Speedlimiter For Forklift Trucks Released By Groeneveld 01/12/2007
Speed can kill and this equally applies to forklift trucks as it does to highway driving. That’s why the latest in speed limiters from top manufacturer Groeneveld is a welcome addition. Especially when you consider there are 8000 accidents a year involving forklift trucks. The Groeneveld speed limiter kit can be retrofitted for petrol, diesel or LP fuelled combustion engine trucks. The kit does not affect the acceleration or lifting capacity of the truck only lowering the maximum speed of a lift truck from 8km to a safer level.
The kit provides a speed sensor on the back of the truck which triggers the electronic control unit on the limiter to automatically reduce the throttle position if the truck is gathering speed. At the same time the accelorator is kept in place. This gives more control to the driver to focus on the task at hand. There are two versions, the 12V or 24V and hopefully it should go along way to reducing workplace accidents.
