Uncompromising strength, speed and durability are promised by the latest offering from Cat® Lift Trucks in the 6.0 to 10.0 tonne diesel counterbalance forklift trucks category.
Power and speed
Driven by one the highest-powered engines in its class, the Cat® DP60-100N3 diesel forklift is amongst the industry’s fastest and most efficient machines. Its 3.8 litre common rail diesel power unit generates rapid performance, even when handling massive loads.
Fast lift speeds, together with an automatic two-speed powershift transmission that gives controlled yet powerful acceleration, ensure maximum productivity.
Driver comfort and ergonomics
Despite its high power and rugged construction, this heavy-duty forklift truck is comfortable and enjoyable to drive. Cushioning materials between the engine and frame ensure that minimal vibration is transmitted to the driver’s seat. The seat is a deluxe Grammer product, whose ergonomic shape and back cushion provide optimal comfort and support.
The extremely rigid mast’s roller layout and narrow channels have been thoughtfully designed, along with the high-visibility overhead guard, to maximise forward and upward view. An optional cabin shelters the forklift drivers from extreme temperatures and wet conditions, without obscuring their vision.
All controls on this diesel forklift are easy and intuitive to operate. Options include an adjustable armrest, combining anatomical support with free movement and perfect hand positioning. It features spring-force-optimised fingertip hydraulic levers.
Durability and economy
The engine’s dependability of the heavy-duty forklift combines with tough forklift truck components, which resist damage and wear, to help minimise repair and service bills. Further time and cost savings are made through quick and easy component access for routine checks and maintenance. For example, the boltless floorboards can be removed easily, without tools, to reach key areas.
With these features and qualities, it is simple and inexpensive to keep the diesel forklift in sound working condition, reduce downtime and lower the total cost of ownership. In addition, money is saved every day on fuel thanks to the engine’s high efficiency.
Cat DP60-100N3 heavy-duty forklifts are built for demanding applications such as stevedoring, empty container handling, moving industrial machinery and equipment, and dealing with heavy goods in distribution centres. They are ideal for use with the heaviest of materials, such as metal, concrete, stone, bricks, clay, glass and lumber.
Capacities of 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and 10.0 tonnes are available, and each diesel forklift model can be customised with a wide range of optional features to meet the user’s specific needs.
