Backed by the industry’s best standard, limited warranty, UniCarriers Americas (UCA) has announced the launch of its new PD6 Series (IC) Pneumatic Tire Forklifts. 

The PD6 next-generation Platinum Series replaces the outgoing G06 Series and is UCA’s most heavy-duty pneumatic tire lift truck with a 13,000-22,000-lb. capacity range.

The new series offers an extended model lineup, increasing from three to six models, to cater to bigger market segments. The lineup includes the addition of 6T low-power and high-power offerings and a 7T low-power model. Under the hood is a highly-efficient Kubota v3800 Tier 4/CARB compliant diesel engine with improved fuel consumption.

A large LCD panel replaces the G06’s mechanical screen, improving operator feedback. New standard features include wet disc brakes for reduced cost of ownership, a dual element air cleaner and a rear-view mirror. All models feature a hydraulic oil cooler that’s beneficial when using big attachments or employing heavy-duty applications.

In addition, the PD6 Series comes equipped with advantages such as a seat-actuated operator presence system with seatbelt and parking brake warnings and a 5-piece overhead guard that cuts replacement time by 75 percent. All standard features enhance operator safety and productivity, ensuring maximum forklift uptime.  

New optional features include:

  • 5-spool valve for increased functionality (Not available on FD100-4 model)
  • Increased tire selection
  • LED safety line light
  • High-capacity AC alternator 12V x 115 amp for increased uptime
  • LED lights for energy efficiency
  • Front and rear access-assisted handgrip
  • Pre-cleaner

The PD6 Series launches early March.
