The ultra-wide lifting masts on the R14 – R17 X trucks, narrow mast profiles and the proximity of the seat to the mast provide the best possible all-round view. An optional armored glass panoramic roof also provides a clear view of loads above the truck. An automatically engaging parking brake increases safety, for example, when stopping on ramps or gradients. The Linde Curve Assist assistance system supports the driver around bends by proportionally adjusting the speed. Four independent braking systems quickly and safely bring the truck to a stop in every situation. A wide range of additional equipment improves operating safety. For example, a camera system mounted on the mast provides the driver with a permanent view of the load.
The improved all-round view thanks to the wide lift masts, as well as the intuitive Linde Load Control mast control make precise load handling easy and comfortable. The innovative truck design with the low battery position doubles the space available in the driver's cabin. All control elements for driving and mast functions are ergonomically integrated into the armrests of the driver's seat and are individually adjustable. The seat can optionally be rotated by 10° and the control resistance can be customized. The interaction of the individual elements and the very generous amount of available space enable particularly efficient and fatigue-free operation.
The unique design of the R14 – R17 X series enables a compact chassis with a short wheelbase. This gives the truck outstanding maneuverability and it requires less space for load handling than normal reach trucks. The short reach travel distance, the unique view through the mast, as well as the standard side shifter for the forks also improve handling performance. The low positioning of the battery under the driver's work station and the permanent mounting of the mast on the chassis give the trucks a high residual load capacity and high stability. The dual-pedal control and Linde Load Control make the trucks faster and safer to maneuver.
Easy access to the key service components mean that these Linde reach trucks are extremely quick and easy to service. The truck data can be exported via the CAN bus system to provide the service technician with information on the condition of the electronics and mechanics. The battery is easy to change using a pallet truck or the optional replacement stand. Maintenance-free electric motors and service intervals of 1,000 operating hours mean that the trucks are extremely reliable and cost-effective.
