Terex Fuchs scoops design award
Terex Fuchs has won a design award for the new Fuchs cabin on its material handling machines.
The new Fuchs cabin, which had competed with the new MHL390 F material handler, was awarded design award from iF International Forum Design at this year’s iF Design Awards.
The 58-member jury of experts awarded the quality seal in the ‘products’ category for the high-quality and innovative design of the fox cabin. For three days, the jury members critically examined the nominated products in terms of innovation and elaboration, functionality, aesthetics, responsibility and positioning.
The MHL390 F material handler with the fox cabin scored due to the sliding glass door, which allows the operator to safely and comfortably enter and exit the machine, the large-area roof window and the negatively inclined windshield, which offer an optimal view both upwards and downwards.
The MHL390 F is designed specifically for port handling applications. Equipped with a powerful and energy-efficient 300kW diesel engine, a maximum reach of 24.5m and the Fuchs service platform, the new handling machine is claimed to be particularly suitable for demanding applications.
In combination with the new fox cabin, which can be raised up to a height of 8.70m, the vehicle is a powerful workhorse for handling coal, grain, logs, scrap and big bags.
“We are very proud to receive the coveted iF Design Award,” said Dominik Vierkotten, managing director of Terex Fuchs. “With the MHL390 F in combination with the new Fuchs cabin, we have achieved a symbiosis of ergonomics, safety, functionality and design, which should help to significantly increase the efficiency of material handling. The new cabin design is not only due to the use of innovative technologies, a symbol for developments by Terex Fuchs, but also because of the distinctive branding with the fox silhouette.”
