The Linde Series 346 is exactly what customers have to come to expect from Linde products. This truck raises the standards for comfort, efficiency, economy of operation and durability. Offered in eight different models, the Linde 346 has a lift capacity ranging from 3,500 to 4,000 lbs. This truck can fit well in a multitude of applications, including general warehousing, manufacturing and beverage.
The ergonomics on the Linde 346 are phenomenal. Linde engineers painstakingly developed the truck around the operator to help ensure the most stress-free environment as possible. All areas where operator and machine meet were carefully designed. Equipped with an adjustable armrest, a vibration-isolating suspension seat and generous amounts of legroom, the 346 can make any size operator feel comfortable. With all of these ergonomic features, driver fatigue becomes less of a problem in your workplace.
At the end of the day, safety is the most important feature on any truck whether you’re the manufacturer or the operator and the Linde 346 doesn’t fall behind anyone when it comes to the safety of the operator and the people around the truck. A key element of forklift safety is visibility of the load through the mast. Linde has installed a unique mast design to optimize the view. This was achieved by replacing chains with cylinders in the main lift stages. This allows for a drastically wider field of vision. The truck also has standard safety features including two spotlights, an overhead guard and an emergency power cut-off.
Becoming more efficient is everyone’s end goal and depending on your working environment the 346 can help with that. This truck features the new Linde drive axle, which is an assembly that includes drive motors, hydraulic motor, reduction gears, brake system and power modules. This system has eliminated long power cables, which is one of the major sources of excessive energy consumption. Linde has also made energy visible, meaning the new Linde electric trucks have a unique energy management system, including an advanced battery state of charge indicator. This measures the current and available voltage to provide a continuous update of the battery’s overall condition.
All machines require maintenance, but the Linde series 346 has maintenance intervals of 1000 hours. This truck has many design features that allow for this high maintenance interval. Some of these design features include automatic deceleration, maintenance-free brake system and electronic diagnostics. This truck is also equipped with an AC system for all motors which operates without brushes and is completely sealed extending component life.
