England 14/09/2013 – The CESAB B600 class of forklift will soon be launched and mechanical handling firms, across Europe, are gearing up for the event.
Amongst them is Hitec who recently sent a delegation to the CESAB factory to see the B600 on the production line. Hitec have been selling and leasing mechanical handling equipment in the UK for 27 years using their website, http://www.askhitec.co.uk/ to keep their customers updated about new developments.
Over the years, they have seen the use of forklifts spread as firms from all industries have begun to use their storage space more effectively. Increasingly, farmers are adding racking to outhouses allowing them to buy their pesticides, seeds and other essentials in bulk and take advantage of better discounts. In addition, many SMEs have moved away from on floor storage to racking to make better use of the space they have available in an effort to avoid having to lease bigger premises.
For Hitec the B600 series is an exciting prospect. The fact that the truck will be available in such a wide range of configurations is a big plus. It means that they can add a machine to their range that is flexible enough for virtually any kind of business to use.
Three chassis variations
The B600 will be available in three chassis variations with a capacity of between 2000 and 3500kg. It expected that these new reach trucks will be compact and exceptionally manoeuvrable. These days space is at a premium, so firms want to be able to configure their warehousing as tightly as possible, for them a highly manoeuvrable reach truck is essential.
All of the trucks will be produced using TPS and feature Intelligent Mast Design (IMD) providing the operator with exceptional forward visibility. IMD improves safety, comfort and performance.
The B600 range of forklifts will also have two 80 VAC motors. These provide great lifting power without high power consumption. LED lighting has been used to reduce power consumption even more. The trucks also feature regenerative breaking and do not need a cooling fan, again keeping power consumption to a minimum, something that is of increasing importance as the cost of electricity continues to rise.
