Lift Truck distributor Briggs Equipment extends its product range

The UK’s national Cat® Lift Truck distributor and service provider, Briggs Equipment has extended its product range to include the new DP/GP 40-55N Cat Lift Truck range.

The robust DP/GP40-55N range has been designed to offer maximum durability, greater ergonomics and performance for the hardest applications. It also introduces a new 5.5 tonne capacity truck to accurately match customer application requirements.

"Product reliability and durability come as standard with Cat Lift Trucks which is even more critical for trucks in this key capacity range", says Tony Rooney, sales and marketing director at Briggs Equipment. "The 4.0-5.5 tonne trucks take productivity to maximum levels with industrial strength diesel and LPG engines. Using proven technology combined with innovative compact design increases truck performance, operator comfort and manoeuvrability in space restricted areas."

Superior ergonomic features include armrest and hydraulic manual control, full suspension seat (with swivel option) and handgrip in the back with a horn button (for jobs where the operator needs to drive backwards). These contribute to reducing back, arm and leg strain and fatigue on the driver while making safe operation even easier.

"Unscheduled maintenance time can be kept to a minimum with the standard long life LED lights on the whole range, the can-bus system and a new digital display. The display not only warns truck drivers if an unexpected fault occurs but also provides error codes to ensure an engineer brings the right parts with him, minimising down-time" continues Tony Rooney.

Briggs’ performance is as impressive as the new truck, delivering its industry leading 3-hour emergency call-out guaranteed, with over 350 local engineers on call, keeping a consistent high level of national service operating out of its service centre in Cannock.

The new DP/GP40-55N range brings power, reliability and a host of new options and design features including the high visibility overhead guard as part of the innovative new panel cabin. Ideally designed for a wide range of applications from ports to manufacturing Tony Rooney concludes, "It is good to see Cat Lift Trucks innovating and introducing major new products into the market. It shows the strength of the brand and the great confidence we all have for the rest of this year and beyond."
