Extension of BX product lineup with 6,500-lbs. capacity delivers advantages for optimal performance
MARENGO, Ill. (September 11, 2019) – Expanding our four-wheel electric product offering, UniCarriers Americas (UCA) has announced the launch of its BXC65 4-Wheel, cushion tire, electric forklift. The new BXC65 is an extension of the BX series with a 6,500-lbs. capacity.
As part of the highly successful BX line, the new BXC65 offers reliable, high-performance AC technology, including 100% AC motor and hydraulic systems. To reduce downtime, the BXC65 features on-board 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% 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, a UCA exclusive, comes standard on the BXC65 for faster and easier functionality. And, the highly sophisticated operator presence system with return-to-neutral and seat-actuated auto-mast lock features comes standard.
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 8-degree forward and 5-degree backward angle. A single/double 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,” said 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 now, with shipment starting in November 2019.
