VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks – Powerful industrial transporters for efficient continuous use in outdoor areas

VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks are perfectly suited for transporting loads in outside areas. Fuel efficient diesel en-
gines give the vehicles a high driving range and thus enable an almost uninterrupted continuous operation. If the operating profile should call for occational use inside closed buildings, it is also possible to equip the vehicles with modern diesel particle filter systems. T
hese systems filter approximately 98% of the diesel particles in the vehicle’s exhaust.

In order to provide the appropriate vehicle for a large range of requirements, VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks are offered in various performance categories ranging from 2.000 to 5.000 kg payload. For larger payloads or for special appli-
cations, we also take pleasure in offering you special vehicles customized to suit your needs.

First choice in industrial transporters

Intralogistics in industrial corporations are characterized by the great diversity of applications and requirements. Given this, VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks are appropriate as industrial transporters, particularly due to the large range of optional accessories that enable the optimal configuration of the vehicles.

It is possible, for instance, to select between differently dimensioned load platforms, which also include options for loading pipes, rods and other long material. Depending on the application, there are a selection of different side panel options. Moisture-sensitive cargo can be protected from climatic conditions with a tarpaulin structure. A loading crane and a hydraulic liftgate simplify the loading procedure when required. And an optional diesel particle filter even enables driving inside factory buildings.

In addition to the multitude of optional accessories, the sturdy construction of the vehicles is particularly advantageous and is proven in rough industrial applications. Due to a stable vehicle frame construction and the use of high-quality components, the vehicles durably withstand even the toughest burdens.

Ideal for baggage handling on regional airports

VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks are also ideal for baggage handling on airports. Particularly on regional airports, where there are mostly only smaller aircraft with comparatively few passengers, the spacious load platform of the vehicle is, in most cases, entirely sufficient for the transport of pieces of luggage. Only rarely are more than one or two baggage trailers required here. Heavy tow tractors weighing three or four tons, which are the status quo at larger airports, are therefore not required for regional air traffic.

In addition, the baggage handling areas at smaller airports are usually characterized by an open construction, so that driving into them with a combustion engine driven vehicle is an unproblematic option. Consequently, diesel vehicles can play off their particular strengths here: In comparison to purely electrically driven vehicles, they are particularly characterized by a practically unlimited driving range and the absence of complex battery management; and in comparison to technologically sophisticated hybrid vehicles, the distinctly lower initial cost presents a particularly significant benefit.

Due to these advantages, today VOLK Diesel Platform Trucks are in operation on a multitude of regional airports – for instance on the airports in Innsbruck, Saarbrücken and Friedrichshafen.
