Liberty Casting is a modern foundry based in Delaware, Ohio that specializes in gray, ductile and high-alloy iron casting. They serve customers over a wide variety of industries including agriculture, machine tooling, construction, food processing, power generation and more.
Throughout their three locations, they have roughly 35 Linde forklifts in operation including models from Linde Series 391, Series 393 and Series 394 whose load capacities range from 3,000 to 11,000 pounds.
“We purchased Linde hydrostatic drive forklifts because we wanted a cost-effective, reliable and rugged forklift,” said George Hardiman, maintenance manager at Liberty Casting. “We have not been disappointed.”
Known as the ultimate drive system, the hydrostatic transmission is superior to any other in achieving maximum lift truck performance. Due to the high heat and fine particles associated with foundries, they are considered harsh and demanding environments.
“We run these forklifts up to and sometimes past the design limits and they just keep on running,” added Hardiman. “Linde’s performance far exceeds all other forklifts that I have worked with over the years.”
Overall, these Linde truck series result in greater production efficiency, lower operator costs and lower labor costs. With them, you can handle more loads with fewer lifts and fewer people, which ultimately has a positive effect on your company’s bottom line.
“These trucks are priceless to us,” said Hardiman. “They are the heart and blood of the production floor.”
