Linde Targets Mainstream Forklift Market with Two New ModelsPosted: September 14, 2017 Filed under: Equipment, news, Uncategorized | Tags: charlotte, greensboro, Linde Forklifts, New Cushion Forklift, new forklift, New IC Forklift, New Pneumatic Forklift, raleigh Leave a comment
Linde by KION has announced it is adding two new internal combustion models to its line-up to compete with mainstream market model forklifts. The strategy is to provide the Linde quality that Linde customers expect, at mid-level pricing. By replacing the hydrostatic drive with a more conventional, but still massive differential, torque coverter type transmission, and a Ford 2.5L fuel injected engine, Linde can provide the type of quality that is synonymous with Linde products, at a lower price point.
This is exciting news as Linde forklifts traditionally have been reserved for those companies that have the highest duty cycle and harshest operations. But now, Linde forklifts will be more widely accessible for the mainstream forklift market.
The two new models are the 1219, pneumatic tire, LP and the 1319, cushion tire, LP. Both models come in 5,000, 5,500lb, 6,000lb. and 6,500lb. capacities. We are very excited about the opportunity to present these forklifts to our markets and we know that once Baltimore and Southern Pennsylvania get a look at these models and a quote from us, they’re going to be a big hit!
