The ergonomic cabin design offers a clean dash with comfortable steering and lever positioning. Operators can easily reach the dash buttons which improves comfort and helps to reduce operator fatigue.
The uncluttered dash design as well as the clear view mast provides great operator visibility of the forks. This makes driving easier and stress-free for the operator.
The spacious cabin offers plenty of leg room for the operator which can help reduce leg cramps when operating over extended periods.
Full Suspension Seat
The three-wheel electric forklift comes standard with Cat’s ergonomic full suspension vinyl seat. This provides optimal comfort and helps maintain driving posture over extended periods of operation.
Adjustable Steering Column
Operators can easily adjust the steering column to suit their ideal driving position by lifting the side lever. This helps improve body posture and improves overall comfort while driving.
Easy to Read Display
The vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) is perfectly positioned on the dash for easy access to important information about the forklift. This includes travel speed, battery status, current time and hours. Furthermore, the VFD display makes it easy to read this information even under direct sunlight or in bright conditions.
Dependable Forklift Brakes
The wet disc brake system, which is both dust and water resistant, offers powerful and consistent braking in demanding situations. Maintenance is also easy with only oil replacement required during routine service intervals.
Productivity & Performance
AC Power Control System
The intelligent and advanced AC power system delivers smooth and efficient power to both the traction and hydraulic systems. The electric forklifts high capacity motors also enable powerful acceleration especially up slopes and ramps.
Advanced Energy Conservation and Regeneration
The forklifts AC system also offers both vital energy conservation and regeneration. It works by channelling power back into the battery when braking, plugging or decelerating.
Precise Inching Control
The electric forklifts advanced electronics allows the operator to perform very precise inching and control. This improves overall workflow and performance which helps to increase operator productivity.
The load indicator is a standard feature of the EP-TCB three-wheel electric forklift. The load indicator is displayed on the dash display screen which allows the operator to estimate the weight of the load. It also provides an overload warning alarm to alert the operator.
Smart Pitching Control
The pitching control system acts as a shock absorber for the load and forklift. It works by protecting reducing the amount of vibration and mast sway when the forklift travels over uneven surfaces or bumps.
Adjustable Power Settings
Operators can adjust the power settings to suit their experience and operating conditions. They can freely choose between eight driving modes, from 2km/h to 12 km/h, as well as acceleration modes. This includes the energy saving Economy setting, normal travel setting, up to the high performing Power setting.
Automatic Power Off
After 15 minutes in a standby mode the forklift will automatically shut down to conserve battery power and unnecessary drainage.
IPX4 Waterproof Rating
The IXP4 waterproofing allows the forklift to be safely operated outdoors even in the rain. Operators can also hose down the forklift if minor cleaning is required.
The large integrated step and large handgrips ensures stepping in and out both safe and easy.
Textured floor mats also help to prevent slipping when stepping on and off the forklift. This safety feature is also useful when working in wet conditions.
Mast and Travel Interlock
The advanced mast and travel interlock system helps to protect the operator if they leave the seat. It works by disengaging the drive and mast functions when the operator’s presence is not detected on the seat.
Neutral Safety System
This helps prevent accidental movement of the forklift when the switch is turned on. If the gears are not in a neutral position the mast and travel interlock will be engaged.
The rear hand grab allows operators to comfortably position their hand when driving in reverse. An integrates horn button also allows operators to easily alert pedestrians and other operators when approaching.
Servicing & Maintenance
Intelligent Control System
The forklifts control system effectively manages the truck functions and provides self-diagnosis when the ignition is switched on. This allows for easy troubleshooting and problem pinpointing of vital components such as the battery and motors. Furthermore, quick identification and location means these components can be easily accessed with simple tools. This helps to effectively reduce servicing and maintenance time.
With an excellent IPX4 waterproofing rating, the Cat three-wheel electric forklifts can operate outside in the rain. Additionally, the special waterproofing means the forklift can withstand splashing from any angle, including underneath.
Easy Accessibility to Engine
The forklift rear hinged door allows easy access to the engine without the need of any specialty tools, allowing for easy maintenance and servicing.
An optional laser pointer can be attached to the carriage to improve operator efficiency. This laser allows operators to easily line up the forks when retrieving loads at higher stacking heights.
Side Loading Battery
A slide in / slide out battery tray can help facilitate easier battery changes. As changing batteries can be time consuming, this option can help save time and increase productivity.
Blue Safety Light
A blue safety light can be installed at both the front and rear of the forklift to increase safety in the workplace. The blue light effectively warns other pedestrians and operators of a forklift’s presence, particularly around blind spots and aisles.
Pedestrian Detection System
To minimise forklift and pedestrian contact with a workplace, the SEEN pedestrian detection system can be easily retrofitted to forklifts for instant protection. This cost-effective safety solution effectively warns both pedestrians and operators when in proximity and thereby reduces the risk of accidental collisions.
