The performance of the machinery is the overall result of how well the machinery functions and works together. The machine's overall effectiveness is determined by a combination of capacity, user-friendliness, visibility and lifting speed.
The working hydraulics and the engine go through extreme lifting and this places intense demands on the equipment. The lifting component is just a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the machinery being able to unload or load, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with precise control and high pulling power. All of these functions have to be able to work in an optimum fashion, even after heavy usage.
Each and every empty container handler is built with a straight six cylinder turbo charged engine equipped with an intercooler. The engines are adapted to the particular working conditions of empty container handling. These conditions consist of high torque levels and high power at low engine speeds.
Currently in the industry, the engines of existing units comply with the strict legal environment demands. The engines provide low vibration and noise levels, low exhaust emission levels, low fuel consumption characterize all engine options.
All of the trucks in the series are equipped with exceptional and really durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For fast acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has incorporated gearbox and torque converter. The gear changing is electrically attained by solenoid valves. These offer 3 forward and 3 reverse gears that are controlled by means of an easily operated multifunction lever.
The rugged drive axles have engineered to deal with the various working environments in ports and terminals. All axles have reduction in 2 stages - differential and hub reduction. These features ensure a minimum of strain on the transmission system. Additionally, the drive axles are fitted with a hydraulic braking system.
Service Brake System
Wet Disc Brakes that have oil cooled discs that are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub equip all empty container handlers. Once the brakes are engaged, the discs are pressed together by hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal. This offers effective braking to the model. The system is basically maintenance free and is able to deal with heavy loads over a long period of time. This system offers no fade and requires no need for brake adjustments.
