Rotating-cabin truck

March 1, 2007




The 180-degree rotating cabin of Jungheinrich’s lift truck eliminates obstructed views and lengthy reverse travel by allowing the operator to rotate the cabin to face the direction of travel. The truck can transport high, stacked pallets, load or unload trucks from one side and move large containers. It handles loads up to 6,600 lbs. Operators can rotate the cabin up to 90-degrees while the truck is in motion. For short- and medium-distance travel, the truck offers adequate visibility and comfort. For traveling long distances, the cabin can be rotated the full 180-degrees, but this must be done while the truck is stationary. A memory system allows operators to preset the angles of choice. All hydraulic functions and the travel direction switch are combined in a joystick.
