UniCarriers Americas (UCA), Marengo, Illinois, has announced the launch of its BXC65 four-wheel, cushion tire electric forklift. The new BXC65, an extension of the BX series, has a capacity of 6,500 pounds.
The new BXC65 offers reliable, high-performance AC technology, including 100 percent AC motor and hydraulic systems, the company says in a news release. To reduce downtime, the BXC65 features onboard diagnostics delivering immediate truck status. Offering fast acceleration, travel and lift speeds, the BXC65 is engineered to deliver greater productivity in the most demanding applications.
Operator conveniences include a high visibility carriage, a five-piece overhead guard that takes 75 percent less time to make overhead guard leg replacements and a full suspension seat with lumbar support for maximum ergonomic comfort. A single handle control lever comes standard on the BXC65 for faster and easier functionality.
The BXC65 offers optional features including cloth and vinyl swivel seats, a 60-millimeter raised overhead guard required for swivel seats (also available as a standalone option) and a bottler’s tilt with an eight-degree forward and five-degree backward angle. A pallet attachment is also available as a custom order modification. The attachment allows the operator to move one pallet at a time or two at once, allowing for fewer trips and greater efficiency.
“We knew we needed a product like the BXC65 to fulfill customers’ needs, and we are excited about what it has to offer,” says Mark Porwit, director of corporate planning for UniCarriers Americas. “We are actively listening to our dealers and customers, so that we are able to develop products they can depend on for ultimate reliability and performance.”
The BXC65 is available with shipments starting November 2019.
