Introducing the Linde MT15 Electric Pallet Truck

With a load capacity of 1500kg the MT15 offers a highly cost-effective and productive solution for short distance transfer duties. The rugged drive unit offers consistent reliability and performance.
The 85Ah long-life battery is maintenance-free and to extend battery life has automatic discharge protection, which cuts the lift function when the battery reaches the 80% discharge level.
The DC drive motor optimizes uptime ratios between routine service periods and reduces service costs, while a reliable, energy efficient controller delivers smooth handling performance. The absence of a hydraulic lift system further reduces service costs.

The powered traction and lift of the MT15 minimises the operator’s physical input and provides a highly productive and strain-free working environment. It is equipped with an electromagnetic failsafe and a parking brake. A robust metal cowling protects the drive unit and components, while the low profile chassis protects the operator’s feet. The long, low mounted tiller arm places the operator at a safe yet comfortable working distance from the truck.
The dual butterfly control levers on the ergonomic tiller head ensure precision traction control with either hand. The truck is very manoeuvrable when operating in lorries or confined spaces. A built-in charger enables opportunity charging at any convenient power point for optimum uptime.

The durable drive unit of the MT15 delivers consistent high performance and reliability. A unique castor wheel system ensures excellent stability when cornering and eliminates the risk of ‘grounding’ the chassis. There is a discharge indicator and an emergency isolator button. The robust chassis has a reinforced fork structure for the safe, efficient handling of loads up to 1500kg.
Whether you’re after a brand new forklift, a certified pre-owned used forklift or short-term and long-term forklift hire, Linde Material Handling Australia has everything you need – all under the one roof.

NEW CAMSO forklift tyres to offer customer 20% extra life.

Camso recently expanded its tyre product portfolio with the launch of three new forklift tyres. These are the Solideal RES 660 Xtreme Series, the Solideal RES 550 Magnum Series, and the Solideal RES 330 Series. All of the new series of CAMSO forklift tyres are distinguished by a blue square molded into the tyre to highlight new tread compounds.
According to Mike Dembe, Product Management Director of North America and Latin America- Construction, they believe that businesses can maximize productivity and profitability with choosing the right tyre for a specific application. Basically, Camso designed the new Solideal RES series with the purpose of decreasing operating costs of forklifts.
Erick Bellefleur says that their new industry-leading Solideal RES tyres offers maximum lifespan. That is, within an array of different application intensities. Because of this, fleet managers can definitely optimize their investment. The Product Line Executive Director of Material Handling, Camso, explains that it’s their job to understand the unique mobility needs of any forklift application.
In essence, tyre wearing depends on the load capacity of a vehicle and how far a forklift travels. It would also include the number of hours, the floor type, and even the behavior of the operator. Camso ultimately designed a tyre that would be able to last longer than other models. These would be able to cope up with the demands of the applications regardless of the environmental conditions as well.

First off, the Solideal RES 660 is highly resistant to heat. That’s thanks to its performance compounds and low rolling resistance. It’s ideal for very intense applications that require long runs, heavy lifting, and minimal downtime. It guarantees an increase in stability in corners and lifting loads, too. Not to mention that there’s a reduction of vibrations because of the continuous centre lug.
In the meantime, the Solideal RES 550 is suitable for carrying medium to heavy loads. Although, they can’t function 24/7. Since it has a wide profile, deep lugs, and large footprint, there is surely an improvement in stability and safety. In addition to those, these features enhance tyre traction on rough and uneven surfaces as well.
Lastly, the Solideal RES 330 is perfect for those machines that run in tight spaces on an intermittent basis. Camso boasts of the RES 330 for being the longest-lasting tyre in the industry for this specific application.
These tyres are set to be released in the second half of 2017 and supplied through major forklift rental companies installed on behalf of BEARCAT TYRES – The Australian Division of CAMSO.
