)-- As sole distributor in Southern Africa of the Doosan Infracore range of forklifts, Goscor Lift Trucks announced that the Doosan GX series pneumatic diesel forklift trucks (2,000-3,000 kg capacity) has been available since July 2007.
Doosan Infracore builds forklift trucks based on customer needs and provides material handling solutions rather than just forklifts. With the GX series they achieved their goal to provide an economic material handling solution without any compromise to performance, quality and productivity.
The GX series lift truck promotes operating efficiency with its wide range of features which results in economical ownership, low fuel consumption, simple design for serviceability, optimized operator comfort and reliable components and sealing system.
One of the most prominent features is low fuel consumption. "The Doosan GX range is fitted with a 3.3 liter Cummins diesel engine specifically designed for this forklift truck. Efficient fuel consumption, low noise levels and low emission with longer service intervals provides a big advantage to this forklift trucks' value. These trucks are also fitted with dual element air cleaners which has a larger capacity than the standard filters which also extends service intervals making this one of the most economic forklifts on the market." says Darryl Shafto MD of Goscor Lift Trucks.
A spacious operator compartment and optimized pedal positions provides increased operator comfort, which results in reduced operator fatigue. Other operator centric features include an easy-to-read instrument panel, electric direction lever, high visibility overhead guard/front end and last but not least, large foot steps and grab bar.
Darryl Shafto continued to say that the Doosan GX series is available 20% cheaper than oil cooled disc brake trucks making this one of the most economic materials handling solutions currently available in South Africa.
Standard equipment on these diesel lift trucks include a diesel engine chassis, powershift transmission, shoe brake, power brake, power steering, dual element air cleaner, parking brake, anti restart ignition key switch, maintenance free battery, tilt steering wheel, 2 front floodlights, counterweight, overhead guard, vertical exhaust and an operator sensing system.
