Cesab Material Handling has unveiled the new Cesab M300V, a range of diesel and LPG forklift trucks that comply with European Stage V emission regulations.

With capacities from 1.5 to 3.5 tonnes, the Cesab M300V series has been designed for high power, low fuel consumption and very low maintenance. The range is specially engineered for even greater business efficiencies, optimum productivity and improved reliability.

European Stage V regulations¹, which will apply to all non-road mobile machinery manufactured from 30 June 2021 onwards, will require machines of all types and sizes to produce 40% less emissions, or a maximum 0.015g of soot per kw.

The low emission 1ZS diesel engine on the Cesab M320V to M355V delivers outstanding economies of operation, with fuel consumption reduced by up to 20%. This compact three-cylinder engine, offering extended 1000 hours service intervals, is designed to eliminate vibrations and features chain driven distribution and an electronically controlled common rail fuel system. The compact variable nozzle turbo charger promises the highest torque even at low engine speeds.

The new Cesab M320V to M355V models eliminate many of the issues connected with diesel particulate filters, such as the need for frequent servicing and downtime as the diesel particle filter auto-regenerates every 250 hours during the normal work cycle.

Simple, water-only cleaning of the filter is required only once every 6000 hours, via the easy access filter, which can be removed in under five minutes thanks to an innovative counterweight design. Due to the large capacity of the particle filter, there is no risk of premature clogging, even in low-intensity applications.

For handling loads under two tonnes, the Cesab M315V and M318V models feature the re-engineered industrial 1DZIII diesel engine, well-known for its high reliability and durability. The 1DZIII diesel engine without particle filter offers a highly economical solution with lower maintenance costs. With 17.5 kW power, these models offer comparable performance, and under speed-limited conditions the productivity is fully maintained.

The new 4YE-DLI engine on the Cesab M300 Stage V LPG features distributor-less ignition for better combustion and lower maintenance. The new LPG regulator enhances reliability and reduce maintenance costs.

A new, full-feature display provides easy to understand, comprehensive information on the truck and diesel particle filter. 

Programmable speed reduction and auto engine shut-off, turtle speed and eco-mode are all now standard.  Both standard and optional lights are full-LED with reduced energy consumption and a 20,000 plus hours’ lifecycle.

Miles Griffin, General Manager of Cesab Material Handling UK, said: “Cesab engineers have shown ingenuity in forklift and engine design by delivering a materials handling range that meets Stage V low emission requirements, but also removes the issues associated with diesel particulate filters and guarantees even higher performance levels.

“The Cesab M300V range will provide operations across the UK with a purpose-built answer to meeting Stage V legislation, improving their carbon footprint and achieving ever higher levels of service and reliability for customers.”
