United Fork­liftk­lifft and Ac­cess So­lu­tions now of­fers Power Drive in Aus­trala­sia, a drive line tech­nol­ogy no loggy that de­liv­ers up to 25% in fuel sav­ings–with­out im­pact­ing on the power of the ma­chine.ma­chine.

The new sys­temtem is de­signed to fur­ther en­hance fuel sav­ings while keep­ing its out­stand­ing per­for­mance for or cu cus­tomers s tome rs and of­fer­ing a lighter en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print for its ma­chines, says United, na­tion­al­tion­aal dis­trib­u­tor for Konecranes lift trucks in Aus­tralia, New Zealand and Pa­pua New Guinea.inea.

The Power Drive de­liv­ers the same power as a con­ven­tional driv­e­line – and with lower noise pol­lu­tion – but with 15-25 per­cent less fuel us­age, de­pend­ing on op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“The new Power Drive Tech­nol­ogy is now avail­able as an op­tion on our Konecranes fork­lift trucks, con­tainer lift trucks and reach stack­ers. We es­ti­mate that the fuel sav­ings as­so­ci­ated with this new fea­ture will have paid back the ini­tial in­vest­ment in ap­prox­i­mately six months,” says John Mori­son, Konecranes Prod­uct Man­ager, United Fork­lift and Ac­cess So­lu­tions.
