KONECRANES LAUNCHES NEW GENERATION C RANGE OF LIFT TRUCKS

04-02-2016

Konecranes has introduced its new Generation C series of lift trucks, which includes the full range from 10-65 ton forklift trucks, container lift trucks and reach stackers.

The range was first introduced to Europe and North America at CeMAT Hannover 2014, and since then has enjoyed enthusiastic uptake in excess of several 100 units.

The Generation C lift trucks are already hard and reliably at work in the European and North American fleets.

The C series lift truck includes a completely new driver’s cabin with first-in-class features to enhance safety, comfort and productivity.

The C series also boasts increased reach stacker lifting performance, an enhanced TRUCONNECT remote monitoring system and improved engine performance. The C series is equipped with common platform diesel engines that meet emission legislation levels EU Stage II/EPA Tier 2, EU Stage IIIA/EPA Tier 3, or EU Stage IV/EPA Tier 4f.

These new engines are in general several decibels more silent and can save up to 6 percent in fuel consumption over previous ones. Most engines can be supplied with a start/stop function to further reduce fuel consumption, typically between 5 - 15%, and to extend the factual engine service life.

The new driver’s cabin offers operators class-leading spaciousness and superior visibility made possible by an even more ergonomic layout with integrated seat-mounted controls. The industry’s first 7” touch screen color display provides full truck monitoring including eco-drive, fuel management and driver login. The touch screen monitor also supports an optional integrated rear-view camera and tire pressure monitoring. The efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system offers a 50 percent overall capacity improvement.

Konecranes web based TRUCONNECT remote monitoring service is also available for the new C series lift trucks.

TRUCONNECT monitors everything from fuel consumption and travelling, to utility work, service actions and critical events – for individual lift trucks as well as fleet of machinery.
