New Ausa rough terrain forklift has landed

20-02-2012

Lencrow has just taken delivery of two new C500H 4wd Ausa rough terrain forklifts, fitted with Full Grip selectable 4wd transmission.

The new Full Grip system is engaged with the push of a button – located on the multi-purpose joystick – and used only as required.

This system reduces tyre wear up to 50 per cent on hard surfaces and improves the maneuverability of the unit. A Kubota 63kW engine powers the units.

The units delivered are fitted with a fully enclosed Ausa-designed cabin, with maximum visibility and factory cooling and heating.

The package is complete with a suspension seat offering the operator a safe and comfortable working environment.

The Ausa C500 is compact for an all terrain unit of this capacity – 2000mm wide and 3450mm long – to the face of the tyres.

It is designed for off-road with 280mm of ground clearance and 18-19.5 tyres on the front and 10.0/75 -15.3 on the rear.

Ausa units come with full road lighting as well as amber rotating beacon and reversing alarm.

They comply to the current safety braking system required in mine applications, with spring apply brakes.

The brakes will come on in the event of the unit’s engine stopping.

“The new model is a vast improvement on our previous units, says Rod Jackson of Lencrow.

“The drive is smoother and the unit steering is more direct with better lock, he says.

“The air conditioning works very well, cooling the cabin in minutes after we left it in the sun for two hours.”
