    Doosan Industrial Vehicle Announces New Electric Products

    Dealers Observing New Stand Up RiderWith high energy and much anticipation, Doosan Industrial Vehicle North America announced two new products – a Stand Up Rider and Walkie End Rider. “Each of these products were engineered to excel in the North American market,” Andre Marshall, Product Manager stated.

    Like all of Doosan’s current offerings, these first generation products are designed with the operator in mind. This includes safety features like Guardian Stability System (GSS) and LED lights, and maintenance-friendly access to service points and extended service intervals.

    The overall durability of the Stand Up Rider is outstanding because all key components have been field tested in our electric sit down products. Even though this unit is new to the family, its technology has proven success.

    The Walkie End Rider is a heavy-duty machine with 5 year/10,000 hour warranty on the entire frame structure. Built with European high-yield steel, this unit is a tank. Some of the standard key features include cushion knee pads, ergonomic tiller handle, padded grab bar, and unlimited ramp hold.

    Doosan Industrial Vehicle America Launches New Sport Cab

    Doosan does it again with the sleek styling and superior performance of their lightweight, polycarbonate sport cab. Designed exclusively for Doosan’s Heart-of-the-Line forklifts, this utility player covers all the bases. The ‘No Wait Time’ cab can be factory installed, fitted on location, stocked in your Parts Department, or ordered by the piece. Additionally, the cost of the cab versus a traditional steel cab makes adding it to your roster a breeze.

    “This was a very exciting project to lead,” Doug Erbeck, Pricing Analyst said. “First, from a practical perspective, we were developing something that solved a couple of the main resistance points with aftermarket cabs today in our industry: cost and lead time. The cab we developed is a fraction of the cost and installs within a few hours. Second, from a design/functionality standpoint, I believe we’ve gone to great lengths unmatched in our market today.”

    Doosan’s new Sport Cab features enhanced ventilation, allowing the operator to have maximum air flow throughout the cab. Designed specifically for elements to be easily removed, the cab will fit your needs, whether they are seasonal or year-round.

    “From our choice of material, to lift-off doors and a tilting roof panel, we’ve created something that not only addresses visibility and versatility issues but remains true to our identity, and is distinctively and unmistakably Doosan,” Doug stated.

    Simply Bold – Doosan’s 9-Series

    Simply Bold. These two words have a lot of meaning behind them, especially when it comes to our latest product – the 9 Series Cushion Tire Trucks.

    This forklift simply gets the job done. With an easy to enter 3-point entry system, tilting and telescopic steering column, and ergonomically positioned hydraulics, this lift truck and your operator will become a dynamic duo.

    When it comes to safety, this is our safest lift truck yet. Our new mast assembly now creates 27% improved visibility. A clear, digital display gives pertinent details in real time. Our Operator Sensing System (OSS) automatically engages important safety functions like stopping truck movement when the forklift operator steps off the truck, warning the operator to fasten the seat belt before operating, and ensuring the directional lever is in neutral to start the truck. The new 9-Series cushion tire forklifts have a fitted rubber floor mat to provide maximum comfort, as well as shock and sound absorption benefits.

    In its boldness, we have a brand-new counterweight design that increases air flow through the radiator for added cooling capacity. Its compact design tightens the turn radius for better agility in close confines. The sleek new design sets the 9-Series miles ahead of the competition.

    And in our boldest move yet, the 9 Series Cushion Tire Forklifts can save customers an average of more than $3,600.00 over five years on brakes, steer axle maintenance and planned oil changes.

    IMH Donates to The American Red Cross

    With the melting snow in the area and from up north, along with heavy rains, Illinois experienced flooding in the Rockford area that elevated to a natural disaster level.  On March 21st, the American Red Cross of Northern Illinois called Illinois Material Handling’s Rockford location and asked if they had a forklift to assist in the unloading of a semi-trailer of disaster relief supplies. Without hesitation, IMH supplied them with the Doosan forklift they needed the next morning so they could respond to the flood victims with supplies they needed.

    Ron Leffler, Disaster Action Team Manager, wanted to pass along his sincere appreciation from the American Red Cross to Illinois Material Handling and the Wolter Group for their generosity with helping the local community when a natural disaster hits.

    Doosan Runs Tough | Customer Testimonial

    Doosan Truck in Tight SpaceWhile visiting our dealer in Massachusetts, Lift Truck Parts & Service, we had the opportunity to sit down with Aaron Adelung, Service Manager of The Joseph Freedman Company Inc., and talk with him about how his Doosan’s deliver.

    Tell me about your company?

    The Joseph Freedman Company, Inc., was founded in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts by Joseph Freedman, great grandfather of the current company president, John D. Freedman. The company has built a reputation for being one of the pioneering leaders in industrial scrap metal recycling, specializing in aluminum, copper, nickel alloys and aircraft scrap.

    What applications do you most use the Doosan forklifts?

    Our aerospace application uses the Doosan forklifts prominently because the control required demands rotating side shifters. The forklifts rotate over the tops of bins and sorting tables, as well as on the backend once the metal is separated to stack and relocate the material.

    Tell me a little more about the aerospace application and how the trucks run?

    The trucks run non-stop in this facility from 6 AM to 5 PM, with at least two operators for each truck. If one needs to do another operation, the second one can jump right in. The oil that coats the material is slick, and there is considerable greasy build up. This oil makes this application tough and is very hard on any forklift. We have tried several different brands of forklifts, but the Doosan is the only one that has been able to handle the aerospace application.Aaron talking about the Aerospace application

    What do you like about your Doosan?

    They are durable; we have not had any problems with ours so far. Some of the chemicals that come out of the materials we scrap can do severe damage, and the Doosan’s are the only ones that have held up from the harshness of the chemicals. We currently have five Doosan’s, and I haven’t found anything that I don’t like about the Doosan forklift. I also appreciate my partnership with Lift Truck Parts and Service. They are always quick to respond if we need repairs on any of our trucks. If they don’t have a part right away, they work to get it to us by the next day.
