New premium brand IC engine forklift range offers exceptional value proposition

Jungheinrich has launched a completely re-designed generation of IC-engine powered counterbalanced forklift trucks.

The new ‘Torque Converter’ hydrodynamic drive trucks have been engineered in such a way that allows maximum cost-efficiency to be achieved in the manufacturing process.

But despite their attractive value proposition, the trucks – which are manufactured in Germany at Jungheinrich’s state-of-the-art Moosburg factory – are built to the same high standards as all models across the Jungheinrich range and feature the same high quality components associated with the Jungheinrich brand.

Available with a capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes and a lift height of 7.5 metres, the new models – the DFG/TFG 316-320 and DFG/TFG 425-435 ranges – are powered by Kubota engines, which are used in arduous applications around the world.

The diesel and LPG forklifts feature hydrodynamic drive – or ‘Torque Converter’ technology – to ensure robust operation in all applications. Indeed, Jungheinrich say, that, prior to their launch, the new models were  extensively tested (for far longer than the accepted industry norm) at some of the most demanding sites around the world – from Poland to Brazil – to ensure that they are capable of achieving optimum performance at a wide range of temperatures, as well as extremes of humidity and in the most rugged terrains.

In developing the new range Jungheinrich’s engineers have made significant innovations to the trucks’ mast, chassis and steering axle.

For example, the counterweight on the new trucks is an integral part of the load-bearing chassis, while the steering axle has been integrated into the counterweight. This means that the truck’s centre of gravity is extremely low which ensures outstanding stability without the need for additional and costly electronic stability systems.

The new models’ drive shaft features integrated maintenance free wet disc brakes which, when compared with standard drum brakes (as supplied to the majority of Jungheinrichs’ competitors), virtually eliminates service costs.

Moreover, thanks to the brakes’ encapsulated design, harsh external conditions do not diminish their performance.

Meanwhile the standard high-performance cooling system performs at maximum efficiency even in extreme temperatures. The radiator is a single unit made completely of aluminium. This makes the new trucks highly suitable for operations in all environments and protects them from dust and other harmful environmental factors.

An ‘L-shaped’ engine bonnet that can be tilted almost 90-degrees and quick-release side panels provide excellent access to the engine compartment which, combined with the high quality of the components used throughout the trucks, means servicing is fast, easy and economic and doesn’t require a laptop – therefore truck downtime is minimised.

Within the operator’s cabin, a slim steering column offers greater leg room, while the fully adjustable seat can be set to the position each driver finds most comfortable. In addition, a host of organisational aids, like, for instance, a cup holder and clip pad, allow the operator to maintain an uncluttered and productive workstation

The new model ranges feature an electric parking brake as standard.  The operator simply presses a button to activate the brake, while a new lifting mast design ensures improved view of the payload, forks and general working area. In fact, the visibility in all directions is class leading – which enhances all round safety throughout the shift. The new Jungheinrich Benchmast gives an improved field of vision by up to  85% at the tip of the forks.

“These new ‘torque converter’ trucks are rugged machines. Our engineers have driven costs out of the manufacturing process and produced a range that is tough and easy to service, while offering best-in-class operator conditions,” says Jungheinrich UK Ltd’s Sales Director, Jonathan Morris.

“We are confident that the market will respond enthusiastically to the new trucks. They offer the same exceptional German engineering that users have come to expect from the Jungheinrich brand and a wide range of added value features. The trucks’ build quality and design features make this range an extremely cost-efficient product that offers the user outstanding value for money – which is all summed up in our marketing campaign for the new truck called ‘Trust Your Machine’,” he added.
