Forklift manufacturer Samuk introduce the B Series counterbalance truck

Leading lift-truck specialist Samuk is winning orders for its latest range of counterbalance forklifts, the B Series. Designed in line with the company’s KISS (Keep It Simple Specification) philosophy, the B Series comprises a range of heavy-duty, ultra-reliable workhorses made at the brand new Chinese factory of Samuk’s manufacturing partner Hangcha.

The B Series offers counterbalance fork trucks with lifting capacities from 1.5 to 3.5 tonnes. Both diesel and LPG engines offer exceptionally quiet, smooth operation, benefiting drivers and bystanders. An excellent view of forks, load and road is assured by a clear view mast and a high driving position, as well as the panoramic rear-view mirror. Access to the driving position has been made safe and easy by the addition of a step whilst a full suspension seat provides comfort and lumbar support, reducing physical stress. A full range of options is available, from premium cabs to four-cylinder clear view triplex masts at reasonable prices.

All Samuk trucks offer laptop-free maintenance up to 12 tonnes capacity at 600mm load centre. In fact, expensive, unnecessary gadgets are conspicuous by their absence. Nothing is added to a truck unless it will provide a genuine operator benefit and it mustn’t conflict with the easy servicing and maintenance promise of which Samuk is so proud.

B Series oil changes are at 500 and 1,000 hours, as is servicing for the powertrain and running gear. Long-life oil-immersed disc wheel and transmission brakes have a target working life of 8000 hours, although 10,000 hours is not unheard of. After 7500 hours, Samuk offers an exceptionally low-cost refurbishment to give the vehicle a second life or prepare it for resale.

Other notable features of the new B Series models include a suspended powertrain, a 4/5 multi-disc F/R clutch pack and micro-filters for all systems. Significantly, the B Series relies upon the latest Tier 4 and 3A engines featuring sub-tropical cooling and separate radiators for the engine to avoid overheating the cylinder head gasket and high temperature ‘bluing’ and distortion of the clutch pack plates.

Commenting on the new B Series, Samuk’s Chairman, Sir Neville Bowman-Shaw, says, "All Samuk trucks reflect our KISS – Keep It Simple Specification – and are easily serviced by mechanical engineers, without the need for laptops or complicated technology. But don’t let the basic design fool you – Samuk’s advanced engines and hydraulics provide reduced emissions as well as quieter and smoother operation. The new B Series is attracting great interest from companies wanting tough trucks offering high performance and exceptional reliability."

The Samuk/Hangcha partnership manufactures and distributes a proven range of counterbalance and warehouse trucks throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe. Its new $150 million Chinese factory is capable of producing up to 80,000 trucks a year. Customer support is a vital element of the Samuk philosophy and the company’s network of local dealers ensures a first-class, personal service for every customer.
