1. What is a diesel forklift?
A diesel forklift truck is a forklift truck powered by a powerful diesel engine.
2. What are the advantages of a diesel forklift truck?
A counterbalanced diesel forklift truck requires little maintenance. Since the vehicle is robust and can withstand rain, wind, and mud, it is also ideal for outdoor use. The high torque of the diesel engine also allows for fast lifting and driving speeds. Diesel forklifts do not need to be recharged, and can be restarted immediately after a brief refuelling period. The engines are durable and powerful.
3. Where can diesel forklift trucks be used?
Jungheinrich weatherproof diesel front forklift trucks are designed for outdoor use and are ideal for covering longer distances over uneven terrain.
4. What fuel does a diesel forklift truck need?
Diesel forklift trucks do not require any special fuel and use standard industrial diesel, which is available at any filling station.
5. What are the operating costs of a diesel forklift truck?
The cost of inspection and maintenance of a diesel forklift truck can vary depending on the model. Added to this are the costs for the fuel (diesel) and the personnel costs for the forklift driver.
6. Are there any operating restrictions for a diesel counterbalanced forklift truck?
In spite of its low-emission engine, the diesel forklift truck can only be used indoors for a limited time.
7. How can I buy a diesel forklift from Jungheinrich?
On the Jungheinrich homepage, it is possible to buy, lease, or rent a diesel forklift truck.
8. What driving speeds can a diesel front loader reach?
Depending on the model, the forklift can reach speeds of between 17 and 21 km/h. The speed also depends on the transport load of the diesel forklift.
9. How long does a diesel forklift truck need to reach its maximum lifting height?
The lifting speed is between 0.48-0.6 m/s, depending on the load and model.
10. What is the lifting capacity of diesel forklift trucks?
Depending on the model, a diesel forklift truck can carry up to 2000 kg (DFG316/320) or 5000 kg (DFG540s-S50s).
11. Do Jungheinrich diesel forklift trucks meet the EURO 5 emission standards?
Jungheinrich diesel forklift trucks are equipped with low-emission engines. Thanks to a diesel particle filter and a diesel oxidation catalytic converter, the trucks comply with EURO 5 emission standards.
12. What is a hydrodynamic drive in diesel trucks?
With a hydrodynamic drive for diesel forklift trucks, the torque is transmitted to the drive axle using dynamic oil pressure. This allows for a higher degree of efficiency, making it possible to cover longer distances with lower fuel consumption.
13. What is a hydrostatic drive for diesel front loaders?
With a hydrostatic drive, power is transmitted via a closed system. This means that the diesel forklift truck can be manoeuvred carefully while, at the same time, having high power transmission capabilities.
14. How far can you get with one tank of fuel in a diesel forklift truck?
Diesel forklifts trucks from Jungheinrich are generally designed for 3-shift operations. However, depending on the intensity of use and transport load, the operating time can vary.
15. Are the diesel trucks controlled via a gear shift?
This differs depending on the drive solution. With hydrodynamic drives, diesel front stackers are equipped with an automatic transmission (torque converter). Diesel trucks with hydrostatic drives have a 1-speed gear shift.
16. What is the fuel consumption of a Jungheinrich diesel forklift truck?
The fuel consumption of the powerful Kubota engines is approx. 2 to 7 l/h, depending on the model.
17. What is the horsepower of Jungheinrich diesel forklift trucks?
Depending on the model, engines with a power output of 31 to 60 kW are used for the diesel forklift trucks.
Our gas forklift and diesel forklift trucks offer the perfect combination of power and capacity. They can carry loads ranging from 1,600kg up to 5,000kg while ensuring rapid turnaround and the utmost efficiency in your warehouse and production.
Are you primarily looking for powerful forklift trucks for use in outside areas? Then we recommend our trucks with combustion engines – in diesel or LPG form – which offer reliable performance even in wet environments and on uneven surfaces. And if you require more power for indoor applications, a combustion truck is still an excellent choice.
Depending on the model, our powerhouses can handle loads weighing up to 9,000kg. You also have the option of equipping your truck with a comfortable driver's module that can be rotated by 180 degrees. This makes light work of narrow aisles and reverse travel. Handling is also very straightforward, no matter which version you opt for: Diesel forklift trucks can be refuelled in a matter of minutes, while the gas bottle on the LPG trucks can be replaced in an instant.
The engines in our gas and diesel forklift trucks are not only durable, but have proven their worth in numerous applications. These are powerful engines that have been well tested in large-scale series production in the automotive industry. They deliver high torque at low speeds, making them ideal for daily use in your warehouse or production facilities. The combination of this modern engine technology and Jungheinrich's own system software makes these trucks highly energy-efficient. They are characterised by outstanding fuel consumption and extremely low emission values. The minimal noise levels serve as a further advantage on these forklifts. Both the diesel forklift trucks (DFG) and gas forklifts or LPG forklifts (TFG) are extremely quiet.
Reap the benefits of our new generation of diesel and gas forklift trucks equipped with hydrostatic drives, such as the DFG/TFG 425s/430s/435s. Since this technology requires fewer mechanical components, the trucks require minimal maintenance. At the same time, the robust and versatile trucks with torque converters deliver very high throughput performance: Compared to competitor trucks, they offer the highest throughput combined with the lowest consumption.
