With the RX 70-60/80 and the RX 70-40/50 the company presents the successor models for the popular R 70 series. The philosophy of these new trucks with load capacities of 4 to 8 tonnes is to combine power, precision, ergonomics and safety with a compact design for perfect turnover performance.
These new STILL power packs with their unique combination of powerful industrial engines and proven diesel-electric drive technology allow high work speeds at low fuel consumption levels. The exact and sensitive control of the drive and the hydraulic system, in combination with five adjustable drive programmes makes efficient use of the available power. In each of the drive programmes the top speed, the acceleration and the deceleration grades can be individually set. This 'glues' the truck to the foot of the driver. The driver can handle the truck alone with the accelerator pedal, the service brake is almost not needed. When the driver takes the foot off the accelerator pedal the truck brakes electrically without any wear. The automatic stop also prevents the truck from rolling off accidentally on bumpy surfaces or when it stops on slopes. As with all of the electric and IC trucks from the STILL family, the driving characteristics of the 'big boys' are smooth, sensitive and precise. This allows drivers to work accurately and efficiently.
