Three levels of choice

Published:  28 May, 2007

The 1st March saw the launch of the new Samuk+HC R Series forklift truck. With the introduction of this new range of diesel or LPG trucks, users that want a truck in the popular 1 to 3.5 tonnes range will have the choice of three specifications.

Available in three specifications: R, Rc and R+, the new trucks match the truck's specification to the application. The regular R model is aimed at 80% of the market, offering high performance and reliability. It features major components from leading European manufacturers and is suitable for between two and five thousand hours use annually. Having a probable 15,000 hours use between major overhauls, these trucks will have a good residual value.

The Rc version is lower cost. It still features high quality components but is specified for between one and two thousand hours use annually.

While the R+ includes extra features like a fully suspended power train. These trucks will be bought by the top 10% of the market for whom Health and Safety and high performance are key issues. The suspended power train reduces vibration and noise which means operators and bystanders are happier.
