) with fuel mapping, these trucks are very fuel efficient. They do not need a Diesel Particulate (DPF) or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).

For maintenance, the hood opens to a nearly 90-degree angle allowing the operator to easily access the engine compartment. Removable floor plates provide access to a majority of truck components.

The Baoli KBD40/KBD50 is equipped with standard comfort features, including a tilting, adjustable steering column and a comfort suspension seat with a high-visibility orange seat belt.

A roomy, cushioned operator compartment makes these trucks comfortable for any size operator.

Baoli brand equipment is fully integrated into Kion North America’s supply chain and service system.
