The Jungheinrich® EKX series of turret trucks has been the global industry benchmark for years. Now with the introduction of new maintenance-free synchronous AC motors, the standard for higher performance has been raised – all while further reducing energy loss by as much as 10 percent. This allows the EKX to operate two full shifts on a single battery charge in most applications for more pallet moves per hour.
Since 2007, Jungheinrich systems trucks have used RFID transponder technology to track and control the behavior of turret trucks in the very narrow aisle. In addition, our exclusive Warehouse Navigation System uses this technology for fast, efficient and precise approach to pallet locations. Wasted travel, adjustments and back-tracking can be eliminated. The productivity gains are up to 25% in most applications. And even if requirements change in the future, the system remains flexible and can easily adapt to expansions and changing demands.
Our modular performance and assistance packages ensure the EKX is specifically optimized for your unique application. The new Floor Pro option provides hydraulic vibration dampening over uneven floors for improved efficiency and performance. The sideshiftPLUS option helps facilitate load handling and saves time, while allowing the EKX to work effectively in very narrow aisles.
The operator compartment offers plenty of space and storage for the operator, while a foldable seat and electrically adjustable control panel allow for comfortable standing or seated operation. The large front barrier window provides an excellent view of the forks allowing the operator to easily confirm proper load engagement.
