With their market-leading efficiency, control and comfort, Cat NTR30-50N2 tow trucks boost both machine and operator effectiveness. They are ideally suited to work in the automotive sector and many other warehouse and industrial applications which require towing of loads.
You can choose between standard 3.0 tonne and heavy duty 5.0 tonne models. Each features an integrated single-unit motor and gear design which delivers the market’s highest efficiency. These Cat tow trucks benefit from clever designs and intelligent systems developed and proven in the energy-focused Cat NO-N2 low-level order picker range. The tow truck range is also customisable to suit your operation, with a range of optional features available.
These include an automatic coupling device which activates once truck and trailer are aligned correctly, instantly locking them together. Decoupling without leaving the truck can also be made possible, thanks to the optional manual release feature. Electric and hydraulic connectors can be specified which allow the use of active carts.
- Integrated single-unit motor and gear design adds reliability and delivers the best energy efficiency in the market.
- Simplified one-piece main frame, with welded steel construction, is durable and trouble-free.
- Simple and quick accessibility of systems and components for checks and servicing minimises downtime and bills.
- Inspection holes in chassis enable fast checking of gears, castor wheel and drive wheel screw.
- Easy removal of motor compartment shield on front of truck (secured by two screws) gives rapid access to main service point.
- Additional removable service hatch speeds up inspection and greasing of drive unit, as well as drive wheel changes.
- Display of service hours and battery status encourages correct maintenance (and optional user interface with colour display offers comprehensive information).
- PIN code access option prevents unauthorised use.
- Li-ion battery option increases efficiency and output, especially in intensive, multi-shift, 24/7 operations.
- Advanced steering functionality adapts rapidly to every change in operator steering behaviour and travel speed, for smooth, relaxed and safe driving.
- Unique intelligent curve control constantly adjusts steering sensitivity, cornering speed and angle limitation to maintain fluent motion, traction and balance from start to finish of turns.
- Steering control characteristics are modified when reversing, to allow for driver’s sideways position and one-handed operation.
- Latest advances in traction control ensure smooth, rapid acceleration and prevent wheelspin and related wear when driving on slippery surfaces or pulling heavy loads.
- Deceleration rate and stopping distance are easy to control and predict, for perfect positioning, and are programmable using TruckTool.
- ECO and PRO driving modes can be chosen according to the operator and application, and customised settings can be applied to meet more specific requirements.
- Walk-beside operation can be controlled via the steering wheel, with angles limited for safety, to improve view of trailer, to manoeuvre when coupling and uncoupling, and to make short movements (optional side-mounted controls are available).
- ‘Flying start’ function allows operator to begin acceleration from walk-beside position, before stepping onto the presence-detecting floor mat, for quicker access to drive.
- Spacious and unobstructed operator compartment, with non-slip mat, low step height and no tripping hazards, ensures quick walk-through access.
- Simple battery access, connection and locking mechanisms allow exchanges in seconds, for minimal downtime.
- Different coupling solutions available; standard manual or optional automatic trailer coupling which instantly locks the truck and trailer once they are in the right position, while an additional manual decoupling option enables release without leaving the operator compartment.
- Connector options enable use of trailers with hydraulic or electric functions for easier and faster handling.
- High-comfort, triple-suspension floor offers floating structure to dampen shocks and vibrations, sideways dampening to relax knees and ankles, and thick state-of-the-art matting to reduce microvibration.
- Angled footrest minimises strain for seated (see options) and tall operators.
- Optimised backrest shape and height give maximum walk-through access width at hip level, easy passage for operators carrying goods, and a secure leaning position during turns.
- Innovative steering wheel, with vibration damping, is effortless to operate with either hand and can be adjusted for height and angle to maximise comfort.
- Ergonomically shaped accelerator triggers and other controls, integrated into steering wheel, are easily reached by operator without releasing grip.
- Top-of-steering-wheel hand positioning choice enables comfortable and controlled reversing with reduced twisting of shoulders and wrists.
- Regenerative braking, optimised to eliminate swaying effect at full stop, combines with hill hold function and anti-lock brakes to aid smooth operation, confidence and safety in all conditions.
- Additional safety features (optional) include warning devices – driving light, strobe, blue spot or programmable alarm – as well as wide side mirrors for use when towed loads are wider than the truck.
