The RTF multi directional reach truck is ideal when handling both long loads and standard pallets with a lifting height of up to 9,7 meters. The truck can be driven in all directions with precision and the aisle width can be cut to 2.3–3 meters. With superior acceleration, a top speed of 13 kph and high battery capacity, the truck can be driven intensively with maximum efficiency.
The RTF features advanced ergonomics, like TCM unique mini steering wheel and adjustable 18° tilting seat – all results of independent research into the effects of repetitive strain injury (RSI). Excellent all-round visibility according to the ProVision concept with angled bars in the overhead guard, clear view mast and a high seating position, together with a wide range of optional equipment, make the operator even more productive. This is a winner for any company that cares about its operators, economy and maximum efficiency.
Everything with the TCM reach truck – from ergonomics to performance – is about productivity. High-precision mast design with soft stop technology and a fully damped reach system contribute to supreme stability in all conditions. Mast tilt and intuitive lift controls further facilitate loading and stacking at all heights. The Hands-free direction control uses the accelerator for change of travel direction allowing the operator to use the right hand for operating up to three hydraulic functions simultaneously. The powerful 48V AC motor provides excellent performance – top speed is 12.5 km/h. To maximise productivity and safety, TCM's Truck Computer ATC3, with personal PIN code for individual performance settings, allows the reach truck to suit each operator's driving skills.
TCM reach truck series is designed with focus on long service intervals and excellent serviceability. The unique TCM Truck Computer (ATC3) with CAN Bus technology allows the service engineer to easily and quickly diagnose and service the truck, thus keeping uptime to a maximum. All TCM trucks are designed according to TCM's unique Modular Design Concept which improves quality and limits the number of parts used. Our mobile service engineers therefore only have to carry a limited number of spare parts which contributes to providing a First Time Fix Rate over 95%, resulting in a market leading uptime.
The TCM reach truck range is all about you and your operations. Everything from design, technology and performance, to service and financing has been created to fulfil the needs and wants of the world's most demanding truck users in the most personal way. All because we know that technology designed around human needs makes people more productive and happy at work. And to make your TCM forklift even more you, there’s a wide range of specially designed options and accessories.
The TCM S3 - Stability Support System provides technology which ensures an unmatched industry-leading safety level. To maintain driving stability in a wide range of situations, the S3 technology continuously measure speed, steering, commands, mast movement and lift height of the truck. The new feature DCC - Dynamic Cornering Control, modifies the relationship between the speed of the truck and the operator´s steering wheel movements allowing a higher level of cornering speed, when handling loads at high levels, the Optimised Performance Control adapts the tilt and reach speed to maximise stability and safety. The innovative feature LAS – Level Assistance System is moving intuitive material handling to a new level. The operator needs only to release the lift lever slightly and the forks will stop automatically and with full precision at the right level. The ASR – Active Spin Reduction, improves safety especially when driving on surface with low friction and reduce drive wheel wear for additional cost savings
The spacious cabin is entirely designed around the operator. The unique mini steering wheel and floating armrest allow effortless manoeuvring during long shifts with a minimum strain on arm, neck and shoulders. The seat and the armrests are easily adjusted to the individual operator – up to seven different parameters can be set. The Pro Vision mast design further enhances visibility and ergonomics when handling high loads. The separate footstep and a specially designed instep handle make it easy to get in and out of the truck. An ergonomic comparative evaluation study on reach trucks from three different manufacturers showed that TCM offered the most ergonomic working postures, resulting in less shoulder and neck strain.
