The four-wheel R 07 and R 08 electric tractor and platform trucks are versatile, economical transport aids for tow trailers up to a total weight of 25 tonnes (R 07) and for transporting loads of up to two tonnes (R 08). The robust tractors are particularly impressive when at use in production supply in the steel and automotive industry, luggage transit at airports and train stations, and indoor and outdoor material handling as a tugger train. Due to their great adaptability the trucks can also be used in many other industries. 

By coupling several trailers the transport volume can be adjusted to suit any application, while the maintenancefree 80-volt three-phase motor ensures powerful acceleration and excellent gradeability at a top speed of up to 25 km/h. The compact tractor quickly, safely and efficiently covers medium and long distances, with its spacious, car-like all-weather cab offering the driver the ultimate in comfort. The ergonomically arranged control elements guarantee comfortable, back-friendly driving, while large windows offer excellent all-round visibility, all of which comes together to allow for safe, precise operation with high productivity. Three independent braking systems including an electric parking brake ensure that the trucks can transport even the heaviest loads easily and safely.

Driver assistance systems and functions

Safety Assist

Shock detection (with or without FleetManager 4.x)

Where shock detection is used without FleetManager, an accelerometer detects mechanical shock events indicative of improper use. Once shocks have been detected, the truck is set to creep speed. The supervisor can turn the speed restriction back off again by entering the 'Fleet manager PIN' in the Easy Control Display.

As no additional components are required, this is a cost-effective option for preventing damage to the truck and goods. Where shock detection is used with FleetManager, should vibrations exceed a certain level, the load will be registered as unusual and this information will be shared with the fleet manager.

As well as shocks, these notifications can also include information about the speed of travel, the time, the truck and the driver.

Access authorisation (with Fleet Manager 4.x)

Access control perfectly integrated into the truck with different types of access authorisation for one or more trucks: with FleetManager 4.x you are free to choose the type of access authorisation for one or more trucks: chip, FleetManager card, your personal plant ID card or a PIN.

Thanks to the smart auto-logout function, the trucks are automatically deactivated after a freely selectable period of time – this also increases safety.

STILL SafetyLight 4plus

The visual warning system for fewer accidents

The blue warning light, STILL SafetyLight 4plus, significantly increases work safety in areas which are confusing or full of bends. The blue light spots are projected approx. 5 m in front of and behind the truck and warn people about the approaching truck to prevent impending collisions.

Driver profile via FleetManager

Who can use which forklift truck for which area of application? How fast may a certain driver travel in the industrial truck?

The solution: our smart driver profiles in FleetManager 4.x. This web-based application allows the features of the truck to be adapted to the operator’s requirements, such as a reduction in travel, lifting or tilting speed or automatic activation of the lights.
