The Godrej Group's Material Handling division has launched the new Pro Series Reach Truck with capacities ranging from 1.4 to 2 tonnes.

Battery changing rollers with battery changing trolley are also available to facilitate faster and safer battery change-over.

The new Pro Series Reach Truck’s fingertip control functions place all machine controls within the operator’s reach. The Smart Curve Speed Control technology detects turns and reduces speed by as much as 30 percent, which the company says makes the truck stable and safe while navigating tight corners. It’s six-way adjustable suspension seat makes it comfortable for long hours of operation. A display with fault code indication continuously provides vital information to the operator.
