The new TX offers unique handling efficiency thanks to a number of best-in-class features. All aspects of the truck's movement speed - in lifting, tilting and driving - are automatically optimised based on load, lift height and tilt angle. It gives the driver peace of mind, and lets them focus on efficiency. Force feedback via the steering wheel further provides an intuitive driving experience. The ProVision concept unites to give a great view all around the truck, especially through the mast - which offers best-in-class visibility. Small details like the grip on the fingertip controls, industry-leading low entry/exit step and a fully automatic anti-rollback parking brake make the new TX an incredibly easy and efficient truck to drive.
Thanks to the ProVision concept that was integrated in the TX series' design, the trucks offer excellent visibility for the driver in all directions — to the sides, through the mast and even down towards the load itself.
This is achieved by slimmer side pillars, extra low dashboard, and especially the transparent front panel which gives the driver a clear view of the front corners of the load, so that the forks can be positioned quickly and easily. According to the test report compiled by Andersom Testing, an independent tester of industrial machines based in the Netherlands, this particular feature could soon "become the standard in the forklift world".
The expert jury of the International Forklift of the Year (IFOY) Award also emphasised the truck's visibility and transparent front panel when explaining why they named the TX3 the winner of the counterbalance category in 2019.
The TX3's combination of safe and smart design led to a Red Dot Award in 2018, in the Product Design category.
The Red Dot Award jury of around 40 industry experts were convinced by the TX3, mostly due to the good all-round visibility the truck offers thanks to its ProVision design. However, other criteria such as innovation, functionality and durability also played a big role in the TX3's win.
UniCarriers was honoured when the TX3 was named winner in the counterbalance truck category of the International Forklift of the Year (IFOY) Award 2019.
The truck had a strong field of competition, and was put through its paces in a series of challenging tests by the IFOY Award's expert jury. But in the end, it was enough to convince the judges, who praised the truck's ergonomic design and excellent visibility when explaining why they chose it as the winner.
