The first equipment to be launched out of a total of 13 are the following:
Moving you further… in an easy way
All the trucks in the new warehouse equipment range have excellent manoeuvrability and are designed with a short chassis which means the machines have a small turning radius and are easy to use in confined spaces. The ‘Turtle Button’ allows precise operations in small areas and the operator is able to work with the tiller in a completely upright position which makes the truck more compact and precise when unloading.
Durability is key
Hyundai use reliable parts on the new range of machines from renowned suppliers which make the machines more durable and dependable. The machines have welded forks which also add to the durability and strength of the machines.
Safety is a major priority with the new range and the machines are manufactured with an anti-roll back system and a regenerative braking system with intelligent speed control – this means the machine will automatically slow down when changing direction. Also the speed is reduced when descending a ramp which ensures the safety of the operator and warehouse personnel.
The 20EPR and the 15ESR are Ride-On machines, which are manufactured with a folding stand-on platform, so the operator does not have to walk beside the machine to operate. The suspended platform guarantees a safe and comfortable ride for the operator and is especially effective and easy to operate on an uneven surface.
Focus on high productivity
The new range offers as standard a side battery removal system for multiple shift operation. At the end of the vehicles shift it’s easy to change the empty battery and replace with a reloaded one ready for the next shift. The machines also benefit from a battery locking system which secures the battery in position for added safety which prevents the machine from operating if the battery is not in the correct position.
The 18EP and the 15ES are Pedestrian models. One of the main features of these machines is the long tiller which ensures a low steering force when manoeuvring – this safeguards the operator from being too close to the machine and prevents unnecessary accidents.
Another new machine making its debut is the 16BRJ-9 electric reach truck. The newly designed sit-on reach truck provides every operator comfortable driving, increased productivity, easy maintenance and is safe to operate.
The new steering control coupled with the new Electric Power Steering control gives the operator exceptionally smooth and controlled steering for tight spaces.
The LCD colour monitor with 3.5-inch graphic smart display allows the operator to easily and efficiently control the machine. The monitor provides information about speed and accelerator level, steer angle and travel direction, battery discharge indicator, hour metre and working mode.
The optional load indicator displays the load weight and the height of the fork in the monitor. The operator can select various performance modes to meet all working conditions. The monitor also displays information about operation error, system fault, battery level, plus other various functions and enables the operator to maintain the forklift in optimum operating condition.
