JCB shows new electric-powered Teletruk at IMHX
On its stand at IMHX 2019 JCB will showcase models from the Teletruk range of telescopic lift trucks, including the newly launched JCB 30-19E – the first electric-powered machine in the Teletruk range.
The JCB Teletruk is distinguished by a telescopic forward reach boom and was developed as an alternative to conventional lift trucks, which have a front-mounted mast that raises and lowers loads only vertically.
The forward reach functionality makes the Teletruk suitable for applications where containers, curtain-sided trailers, vans and other delivery vehicles have to be loaded and unloaded quickly, safely and efficiently.
JCB says that when it comes to loading and unloading containers from within a building, the Teletruk offers superior performance to other types of materials handing equipment while, outside, the Teletruk can load or unload a curtain-sided trailer in les than 30 minutes and requires 30% less space to work in than conventional counterbalanced trucks.
There are 11 different models in the JCB Teletruk range and the introduction of the new battery-powered version means that Teletruk technology can now be deployed both inside and outside the warehouse, distribution centre or factory facility.
