The new Combi-CBE 4t forklift
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.”
