Characterised by its excellent versatility and low operating costs, the new Jungheinrich EZS C40 tow tractor is designed to tow trailers up a maximum weight of 4,000 kilogrammes. The transport volume can be varied at will by coupling the number of trailers actually required for the particular operation. The tow tractor is based on Jungheinrich's EZS 350 XL. Apart from super-elastic tyres and the associated adaptation of the drive chamber, a key difference compared with the basic tractor involves the increased ground clearance to one hundred millimetres. The tow tractor is fitted with a super-elastic drive wheel. This means the tow tractor can be safely manoeuvred on smooth industrial flooring or traverse minor irregularities, such as encountered when operating in outdoor areas. The super-elastic tyres on the drive wheel provide the necessary traction. At the same time the tread absorbs the impact of irregularities. The driver feels comfortable and safe on the tow tractor, even when driving over different surfaces. Trailer coupling and uncoupling is safe and comfortable, too. Like all other tow tractors from the Jungheinrich portfolio, the coupling is easily accessed and can be seen from any angle. A semi-automatic remote coupling/decoupling option is available and means the driver can decouple from or couple trailers to the tow tractor without having to dismount from the stand-on platform.
