The performance of the machine is the overall result of how well the machinery functions and works together. The overall efficiency of the machine is determined by a combination of capacity, user-friendliness, visibility and lifting speed.
The engine and the working hydraulics go through extreme lifting and this places intense demands on the machinery. The lifting component is just a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the machinery being able to unload or load, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with precise control and high pulling power. All of these functions must be able to operate in an optimum fashion, even after heavy usage.
Each and every unit of empty container handlers are outfitted with straight six cylinder turbo charged engines which are equipped with intercooler. The engines are adapted to the specific working conditions of empty container handling. These conditions comprise high torque levels and high power at low engine speeds.
Presently in the industry, the engines of current units comply with the strict legal environment demands. The engines offer low exhaust emission levels, low vibration and noise levels, low fuel use characterize all engine options.
All of the trucks in the series are equipped with exceptional and really durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For fast acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has incorporated gearbox and torque converter. The gear changing is electrically accomplished by solenoid valves. These offer 3 forward and 3 reverse gears that are controlled by means of an easily operated multifunction lever.
The rugged drive axles have engineered to deal with the different working settings in terminals and ports. All axles have reduction in 2 stages - hub reduction and differential. These features ensure a minimum of strain on the transmission system. In addition, the drive axles are fitted with a hydraulic braking system.
Service Brake System
Wet Disc Brakes that have oil cooled discs which are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub equip all empty container handlers. Once the brakes are engaged, the discs are pressed together by hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal. This offers efficient braking to the model. The system is basically maintenance free and is able to deal with heavy cargo over a long period of time. This particular system provides no fade and requires no need for brake adjustments.
