Unlike the diesel-powered models, the LPG models provide the flexibility for use in both indoor and outdoor environments. Equipped with GK15 to GK25 engines, these high-powered engines with three-way closed loop catalytic converter, ensure the necessary performance and torque to handle demanding applications. Clean and low emission engines also make them ideal for use in food and beverage, cold storage and supermarkets.

The GPE models are equipped with electronically fuel injected K21E engines, which provide even greater torque and lift speeds. This added power ensures heavy duty performance and efficiency for much more demanding applications compared to the standard models.

Stylish and modern in design, the Cat 1-3.5 tonne LPG forklift range includes a host of standard features designed to increase productivity and safety. Furthermore, a comprehensive list of options are available to suit the needs and lifting applications of any business. This includes various sized masts up to 7 metres, specialised attachments, safety features and much more.

Operator Comfort
Ergonomic Cabin

The forklifts clean and unobstructed workspace including the generous floor area, enhances the operator’s mobility and comfort, thus increasing operator efficiency.


Full Suspension Seat

A contoured suspension seat allows operators to adjust the weight, position and lumbar support to suit their optimal driving position. The back cushion provides even greater bolster support for the operator. The seat also features a hip restraint, seat belt and seat switch , which is part of the overall safety system – Presence Detection System (PDS).


Adjustable Steering

The steering column includes a 12-degree tilt range with infinite settings to maximise driving comfort for any operator. The instrumentation display also tilts with the column for better visibility. Furthermore, a memory position on the column allows for quick and easy opening of the engine hood.


Wide Step

A wide anti-slip step allows the operator to easily enter and exit the truck safely.


Quiet & Smooth

Transmission Noise and vibrations are effectively reduced on these forklifts using helical gears and a floating power train in the transmission. This helps isolate the engine and transmission from the forklift frame and operator compartment.

Productivity & Performance
Integrated Digital Monitors

These Cat forklifts comprise of integrated LCD digital displays like speed and load weight, which provide the operator easier monitoring of systems and controls.


Fuel Saver Mode

For maximum fuel efficiency whilst maintaining exceptional productivity a fuel saver mode can be engaged. This mode effectively reduces the initial acceleration of the forklift thus reducing fuel consumption by 14 percent whilst maintaining 95 percent of the forklift’s overall productivity.


Excellent Stability

A low centre of gravity provides smooth handling for the operator.


Excellent Operational Speeds

Competitive travel and lift speeds


Heavy Duty Masts

Quality constructed masts are designed for reliable and dependable performance. Narrow mast channels with well-placed hose and chain routings also provides excellent visibility for the operator.

Lower Cost
Better Design Improvements

Several design improvements like direct mounted cooling fan, direct mounted hydraulic pump, under covered and increased service intervals for standard lower operational costs.


Prolonging Equipment Life

Advanced on-board diagnostic system allows critical forklift functions to be controlled and monitored. This allows the fork truck to be operating at peak performance.

Presence Detection System (PDS)

Cat forklifts include the Presence Detection System (PDS) which is a safety feature that complies with the Australian Standard AS2359.The system prevents movement of the forklift if the operator has not followed a series of steps in sequential order including engaging the handbrake, sitting on the seat, switching on the ignition and then engaging the seat belt. This process must be followed each time the forklift handbrake is engaged, or the ignition is switched off.


Wide Step

A wide anti-slip step allows the operator to easily enter and exit the truck safely.


Rubber Floor Mat

The textured floor mat adds another layer of safety by effectively reducing the risk of operators slipping when entering and exiting the forklift. This is even more important when working outdoors.


Speed Limiter (Optional / Standard on GPE models)

This feature allows businesses to adjust the forklifts set travel speed to meet application or site requirements. This increases safety by reducing the risk of damaging loads as well collisions with pedestrian or property.


Double Action Parking Brake

To release the brake, operators must push the button while moving the handle forward. This double action improves safety as the brake cannot be accidently released while exiting the forklift. Simply pulling back the on the handle quickly and easily engages the brake.


Rear Horn

A rear hand grab with horn is conveniently positioned on the back overheard guard. This allows operators to easily alert pedestrians and other operators when driving in reverse.


Blue Safety Light (Optional)

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 Systems (Optional)

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. Learn more about the SEEN presence detection system.

Servicing & Maintenance
Vehicle Control Module

The forklifts vehicle control module effectively manages operator and truck functions which allows easy troubleshooting and problem pin pointing.


Hydrostatic Steering

Full hydrostatic steering provides exceptional control and manoeuvrability for the operator. This steering is achieved through hydraulic oil flow which minimises the amount of mechanical linkage and lubrication points. Thereby ensuring low maintenance and servicing while creating smooth effortless steering.


Easy Accessibility to Engine

No specialty tools are required to remove the floor plate and side covers. This provides quick access to the engine compartment and transmission for easy maintenance and servicing.

Forklift attachments

United can supply and install a forklift attachment to suit just about any lifting application. Popular attachments like side shift and fork positioner can be installed to improve operator workflow and performance. Let us help you choose an attachment to suit your lift application and requirements.
