The four models in Linde Material Handling-North America’s 1313 Series of hydrostatic drive cushion-tire lift trucks are LPG-powered and have capacities ranging from 5,000 to 6,500 pounds for severe applications, with a frame constructed of ½-inch steel and 5/8-inch cross bracing. The hydrostatic drive system transfers power from the engine to the wheels, making the lift trucks suitable for earth-moving, logging, construction and mining. The system, with no clutch or friction-service brakes, is designed to manage the adverse effects of ramps, dust, heat, humidity, pushing, shoving and bulldozing. Among the series’ other features:
• High-economy engine technology: LPG engines provide high torque, low fuel consumption and low emissions;
• The company’s Clear-View Mast offers added visibility, residual capacity and electronic limiting of the tilt angle;
• Twin drive pedals allow for a quick change of forward/reverse directions with the short pedal stroke;
• LTC (Linde Truck Control) features microprocessor control technology matched to individual application requirements with automatic control of engine RPM;
• LLC (Linde Load Control) facilitates accurate, safe load handling and effortless fingertip control of all hydraulic functions. Traction and all hydraulic functions are independent; and
• A spacious cab provides added legroom, visibility of load and surroundings, noise abatement and reduced road shock thanks to a cushioned steer axle.
