First hybrid forklift on display at show
Power Forklifts Ltd has announced its exclusive New Zealand-wide distributorship of the Still range of German designed and manufactured electric, LPG and diesel forklifts.
Still forklifts are part of the Kion Group, which is the second largest manufacturer of forklift trucks in the world and is the only manufacturer to date offering hybrid technology in the New Zealand market.
Power Forklifts will be displaying the Still hybrid forklift stand 150 at the Materials Handling Show, which runs in conjuction with the National Safety Show on July 3-4 at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
Hybrid technology equates to massive fuel savings by being predominantly electric drive which uses energy generated by a small fuel efficient VW LPG or diesel engine rather than a large traction battery.
The nature of this technology also means that the machine produces far less emissions than any other LPG or diesel forklift available in the world, Power Forklifts says.
New Zealand fleet operators will enjoy the benefits of:
- 25-50% fuel savings over existing brands in the market
- Lowest emissions of any LPG or diesel forklift currently in the market
- German build quality encompassing award winning design and functionality
- Reduced downtime due to 1000 hour service intervals and lifelong brake system
- Cornering stability control
- Wide clear view mast construction
- Capsulated AC drive components give reliable use under the hardest site conditions, and are resistant to dust, dirt and water
- Optional built-in 70 litre LPG tank saves on bottle swap downtimes
- Spacious and well-structured workplace for drivers
The Still products will be launched on July 3 this year.
Power Forklifts is also pleased to announce the launch of two new exciting new products from its existing brands. The first of these is the new compact 2.5-4 tonne diesel and LPG range of multi-directional forklifts for long loads in tight working areas. The second product is the new narrow aisle articulated electric walkie stacker with power steering and the ability to work inside and outside in lanes as narrow as 1.6 metres wide.
