The forklift’s new design offers optimum manoeuvrability, a highly ergonomic cabin and improved all-round visibility. The electrohydraulic steering has also been replaced by a purely electric steering system, ensuring maximum energy efficiency during operation.
Even in its basic configuration, the vehicle is already designed for gradual automation.
Predetermined cable runs, positions for sensors and other equipment features ensure the forklift is ready to meet the challenges posed by Industry 4.0. Numerous assistance systems can be integrated retroactively, for example.
