All-terrain forklift range extended
02 July 2019 | Web Article Number: ME201914937
SHAMROCK Handling Concepts has extended its range of specialist Agrimac all-terrain 4x4 forklift trucks. Typical applications are in agriculture and forestry, mining, industrial sites, building and construction, as well as outdoor warehousing and military applications.
“The main advantage of these tough off-road forklift trucks is one machine has the capability to move stock in all environments, without the need for the use of other vehicles. For example, one Agrimac forklift truck is able to move stock from a yard or field safely to a warehouse,” said Marius Schutte, Divisional Managing Director, Shamrock Handling Concepts, part of the Capital Equipment Group (CEG) of Invicta Holdings Limited.
“Our Agrimac range - which encompasses TH-160, TH-210, TH-250 TH-300, TH-300 and TH-350 machines – is able to drive on rough, unpaved surfaces, where conventional vehicles are unable to travel.
“These 4x4 forklifts are fitted with large heavy-duty pneumatic tyres, which add stability and traction when operating in wet conditions and on uneven terrain. Another advantage of 4x4 forklift trucks over conventional forklifts for outdoor operation, is they have a high axle centre, ensuring good ground clearance, without damaging the under-carriage.”
Schutte said that because minimal electronics are used, the likelihood of electronic malfunctions is reduced, operation is easier and there are fewer replacement components.
“Agrimac forklifts have also been designed for enhanced operator safety and comfort and a specially-designed tilting cab provides easy access to components for effortless maintenance. Optional features – including various lift masts and attachment accessories – enable users to efficiently meet specific handling tasks in all industries.”
The Agrimac TH-160 forklift series, with a 23,5kW power rating, a water cooled 3-cylinder engine and 1 600 kg load capacity, has a fully hydrostatic two-speed engine and variable pump flow. Changes from forward to reverse travel and from fast to slow speeds are easily controlled by an electrical switch. Progressive travel speeds are from 0 to 9 km/h when slow and 0 to 21 km/h when fast. A slow-approaching system is facilitated by an inching pedal.
The TH-210 machine, with a 31,7kW power rating and a 4-cylinder water engine, provides constant traction on four-wheel drive, with a security clutch and electro-hydraulic disconnection on the rear traction. The TH-250 forklift truck has been designed for constant traction on the front axle in two-wheel drive and constant traction on four-wheel drive, with electro-hydraulic disconnection on the rear wheels. This machine, with a 44kW power rating and 2 500 kg lift capacity, has a 4-cylinder air or water-cooled engine and a double brake service system.
The TH-300 44kW forklift series, with a 3 000 kg load capacity, achieves progressive automatic travel speeds up to 25km/hour. This machine is fitted with an automatic torque regulator and an electrical switch to control forward and reverse motion. The hydrostatic steering system has a double body pump and an independent circuit. Standard equipment includes a duplex mast, lateral off-set and 1,2 m forks. Optional features consist of duplex and triple masts up to 6 m, various fork measurements and a 500-litre loading shovel, as well as sweepers and cabins.
The TH-350 47,5kW machine offers a 3 500 kg lifting capacity and travel speeds up to 23 km/hour, with an inching pedal and constant traction on four-wheel drive, with electro-hydraulic disconnection. This forklift truck has an external turning radius of 4 150 mm and an internal turning radius of 1 750 mm.
