JCB has Stage V-compliant liquid petroleum gas (LPG)-powered forklifts – four months ahead of time, the company has confirmed.
The LPG Logistics Teletruk range includes three powered by Kubota clean burn engines that meet the emission regulations due to come into force from January 1, next year.
The TLT 25/27 and 30 models with immediate effect, now comply with the reduced particulate number, particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emission requirements stipulated for industrial vehicles in the forthcoming EU legislation.
More fuel efficient
In addition to meeting the latest emissions standards, the upgraded models are 25% more fuel efficient than the versions they replace and, typically, can undertake a full eight-hour shift on a single bottle of gas. The reduction in fuel consumption not only optimizes truck up-time but also means total cost of truck ownership is minimized.
Paul Murray, JCB’s Teletruk general manager, said, “We are delighted that JCB can offer models in the best-selling Teletruk LPG Logistics range that already meet the EU’s latest emissions standards.
“Gas is the fuel of choice for industrial forklift trucks customers and LPG-powered Teletruks are in operation across the world.
“With their emissions compliance and enhanced fuel efficiency, the upgraded LPG Logistics models represent an outstanding value proposition for logistics service providers everywhere.”
Offered with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, the Teletruks also benefit from improved service access as well as enhanced engine airflow and protection – features that combine to deliver in excess of 10,000 hours of high performance operation.
