CAT LIFT TRUCKS INTRODUCES THE E3000-E6500 SERIES AC POWERED ELECTRIC CUSHION TIRE LIFT TRUCKS
Trucks Engineered for Performance and Increased Productivity in Demanding Environments
HOUSTON (Feb. 16, 2006) – Cat Lift Trucks, the leading provider of quality and reliable lift trucks, has introduced the E3000-E6500 series of AC powered lift trucks. Featuring MicroCommand™ alternating current (AC) control system, an advanced Operator Presence Detection System and industry leading travel, lift and lowering speeds, the new series continues to provide the solutions and support that Cat Lift Trucks customers have come to expect.
The new series offers nine models with capacities ranging from 3,000 to 6,500 lbs, all of which are engineered for long-term reliability in demanding manufacturing, industrial and commercial applications. The development of an innovative MicroCommand™ AC control system promises several benefits, including the elimination of redundant components typically found on off-the-shelf boxed systems and increased productivity through advanced MOSFET and thermal management technology.
Equipped with a highly efficient AC-drive motor, the E3000-E6500 series delivers increased acceleration and some of the top travel, lift and lowering speeds in the industry. Torque and speed are controlled separately, allowing for optimum driving performance, including improved speed control, especially on uneven surfaces. Additionally these trucks are designed with individual thermal protection systems that guard against overheating of the pump motor, drive motor and control panel, therefore minimizing heat-induced complications and downtime.
Along with the increased speed and productivity features, the E3000-E6500 series takes operator comfort beyond the industry standard. To reduce operator fatigue, the lift trucks feature a full suspension adjustable vinyl seat that provides weight and lumbar support. In addition, an ergonomic operator restraint system provides increased support when turning to face rearward.
In line with Cat Lift Trucks legendary commitment to customer service the E3000-E6500 series features interchangeable components and intelligent diagnostic software that facilitates efficient parts replacement, and reduces planned maintenance. Supported by the most comprehensive customer support network in the industry, these four-wheel AC lift trucks come with 500-hour service intervals and field support from the Cat Lift Truck dealer network. With the E3000-E6500 lift trucks, time between service intervals can double, while cutting the predictable downtime and planned maintenance costs in half.
