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.
As well as the Red Dot Award, the TX3 is also in the running to named Counterbalance Truck of the Year in the International Forklift of the Year (IFOY) Awards.
The TX3 has made it through the first round of tests, with a group of expert industry judges gathering to put the truck to the test. They named it as one of the 'Best of Intralogistics', along with other entrants - but the winner of the main IFOY award will be revealed on 25 April in a ceremony in Vienna, Austria.
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.
