Finalist on Ergonomics
The NPP16-20N2 nomination in Ergonomics owes much to its manoeuvrability. This is a result of the combination of a compact design with a very user-friendly tiller arm which turns several degrees further than those of most of its competitors. Uniquely, when the operator moves into a situation where space is particularly tight, or where a particularly fragile load is to be handled, the performance mode can be instantly altered using a simple two-way switch. Choosing this safety/economy mode also reduces energy consumption by up to 20%. When appropriate, the truck can be switched back to full performance mode.
All controls are easy to reach and use in standard form, but there is also the option of large hydraulic levers which ensure precise lifting and lowering even if the operator is wearing gloves. The truck’s market-leading lift height of 135 mm is one of a suite of features which allow the operator to work with confidence in all conditions. The extra clearance avoids problems caused by steep ramps and loading docks, uneven ground and damaged pallets.
A shock-resistant, oil-filled transmission soaks up bumps that would damage traditional power pallets used in harsh applications. Moreover, the work can continue outdoors, and in all weather, thanks to effective protection of the chassis and electrical components against rain, splashing water, dirt and dust.
The new NPP16/18/20N2 models are completely fresh trucks designed with a careful blend of power and performance to give end users the best possible productivity at the lowest possible whole-life cost. Easy access to critical truck components allows for fast fault diagnosis and speedy maintenance, squeezing downtime to a minimum. The replacement of the U-shaped battery on previous models with a standard battery, meanwhile, allows interchangeability with other brands.
The new NPP 16-20N2 Power Pallet Trucks are just part of a wide array of top quality materials handling solutions offered by Cat Lift Trucks via an extensive worldwide network of dealers. The range comprises electric, LPG and diesel-powered counterbalanced trucks and a host of warehouse handling solutions including power pallet trucks, stackers, low and high level order pickers, standard and four-way reach trucks and tow trucks.
