In a move to revolutionize material handling, Linde Material Handling (MH) is proud to announce the launch of its latest offerings, the Linde T16 P and Linde T20 P compact pallet trucks. Designed with a focus on versatility and efficiency, these innovative vehicles boast a load capacity of 1.6 and 2.0 tons respectively, while maintaining a slim width of just 720 millimeters. With their foldable operator platform and cutting-edge features, these pallet trucks are ideal for accessing confined spaces and seamlessly transporting goods over short to medium distances.
Enhancing Productivity in Confined Spaces
The fast-paced nature of truck loading and the challenges of navigating cargo handling zones require equipment that can be maneuvered with precision. Peter Klug, Product Manager Warehouse Technology Germany at Linde MH, explains, “Our compact, ergonomic vehicles provide drivers with the utmost control, ensuring safe and efficient handling in confined spaces.” The Linde T16 P and Linde T20 P have been specifically developed to meet these demands, allowing employees to drive the trucks and save valuable time and energy. The foldable platform and side bars can be easily folded back when precise maneuvering is required. These models bridge the gap between pedestrian-only vehicles and high-performance ones, striking the perfect balance between efficiency, comfort, and safety.
Customized for Optimal Performance
Equipped with a 1.3 kW three-phase AC motor, the Linde T16 P and Linde T20 P can reach a maximum speed of 8.5 km/h. The automatic booster effect provides additional torque when needed, such as when driving out of potholes or freeing a stuck pallet. These pallet trucks boast impressive gradeability, with the capability to handle slopes of 15 percent when loaded and 20 percent when empty. The electric steering system ensures precise control even under full load, while the five-point contact configuration enhances stability during transport. Linde offers various energy options and state-of-the-art on-board electronics and connectivity features, allowing businesses to customize the trucks to suit their specific application needs.
Prioritizing Comfort and Safety
Safety and comfort are paramount in the design of the Linde T16 P and Linde T20 P. The robustly designed sideguards keep the operator within the chassis contours, providing reinforced protection. The ergonomic Linde tiller head offers a convenient activation angle of 65°, catering to drivers with different statures. The stand-on platform has been redesigned, offering easy access at a height of 162 millimeters and a width of 663 millimeters. The platform’s non-slip rubber surface minimizes vibrations and shocks, ensuring fatigue-free operation. Optional accessories, such as the metal accessory bar, can be added to attach work lights, scanners, or the Linde Blue Spot, further enhancing functionality. The availability of a load guard offers added security, preventing the load from shifting towards the operator.
Empowering Businesses with Innovation
Linde’s introduction of the compact pallet truck range demonstrates their commitment to pushing the boundaries of material handling technology. By providing versatile and efficient solutions like the Linde T16 P and Linde T20 P, Linde aims to empower businesses to optimize their operations, improve productivity, and navigate confined spaces effortlessly.
