Diesel pneumatic tire lift trucks
The DP40N1-DP55N1 Series features a new diesel engine that meets energy efficiency standards and has a maintenance-free emissions system
The DP40N1-DP55N1 Series features a new diesel engine that provides a 21.6% increase in fuel efficiency in addition to increased performance, reduced emissions levels and a lower total cost of ownership. These new diesel lift trucks also offer customers a range of features and benefits, including increased energy efficiency and performance, maintenance-free emissions system, and Tier 4 final compliance. To meet these regulations, advanced technologies have been incorporated into the new Perkins 845F engines in the DP40N1-DP55N1 Series to lower the amount of Particulate Matter or “soot” that is released into the environment.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
