Jungheinrich launches revamped counterbalanced fork lifts

Dec 18, 2014
Jungheinrich has launched the latest addition of its hydrostatically driven 3s, 4s, and 5s series of engine-powered counterbalanced fork lift trucks.

Thanks to a new control system, the trucks have high energy efficiency and deliver top performance, with extremely low fuel consumption.

As part of the re-engineering process, the trucks feature a new hydraulic pump which delivers exactly the right amount of oil required for the trucks’ operational hydraulics. In practice this means an increase of up to 20 per cent in the efficiency of the lift and hydraulic functions. In addition, a new engine design means the trucks not only meet the requirements of the latest European emissions directive, but offer significantly improved energy efficiency that results in a reduction in fuel consumption of around eight per cent.


To ensure maximum productivity the trucks’ engine speed increases automatically during lifting operations. Hydrostatic drive technology ensures steering and operational hydraulic operations are direct, precise and effortless. While five pre-set operating programmes enable the driver to adjust the operational characteristics of the truck to suit the job at hand with the touch of a button.


A new compact mast means the driver's field of vision has been significantly enhanced too. Compact nesting of sections, optimised hose and chain guides as well as two openings in the crossbar, all improve driver visibility by up to 85 per cent. The design of the trucks’ control panel gives the driver an excellent view of the load and fork tips. A strut-free, safety glass window in the overhead guard affords the operator an unobstructed upward view when stacking and retrieving pallets, while the position of the counterweight ensures a clear view to the rear.


Craig Johnson, Marketing Manager of Jungheinrich UK Ltd said, “Hydrostatic drive ensures excellent driver comfort and high throughput rates, especially in intensive operations.”
