HOUSTON (May 15, 2014) – Cat® Lift Trucks, a provider of lift trucks known for quality, reliability and customer service, has introduced the new series of 10,000 – 15,000 kg. capacity diesel pneumatic tire lift trucks for Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Equipped with a high-performance 6D16 7.5L engine, the DP100NM – DP150NM series offers reliable performance to handle heavy-duty applications such as lumber, steel, pipe, concrete and fabricated metals.
“The Cat DP100NM – DP150NM models offer a high level of productivity that makes this lift truck a valued asset to our customers,” said Lucas Dumdie, product line manager at Cat Lift Trucks. “This pneumatic tire lift truck series is designed to deliver the exceptional power, performance and reliability that customers need to tackle their toughest material handling applications.”
The new lift truck series provides customers with numerous features and benefits, including:
• High-Performance and Efficient Engine. The DP100NM – DP150NM lift truck series features a 6D16 7.5L turbo, in-line six-cylinder diesel engine with a turbocharger. This engine provides the power needed for rough, outdoor applications, while also increasing operator productivity.
• Powerful Transmission. The lift truck’s drivetrain is equipped with an automatic transmission that directly converts the power of the engine into torque, resulting in rapid response and increased acceleration. These lift trucks often operate on rugged terrain, making the powerful transmission vital for increased performance and efficiency.
• Greater Uptime, Ease-of-Service. To further simplify routine service, the forklifts feature an easy-to-access engine and 500-hour service intervals for less downtime and reduced preventative maintenance costs. The series is also backed by the local Cat lift truck dealer network and its qualified technicians, who are trained to service every aspect of the forklift.
• Superior Operator Comfort. Operator comfort and control is important when handling heavy loads. This series features a three-section hydraulic control valve with seat side levers and a full-suspension seat that accommodates operators of all sizes. The series also includes a wide-range of features to reduce noise and vibration such as rubber mounted components, helical transmission gears, closed wheel wells and a fully-insulated engine hood.
