Focus on: Hydrostatics
The hydrostatic drive features a pump which is powered by the internal combustion engine. This pump transmits power in the form of oil pressure via a closed circuit linked to the two hydraulic engines in the drive axle. The driver controls the volume and direction of the oil flow – and therefore the speed and direction of the truck – using two pedals: the Linde dual pedal control. The truck's direction can be changed simply by switching pedals. This closes the cycle of oil which slows the truck, meaning a brake system is not required – and the same is true of a clutch or transmission. This is how Linde's hydrostatic drive is able to work fluidly, entirely uniformly, and smoothly. This innovative form of transmission is what gives Linde's internal combustion trucks their dexterity and efficiency.
Cost-Effective and Robust Forklift Trucks
Efficient handling, ergonomic workspaces, and comprehensive safety packages – these are the guidelines that have led the development of the latest generation of IC trucks. That's why, for example, the trucks boast exceptionally economical engines, and can also put in an incredible number of operating hours without interruption, as they only rarely require servicing, while easy to access service modules ensure that maintenance processes are quick and simple.
Safely on the Move in the Truck
There are many factors in a forklift truck that play a role in ensuring the safety of the driver and the load, including exceptional visibility, assistance systems, and a wide range of structural protection elements – whether the Linde Protector Frame for up to five ton models or the optimal visibility counterbalance for heavy trucks. This is how Linde IC trucks ensure the highest degree of safety in any application – for both the driver and their environment.
