Forklifts forever REF : MMPR 519

CriterionxBenefits to the industry: The TCM range of forklift trucks, available exclusively in Southern Africa from Criterion Equipment, now includes a new FB-VIII electric counterbalanced series, with advanced design features for enhanced performance.

Sustainability: The new FB-VIII series (a Class 1 sit-down rider type) has been developed for lower power consumption than previous models and for extended periods of operation between battery charges. This significantly improves productivity and enhances the environmentally-friendly features of these machines.

Maintenance: Other benefits of these electric forklift trucks include greater controllability of the vehicle, improved safety, minimal maintenance requirements and enhanced operator comfort.


Newest generation hydraulic excavator REF : MMPR 518


DoosanxBenefits to the industry: Doosan’s newest generation hydraulic excavators – the heavy duty DX225LCA series – has been designed for greater operator comfort, improved fuel efficiency, enhanced productivity and minimal maintenance requirements.

Sustainability: Doosan’s high strength excavators have a new six-cylinder water cooled engine that is optimised and electronically controlled to boost production, maximise fuel efficiency and ensure harmful emissions remain well below the values required for Tier II engines.

For optimum control, the e-POS system (Electronic Power Optimising System) provides a perfect synchronised communication link between the engine’s electronic control unit and the hydraulic system. A controller area network system facilitates a constant flow of information between the engine and hydraulic system, ensuring power is delivered exactly as it is needed.

Maintenance: Maintenance and oil change intervals can be displayed, a self-diagnosis function allows technical problems to be quickly resolved and an operational memory provides a graphic display of the machine’s status.


Strong workhorse REF : MMPR 517


BobcatxBenefits to the industry: Bobcat Equipment South Africa further augments its immense range of over 130 attachments with the introduction of the new Industrial Wheel Mover to the South African market.

A first in South Africa, the unique and robust Bobcat Industrial Wheel Mover has been specially designed and engineered locally to ensure the safe, easy and efficient removal and perfect positioning of large wheels with diameters ranging from 36" to 90".

Weighing 214kg, this workhorse boasts a lifting capacity of close to 1 700kg and is capable of safely handling tyres on any large vehicles or machinery operating in construction, mining, agriculture, forestry, and general industry.


Handles with care Ref: MMPR 475

Benefits to the industry: The Taylor THDC-955 avaialble through BLT SA can handle heavy ISO 20’ and 40’ containers, which have been loaded with high value engines and manufacturing components. This container handler, which has a rated capacity of 42 000kg, significantly improves operational efficiencies on site and also increases the overall full container storage capacity at the plant.

Operators are impressed with the chain suspended spreader that allows for easy handling and improved driver comfort. The shock, which normally travels through the machine when handling heavy loads, is absorbed by these chains.

The Taylor THDC-955 has enhanced safety features, including forward and reverse motion alarms, wide angle rear view mirrors, as well as hand rails and anti-slip steps. Axle mounted spring-on, air-off parking brakes, with a brake saver system, prevent the operator from driving through the parking brakes.
