Impact Handling, the UK’s sole distributor for Cat® Lift Trucks, has unveiled a suite of enhancements to its Cat® product line at IMHX 2016, including details of a new cold-store cab for reach trucks, and enhanced cold-store protection for its 48V electric forklift range.
The Nottingham-based materials handling equipment (MHE) provider Impact Handling displayed eight Cat trucks on its stand, including four forklifts: a diesel-engined DP25N and gas-powered GP18N, plus a pair of electric trucks – an EP18PNT and EP25CN.
Several other electric MHE machines: an NSP12N2 reach-stacker and a pair of power pallet trucks – an NPV20N2 and NPP20N2 – round out the Cat static display, showcasing Impact’s ability to tackle any task in materials handling.
Also on display at the stand was an award-winning example of Impact Handling Cat reach truck product line – an electric NR16N2. The Cat NR-N2 series clinched a Red Dot Design Award earlier this year, thanks to the company’s involvement of its customers in the design process.
The 41 distinguished Red Dot Product Design Award judges were impressed by the NR-N2 series’ enhanced features, including the trucks’ Responsive Drive System (RDS). The RDS allows the truck to ‘sense’ if the driver is a newcomer or a skilled professional with long experience, and can tell how he or she wants the truck to behave at any moment.
The result is that all travel and load handling movement is very smooth, safe and controlled, including starts and stops.
The company is also using the show to reveal details of the Tier 3b and Tier 4-interim diesel engines now available for its 4- to 16-tonne Cat diesel forklifts – engines developed to comply with the latest European emissions legislation.
Equipped with a passive diesel particulate filter, these new engines do not require downtime for regeneration purposes, or additional maintenance requirements.
