The new Combi-CBE 4t fork­lift

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH - Com­bilift, the Ir­ish en­quiry #171103

man­u­fac­turer of multi-di­rec­tional fork­lifts, has launched a new all-wheel drive, elec­tric, mul­ti­di­rec­tional coun­ter­bal­ance fork­lift truck, with a lift ca­pac­ity of 4,000 kg.

The launch of the new Combi- CBE4t comes in ad­vance of Com­bilift’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in Enterprise Ire­land and IDA Ire­land trade and in­vest­ment pro­gramme visit to Aus­tralia and New Zealand as part of the State Visit by Ir­ish Pres­i­dent Michael D Hig­gins to Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

The in­no­va­tive Combi- CBE 4t fork­lift was launched by Com­bilift, at the GIS, Lift­ing, In­dus­trial and Port Han­dling and Heavy Trans­port show at the Pi­a­cenza Expo ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre in Italy last month. It is based on the orig­i­nal multi- di­rec­tional coun­ter­bal­ance fork­lift truck which Com­bilift brought to mar­ket in 2006. The Ir­ish man­u­fac­turer says it is build­ing on the suc­cess of the Combi- CB range of fork­lifts, with the launch of the Combi- CBE 4t with a lif t ca­pac­ity of 4,000 kg. Pre­vi­ously the elec­tric model was only avail­able up to 3,000 kg.

The all- wheel drive Combi- CBE 4t, cou­pled with large rub­ber t yres, al­lows the truck to work ef­fort­lessly in­doors and out and to work on all t ypes of ter­rains. Its ver­sa­til­ity en­ables it to off­load from HGVs, bring prod­uct di­rectly to rack­ing or free stack­ing ar­eas, as well as to feed pro­duc­tion lines. Com­bined with load sensing steer­ing and no fumes, this means that this fork­lift is ideal for in­door ware­house op­er­a­tions, prom­ises the man­u­fac­turer.

Side shift comes as stan­dard and an in­te­grated hy­draulic fork po­si­tioner is an op­tion to fa­cil­i­tate the han­dling of var­i­ous sized loads, with­out op­er­a­tors hav­ing to leave the cab to man­u­ally ad­just the forks. Driver con­ve­nience and com­fort is also a con­sid­er­a­tion in the de­sign of the new Combi- CBE 4t. Hy­draulic steer­ing and syn­chro­nised front wheel po­si­tions al­low for ease of con­trol while driv­ing in all di­rec­tions.

The new model is very cost ef­fec­tive ac­cord­ing to Com­bilift Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Martin McVicar. On­go­ing main­te­nance and ser­vice re­quire­ments were taken into con­sid­er­a­tion in the de­sign of the new fork­lift, he said. “The com­po­nents used in the de­sign and man­u­fac­ture of this new fork­lift are tried and tested in our ex­ist­ing prod­uct range. Ease of ac­cess to all com­po­nents al­lows for greater ser­vice­abil­ity and also al­lows all main­te­nance checks to be com­pleted quickly, with­out any in­con­ve­nience for the end user. The launch of this fork­lift is part of Com­bilift’s con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to meet­ing our cus­tomer’s re­quire­ments and is part of the grow­ing range of prod­ucts of­fered by Com­bilift.”
