Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC) will show farmers the renowned Doosan ‘brakes for life’ system at Nampo 2018. On show will be two Doosan forklifts, the D35C-5 forklift and a refurbished Doosan D25S-5.

The ‘brakes for life’ system, which made world headlines when it was introduced some years ago – and still one of the most important selling features on Doosan forklifts – is an oil-cooled disc brake system (OCB), which, being totally enclosed, eliminates all outside contamination by any abrasive or corrosive dust particles. The system significantly reduces operating costs and GLTC offers on it a 60-month, unlimited hours guarantee.

Goscor’s MD Darryl Shafto says that Doosan has always been a leader in terms of innovative fork lift technology and the ‘brakes for life’ system, is an excellent example of this.

The Doosan D35C-5 is part of the state-of-the-art and redesigned Doosan Pro-5 series which has given Doosan its global reputation for durable, dependable and operator-friendly forklifts. “This machine provides a well-balanced mix of technology, operator comfort refinements, performance efficiencies and advances in serviceability that help farmers increase their productivity while at the same time lowering their operating costs,” says Shafto.

He adds that GLTC and Doosan are focused on lowering the lifetime ownership costs of Doosan machines, which is helped by the unique features of the Pro-5 Series forklifts which include:

  • Optimised operator comfort
  • High-powered, fuel efficient, EPA compliant diesel, LPG and gasoline engines
  • Virtually maintenance free, oil-cooled disc brakes (Brakes for Life)
  • Power reversal transmission
  • Lift and tilt locking hydraulic control valve
  • OSS (Operator Sense and System)

The other Doosan on show will be the D25S-5, another Doosan Pro-5 series forklift, which has been completely refurbished by GRC. “Our refurbishment division, now under the experienced and expert management of Shaun Morton, has proven its ability to make previously used machines as good as new,” says Shaun. “In these challenging economic times it is sometimes difficult for farmers to buy new and we have therefore made the refurbishment route a viable alternative. We invite all farmers to take advantage of this offering and see for themselves at NAMPO the amazing value refurbished forklifts represent.”

Shafto says that Goscor Lift Truck Company is fully aware of the need to provide famers, who generally operate in very remote areas, the best possible service. “This is accomplished, firstly, by our countrywide footprint of branches and service centres, and secondly, by ensuring that service is the responsibility of the entire company from the drivers to the technicians and from the admin staff through to the managing director, each one of us, as an integrated team, understands that service is every individual’s responsibility.

Goscor Lift Truck Company’s reputation for excellent service has been recognized by several awards over the years including the Global Doosan Forklift Dealer of the Year 2015.

Another of Goscor’s iconic products, Crown, which has developed a worldwide reputation for award winning materials handling equipment product design as well as advanced engineering and technology, is represented at Nampo by two pallet jacks, which will be given away to two lucky ticket holders.
