Doosan’s new 9-Series currently includes nine forklift models

The new Stage V compliant machines have capacities ranging from 3.5 to 5.5 tonnes.

They feature a G2 Doosan-built diesel engine and are said offer easier maintenance. Access to the engine and service areas has been improved with a side panel and floor plate that do not require any tools to open and an engine hood that opens to a 70˚ angle.

Doosan said safety was a key consideration in the design of the 9-Series. The new forklifts feature an electronic parking brake that automatically activates when the operator leaves the cab, as well as an operator sensing system that prevents the machine from moving unintentionally when the operator leaves the seat.

The models also have improved visibility, speed limits and LED lights, which it said were brighter than traditional sealed beams or halogen lights. 

According to the company, the total cost of ownership for its 9-Series forklifts is 71% less than that of its previous range over a five-year period.

Further models in the range are due to be release later this year, with capacities of between 2 and 3 tonnes, followed by higher capacity models in 2021.
