CESAB LAUNCHES ADVANCED R300 REACH TRUCK RANGE
One of the most advanced reach trucks on the market, with load capacities from 1400 to 2500kg, lift heights up to 13000mm, and powerful energy efficient AC drive motors.
Delivering a superb operator experience, the Cesab R300 reach truck brings superior all-round visibility, a workspace that is fully adjustable to each operator, and a suite of innovative features, including 360° steering, Optimal Truck Performance, Transitional Lift Control, Intelligent Mast Design (IMD) and a touchscreen colour display.
Every area of the operator compartment has been designed for optimum ergonomics and driver comfort, with a fully adjustable, long-life seat and low-profile steering column that creates more knee space and better palm support for reduced fatigue.
Safety levels have been improved even more on the Cesab R300 as a result of a complete review of the mast design, delivering higher residual capacities, better stability, lower closed heights and improved visibility.
One of the superior strengths of this new generation IMD mast is the transitional lift control. This helps the free lift and main lift to move simultaneously during mast lifting and lowering, which ensures a smooth and shock-free transition. As the mast travels in one linear movement, this promotes faster lifting and lowering. Operators experience greater comfort because the smooth transition means that no shocks are transmitted to the chassis.
A large, full colour touchscreen display provides easy interaction between the R300 and the operator, helping them remain continuously aware of load handling details at any given point. This can be enhanced by an optional display positioned just under the overhead guard in the line of operator sight. This display repeats the load information as it appears on the main display, helping the operator to constantly keep an eye on their work whilst checking the position of loads.
Optimised truck performance supports every move that operators make, allowing the truck to be used to its full potential, safely and efficiently. It includes Optimised Corner Control, which automatically adjusts drive speed by constantly measuring the steering angle. The higher the steering angle, the more the speed is lowered. Another feature of Optimised Truck Performance is Optimised Reach Control. This monitors the weight of the load and lift height to automatically adjust reach speed whenever needed.
The Cesab R300’s 360° steering enables smooth, continuous and fast maneuvering, enabling operators to change the direction of travel in one continuous movement without reducing speed or stopping.
Ton de Hollander, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Cesab Material Handling Europe, said:
“We’re very excited to bring the Cesab R300 to the market and believe it will be one of the most advanced and probably the most adaptable reach trucks available. This is due to not only a highly ergonomic work space for operators but also multiple options that businesses can select when they choose the Cesab R300. These include an optional fork position laser, transparent overhead guard, blue-spot warning lights, a dedicated cold store version and Bluetooth speakers.”
“We look forward to helping customers transform their warehouse operations with the Cesab R300.”
