Incorporating several new features for increased performance, Vulcan C90 empty container handlers now offer smoother and responsive acceleration using dual pedal control thanks to the changeover to the hydrostatic drive and lift transmission. For driving speeds of up to 16 km/h, the engine revs at just 1500 RPM, which makes it extremely efficient.
The coupling, gearbox, differential and service brake are no longer necessary, which means that gear changing procedures are no more a worry to drivers while mechanical wearing parts are eliminated resulting in lower maintenance costs.
The new variable displacement piston pumps and hydrostatic drive with load sensing technology reduce fuel consumption (up to 20%) due to the more efficient use of the engine revs through the load sensing system. The variable displacement load sensing system also allows for much faster cycle times through increased lifting speeds.
The hydrostatic drive allows fast and smooth acceleration and deceleration, also improving cycle times while heavily reducing the wear on brakes. The machine is decelerated through hydraulic braking with braking mostly done in the hydraulic pumps and drive motors.
With the mast mounted on top of the drive axle and not in front of it, the user can reduce the lost load distance, enabling the machine to have the same lifting capacity but with a lighter footprint. The extremely wide reversed mast design has a fixed inner channel with the lift channel and carriage mounting externally from there, allowing the load ‘twist’ to be absorbed over a larger area and causing less stress on the machine.
Additionally, the new DBS 10 double box spreader enables a lifting capacity of 10T with twin 40’ containers. Large vision windows allow the operator to see the twist lock pockets with ease.
