CAT® - Electric lift trucks
Electric lift trucks are a quiet, environmentally friendly means of handling a wide range of unit loads including pallets, pallet boxes and stillages.
Cat® - Electric lift trucks are designed and manufactured in Finland.
Designed primarily for use indoors, electric forklifts like the Cat® Lift Trucks EP16-20(C)PN range are the perfect choice for many handling operations, from lifting goods in and out of racking to moving goods at ground level around a site.
Being both quick and manoeuvrable (especially 3 wheel trucks such as the Cat Lift Trucks EP10-15KRT PAC and EP16-20(C)PNT, which have some very tight turning circles), electric trucks are often used in warehousing applications, where their typical maximum lift height of 5-6m makes them well suited to most standard wide aisle racking operations. Electric forklifts are often also found in production environments, bringing supplies or components to a production line or clearing waste packaging or other production by-products away.
Electric trucks can additionally be used to load or unload heavy goods vehicles, either from the rear of the vehicle (via a raised loading dock) or from the side (from ground level).
