Cat Lift Trucks, Houston, Texas, introduced the new 15,500-pound-capacity diesel pneumatic tire lift truck, which provides an 18% increase in fuel efficiency and Cat lift trucks dieselproductivity over previous generations and meets Tier 4 interim regulation standards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Fuel efficiency and Tier 4 interim compliance are key components of the DP70N. Other benefits and features include:

High-performance engine. The DP70N features the Perkins 854E 3.L turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine that exceeds U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 interim regulations. The DP70N also features a fuel saver mode, which limits the acceleration curve of the forklift, lowering fuel consumption by an additional 14% while maintaining overall efficiency and enhancing lift truck performance.

Maximum uptime. The lift truck is equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that is designed to passively burn off soot in the system as needed during normal operation.

Easier maintenance. Featuring a standard engine protection system, the DP70N notifies operators when there is something wrong with the forklift, such as critical engine oil pressure and coolant and transmission temperatures. The system automatically lowers maximum RPMs and slows travel and hydraulic speeds when the truck is not performing at acceptable levels, effectively reducing the potential for damage or costly repairs.

Superior operator comfort. Operator comfort is a key component to productivity. The DP70N features a 3-section hydraulic control valve with fingertip controls, full-suspension seat and noise and vibration reduction features that help maximize operator comfort. The lift truck also comes standard with a hydrostatic steering system to help minimize operator effort and a raised floor mat for additional traction in the operator compartment.
