Why Choose Doosan Material Handling Equipment?

We get asked every now and again “Why Doosan?” For this list, let’s focus on the Doosan electric series of lifts, and the Top Ten reasons you should consider one.

  1. The new Doosan 7 series. It’s impressive, and the fingertip controls offer fast, instinctive control of the truck.
  2. The Guardian Safety System monitors truck functions and enhances workplace safety by monitoring functions like speed, turning radius and load height.
  3. Virtually maintenance-free oil-cooled disc brakes. The discs are literally submerged in oil, limiting wear and keeping them cool.
  4. An electro-magnetic parking brake prevents the forklift from rolling backwards on a ramp and allows the operator to leave the cage if necessary.
  5. The direction switch located on the hydraulic lift lever- meaning a safe, quick-change between forward and reverse– there’s no need to remove your hands from the steering wheel.
  6. The Curtis motor control system is preferred by operators everywhere.
  7. Doosan electric forklifts mean zero emissions, the lifts are perfectly safe for indoor and outdoor use without any considerations for ventilation.
  8. Less expensive maintenance and less need for it! No engine, transmission or radiator means no regular maintenance for the moving parts in those systems.
  9. Electric forklifts have a much tighter turning radius than gasoline or propane-powered units.
  10. Finally, owning a Doosan electric forklift means you get to work with the industry’s best team of mechanics and technicians.

For more than a century, Doosan has been an industry leader and can be found in every facet of the material handling and heavy construction fields.

MYTH:  OSHA requires forklift operators to carry a card certifying they are qualified to operate a forklift.

FACT:  Nope. OSHA does require that a certified operator be issued some type of proof of qualification, but nowhere does it specify that the operator must carry that proof with them like a driver’s license.

Doosan 7 Series Pneumatic Forklift

Forklift technology is what it is right?  How many advancements could possibly be made for a truck that picks stuff up and puts stuff down?

Doosan answered that question with authority when it released the 7 Series Pneumatic forklift.

With a capacity of up to 7,000 pounds at its heart it is, after all, a forklift- but it’s the extras that elevate the 7 Series.

We’ll start with the safety features.  The Guardian Stability System monitors the movement of the unit and automatically limits the speed based on turn radius and load height, and the degree of tilt with an elevated load.
