Diesel Power

Nissan Forklift Corp. introduces the GO6 Series, with a larger lifting capacity coupled with a fuel-efficient diesel engine, to its Platinum line. The heavyweight pneumatic tire GO6 Series forklift truck features a powerful diesel engine, allowing it to lift loads of up to 17,500 pounds and heights of up to 26 feet, say officials for the Marengo, Ill.-based company. The diesel engine, equipped with a turbo charger, has a common rail fuel injection system that uses the optimal amount of fuel for greater power and fuel economy. Its turbo charger creates more power by forcing compressed air into the cylinders. This constant pressure boost occurs over the entire rpm range, for greater torque at low speeds. To further maximize the turbo’s benefits, an intercooler chills the compressed air, creating a denser intake charge. As a result, more power is produced with a large reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions through its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). It is through this design that the GO6 emits exhaust levels well below what is required by Tier III standards. “The GO6 Series forklift truck not only provides the reliable performance and increased productivity that our customers have come to expect, it also keeps the air free from heavy exhaust emissions,” says Steve Cianci, director of marketing and product management.
