by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas group, the manufacturer and provider of Cat lift trucks across North, Central and South America, has launched the Cat DP60HP-DP100CP forklift series.

The 13,000-22,000 lb. capacity internal combustion (IC) pneumatic tire lift trucks are built for the metal industry, lumber yards, industrial machinery and distribution centres.

“Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas is committed to developing the next generation of lift truck solutions for our customers, which is why we are excited to introduce our latest tough and reliable Cat internal combustion lift truck series,” said Eric Gabriel, vice president, North America Dealer Sales at Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas.

“We’re once again raising the bar by combining efficient, high-performance engines with comfort and safety features, ultimately to help our customers improve their productivity and lower their total cost of ownership.”

The truck is powered by a Kubota V3800 engine, an efficient diesel. This turbocharged, electronically controlled engine produces very low emissions.

This lift truck has a four-cylinder common rail turbo diesel EPA Tier 4 engine that produces high power at all times, even in hard-wearing applications.

The heavy duty clear-view mast contributes to faster cycle times. Simplified design with fewer service points for quicker, simpler maintenance.

The large meter panel features a warning system that alerts the operator to help protect the machine’s critical components.

The Cat lift truck’s Operator Presence System includes a seat-actuated power interrupt with mast-lock, automatically preventing lift and tilt operations if the operator leaves the seat.

A spacious and comfortable operator compartment suitable for a wide range of operator sizes, while the ergonomic layout helps to reduce fatigue throughout long shifts for increased productivity.

The low pedal angles allow for easy movement between the gas and brake pedals.
