Cat® Lift Trucks has improved its already popular 2.0 to 3.5 tonne diesel counterbalance forklift trucks with the introduction of an advanced Stage V engine.

Now designated as the DP20-35N3 range, these diesel forklift trucks benefit from the latest electronically controlled engine and exhaust gas technology. The results include high performance and fuel economy, as well as low emissions which comply fully with stringent EU regulations.

Reduced total cost of ownership

The new engine’s built-in warning system and easy maintenance procedures add to the protection features and rugged, durable construction that make Cat® diesel forklifts and LPG counterbalance forklift trucks so economical to own.

Both the DP20-35N3 diesel forklifts and the closely related GP15-35(C)N LPG range benefit from long-life components, long service intervals and a highly robust chassis. They are also constructed with a full belly guard which protects the engine compartment from dust, dirt and water.

A clear LCD display on all these diesel and LPG counterbalance forklift truck models provides extensive information on their operation and maintenance state, encourages effective servicing, and helps prevent unplanned downtime. On the diesel forklift versions, its indications include soot level.

Increased productivity and comfort

Whether powered by the new Stage V diesel engine or the current LPG unit, with its efficient electronic management system and three-way catalytic converter, the forklift trucks deliver consistently high productivity. Outstanding traction on sloping or slippery surfaces combines with easy operation and low noise levels to give a satisfying and comfortable driving experience. For extra comfort, all models now feature a deluxe Grammer seat, while a deluxe cabin has been added to the list of options.

There are four diesel forklifts and seven LPG counterbalance forklift truck models to choose from, offering a variety of load capacities, frame types, mast designs and additional options. Based on these, the perfect configuration can be specified for each industrial application.
