The TCM brand is reporting record sales growth from its UK dealers, largely on the strength of its range of European-built heavy duty counter-balance trucks which also come with the advantage of a three-year warranty cover.
Available exclusively through the TCM national dealership network, TCM's FD & FGE 3.5-5.0 range is a heavy duty, high precision workhorse that it says drives "quietly and kindly with imperceptibly low vibration". The range also boasts some technical and operating features which the manufacturer says puts it clearly among the frontrunners for safety and performance.
Advanced ergonomics and driver control features contribute to a very high specification of operational and personal health and safety. Its ultra-low vibration "floating" cab is balanced on a four-point shock absorber system that enhances driver comfort, reducing shocks, vibrations and noise.
As well as an efficient diesel option, an LPG clean technology engine is designed for maximum efficiency and low emissions – an impressive touch-of-a-button ECO mode delivers up to 18% extra fuel savings.
These tough-duty forklifts are ideal for loads between 1.5 and 3.2 tonnes, with an additional and equally comfortable heavy duty model which is designed for operations where load requirements are between 3.5 and 5.0 tonnes.
All the forklifts are modular built with TCM's unique shared components platform, limiting component variety and giving over 95% fix on first visit of all breakdowns.
