Forklift manufacturer UniCarriers Americas (UCA) has launched its new PD Series Pneumatic Internal Combustion (IC) Diesel forklifts. This next-generation IC diesel series, which replaces the outgoing FK Series, is designed with the horsepower and torque needed for demanding work applications, while delivering lower emissions and higher fuel economy, the company says.

Standard features designed to maximize operator comfort and productivity include full suspension seats with adjustable lumbar, multi-function LCD/LED display, fuel saver mode, ground speed control, operator presence system, and standard memory tilt steering.

Under the hood is an ultra-efficient 4EG 3.3L Tier 4 Final compliant diesel engine that provides a high-pressure common rail fuel injection system, a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Additional conveniences include no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or additives required and easy service access.

Optional features include:

  • Full-suspension swivel seat
  • Fingertip control armrest
  • Foot direction control
  • Engine shut-down system
  • Rear grab bar with horn button
  • Light, strobe and alarm packages
  • Hydraulic Lift Line Accumulator
  • Elevated Air Intake Pre-Cleaner
  • Martin cab and Harris-Stolper cab options
  • "The features of the new PD Series are focused on the operator," said Mark Porwit, director, corporate planning, UniCarriers Americas, in a prepared statement. "The significant increase in the number of available options offers more solutions and improved productivity, along with UniCarriers' best in class 2-year warranty."
