Heavy-duty diesel and LPG forktruck

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Linde Material Handling launches its newest addition to the industrial truck family with the Linde Series 1204 IC engine-powered truck.

It’s available in diesel and LPG and capable of moving heavier loads from 3.5 to 5 tons. The Linde Series 1204, available with 7,500 – 11,000 lb. capacities, is a powerhouse performer. Its robust design, hydrostatic drive, and rugged industrial engine delivers capabilities ideally suited for the harshest environments, including recycling companies and construction material yards. In addition, it has a standard 24″ load centre with unbeaten residual capacities while using forklift attachments, enabling heightened productivity while navigating challenging terrain.

The Linde Series 1204 has 1,000 hr. maintenance intervals and maintenance-free features that ensure increased output and low cost of ownership. In addition, the Linde Engine Protection System (LEPS) monitors the engine to safeguard peak performance and alerts the driver of necessary planned maintenance while protecting against damage and unplanned downtime.

The hydrostatic drive  ensures exact power transmission. The drive system enables on-demand power where engine rpm is automatically set to the power needed for travel or hydraulic operation without operator interference. This capability allows the driver to concentrate on safe load handling rather than the additional task of applying engine power and being distracted.

Upon stepping onto the platform with the aid of a handlebar and entry lighting, the operator has options of multiple customized adjustments for seating, including the armrest, and the steering column, where operators can create an individual ergonomic triangle inside the compartment. In addition, the mast and plexiglass overhead guard significantly increase the operator’s field of vision with a clear line of sight and all-around visibility, which decreases awkward positioning while performing tasks.
