Wide portfolio on show.

The twin themes on Jungheinrich's stand at IMHX 2010 were high productivity and low cost of ownership. Visitors were able to see and discuss a wide range of products from the company's wide portfolio of materials handling equipment and racking and storage systems.

Among the products shown for the first time is a new model multi-directional reach truck for long load handling. The new truck has been designed to significantly reduce tyre wear during operation - thereby cutting running costs - with all three wheels powered electrically.

Jungheinrich's range of electric-powered tow tractors, which are offered in capacities from one to 25 tonnes, were also highlighted. Like all Jungheinrich electric-powered handling equipment, models in the tow tractor range feature the latest generation AC motors for high productivity and low running costs.


There was also a strong focus on counterbalanced trucks. Among the three and four wheel machines on show were Jungheinrich's VFG range of IC engine-powered counterbalance lift trucks.

Used equipment from Jungheinrich's Ready to Go range were also displayed with a 'cut-away' truck graphically illustrating the thorough rebuild process that all Jungheinrich used equipment goes through before being starting its second life.
