The overall result of how well the machine's functions work together is categorized by the performance of the machinery. The equipment's overall efficiency is determined by a combination of capacity, user-friendliness, lifting speed and visibility.
The engine and the machinery working hydraulics go through extreme lifting, that puts intense demands on the machinery. The lifting factor is only a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the equipment being able to unload or load, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with high pulling process and precise control. All of these functions should be able to operate in an optimum fashion, even after heavy usage.
Each and every empty container handler is made with a straight six cylinder turbo charged engine outfitted with an intercooler. The engines are adapted to the particular working conditions of empty container handling. These conditions comprise high power and high torque levels at low engine speeds.
Presently in the industry, the engines of current units follow the strict legal environment demands. The engines offer low noise and vibration levels, low exhaust emission levels, low fuel consumption characterize all engine alternatives.
All of the trucks in the series are equipped with excellent and extremely durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For fast acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has integrated gearbox and torque converter. The gear changing is electrically achieved via solenoid valves. These provide 3 forward and 3 reverse gears which are controlled by means of a multifunction lever which is easily operated.
The rugged drive axles have engineered to handle the different working environments in ports and terminals. All axles have reduction in 2 stages - hub reduction and differential. These features guarantee a minimum of strain on the transmission system. Additionally, the drive axles are fitted with a hydraulic braking system.
Service Brake System
Wet Disc Brakes which have oil cooled discs which are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub equip all empty container handlers. When 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 could deal with heavy loads over a long period of time and is basically maintenance free. This system provides no fade and requires no need for brake adjustments.
