Linde Material Handling-North America Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Linde Material Handling GmbH, has introduced the new RX60 series of electric counterbalanced sit-down lift trucks. The eight models in the series have capacities from 5,000 (RX60-25C and RX60-25L) to 10,000 (RX60-50) lbs.
The RX60-25C and RX60-30C feature cushion drive and steer tires, while the six remaining trucks in the series have SE drive and steer tires as standard equipment.
A new rail design strengthens the mast and limits deflection while aiding visibility of the load and through the mast. Travel speeds reach 12 MPH, and lift speeds reach 100 FPM. The trucks feature automatic power boosts, activated when the system sensors demand, to negotiate railroad crossings, curbs, steep ramps, or other obstacles.
The trucks' low noise level (68 dBa), floating operator compartment, tilted floorboard, adjustable suspension seat, and adjustable steering column help to minimize strain on the operator.
