JCB added two liquid propane gas (LPG)-fueled models to its range of Teletruk forklifts. The new JCB TLT 25 LPG and TLT 30 LPG Teletruks are suited to indoor and emissions-sensitive applications.
The telescopic counterbalance forklift lifts higher and reaches further than a conventional forklift, and the Teletruk design also eliminates the visibility obstruction created by a forklift mast, according to JCB.
The primary difference between the two new models is lift capacity; the TLT 25 LPG has a maximum lift capacity of 5,500 lbs., and the TLT 30 LPG has a maximum lift capacity of 6,600 lbs. Both machines have a maximum lift height of 13 feet, 1 inch and forward reach of 4 feet, 8 inches. Both models are powered by a 59-hp Tier 4 Final-compliant Kubota engine.
All Teletruks also are equipped with JCB’s LiveLink telematics system. In addition to the new LPG machines, JCB North America continues to offer the diesel-powered TLT 35 D Teletruk for construction applications.
