Cat® 6.0 to 10.0 tonne diesel forklift: powerful, durable… and comfortable

Uncompromising strength, speed and durability are promised by the latest offering from Cat® Lift Trucks in the 6.0 to 10.0 tonne diesel counterbalance category.

Power and speed

Driven by one the highest-powered engines in its class, the Cat® DP60-100N3 is amongst the
industry’s fastest and most efficient machines. Its 3.8 litre common rail diesel power unit generates rapid performance, even when handling massive loads.

Fast lift speeds, together with an automatic two-speed powershift transmission that gives controlled yet powerful acceleration, ensure maximum productivity.

Driver comfort and ergonomics

Despite its high power and rugged construction, this truck is comfortable and enjoyable to drive. Cushioning materials between the engine and frame ensure that minimal vibration is transmitted to the driver’s seat. The seat is a deluxe Grammer product, whose ergonomic shape and back cushion provide optimal comfort and support.

The extremely rigid mast’s roller layout and narrow channels have been thoughtfully designed,
along with the high-visibility overhead guard, to maximise forward and upward view. An optional cabin shelters drivers from extreme temperatures and wet conditions, without obscuring their vision.

All controls are easy and intuitive to operate. Options include an adjustable armrest, combining
anatomical support with free movement and perfect hand positioning. It features spring-forceoptimised fingertip hydraulic levers.

Durability and economy

The engine’s dependability combines with tough truck components, which resist damage and wear, to help minimise repair and service bills. Further time and cost savings are made through quick and easy component access for routine checks and maintenance. For example, the boltless floorboards can be removed easily, without tools, to reach key areas.

With these features and qualities, it is simple and inexpensive to keep the truck in sound working condition, reduce downtime and lower the total cost of ownership. In addition, money is saved every day on fuel thanks to the engine’s high efficiency.

Heavy duties

Cat DP60-100N3 trucks are built for demanding applications such as stevedoring, empty container handling, moving industrial machinery and equipment, and dealing with heavy goods in distribution centres. They are ideal for use with the heaviest of materials, such as metal, concrete, stone, bricks, clay, glass, and lumber.

Capacities of 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and 10.0 tonnes are available, and each model can be customised with a wide range of optional features to meet the user’s specific needs.
