Assisted, of course, by our experts. Customer and user requirements have always been a priority for Fuchs®. Now we’ve taken this one step further. Each machine can now be tailored to further incorporate and to adapt a number of individual features so that it is fully suited to the user’s requirements. The experienced and resourceful designers and experts within Fuchs® are happy to work closely with the customer towards finding the ideal configuration, which is then delivered to exacting and proven quality standards.
We rise to meet your expectations.
Our standard models are already optimised, but you can fine-tune them further to suit your requirements.
Our service team will be happy to advise you and tell you about the many other special features we have on offer.
If you are planning to use your material handling machine at a fixed location, we recommend opting for a stationary design on a steel or concrete foundation. The bolting that anchors these machines enables them to handle much larger loads than their mobile counterparts. In addition, choosing a stationary machine eliminates the costs involved in having an undercarriage. It is also worth mentioning that one of the many options that the Application Center offers when modifying stationary machines is equipping them with a zero-emission electric motor.
While mobile material handling machines equipped with tires are limited to working on asphalt and paved surfaces, machines with crawler undercarriages are able to showcase their advantages on inadequately paved and yielding surfaces. This is the case at many wharfage facilities, where port operators are quick to show their preference for the sturdy and powerful crawler machines built by Fuchs®. In addition, a multitude of options is available for these machines depending on the ground and application involved: Mechanical and hydraulic track adjustment systems, XL-trac undercarriages for particularly tall pylons, and shoes optimized for each type of surface, among many other features, ensure that virtually no request or requirement will go unsatisfied with these mobile material handling machines.
Our heavy-duty mobile machines demonstrate just how perfectly the components that make up the Fuchs® modular system match each other. These machines are equipped with the undercarriage from the next larger model range, which is assembled with the use of an adapter ring. This makes it possible to optimize the machines’ grab handling characteristics and significantly increase their stability. The advantage of using this combination of components from two different model series? Additional costs for the modification remain low, and the fast procurement of spare parts is guaranteed at all times.
Pylons can be combined with standard undercarriages, heavy-duty machines, and crawler undercarriages as per our customers’ requests. They provide a better line of sight into shredders and shears, minimize the risk of collisions in awkward spaces by giving operators a better view of their surroundings, make it possible to pile up higher stockpiles, and improve a machine’s ability to load and unload ships with tall sides.
Electric drives are today’s forward-looking trend – not only in cars, but also in mobile material handling machines. This is especially the case with indoor applications, stationary machines, and rail undercarriage machines, in which powerful zero- emission electric drives that are extremely easy to maintain have very tangible advantages. Some of these include low operating and servicing costs, low noise emissions and heat build-up, and the extensive use of standard components from our range of diesel engine models, which ensures that spare parts will be widely available.
Fuchs® offers customised material handlers without compromising on economic viability. This is possible thanks to our cleverly designed Modular System, which affords exceptional versatility using mainly standardised parts and components.
