This new line of 8-Series AC reach trucks is designed for distribution centers, retail operations, refrigerated warehouses and third party logistics (3PL) applications. The three models include a single reach truck in 3,500- and 4,500- pound lifting capacities and a 3,000-pound capacity double reach model. The trucks feature an AC-powered drive system, AC power hydraulic system (on 36-Volt models), and a virtually maintenance-free electric disc brake. Operators will be enabled to handle more pallets per hour, per shift and react faster to operator commands. The truck features a standard active thermal protection cooling system, which consists of a new ventilated motor compartment, high-capacity inlet cooling fan, and drive and lift motor controller heat sinks. Combined, these work to introduce cooler ambient air to the motor compartment area, while ventilating the warmer air out through the various compartment openings.
