Combilift Launches New Model Truck at Ligna
As leading forklift manufacturer Combilift continues its 25 years in business celebrations, saw the launch of another new model truck, this time at Ligna, the international timber and woodworking show, which ran from May 15–18 in Hanover.
The new Combi-CB70E is a further addition to Combilift’s ever growing range of electric models which offers powerful performance, extensive battery life and unrivalled ergonomics. This model boasts the distinction of being the shortest 7t capacity counterbalance truck on the market whilst also benefitting from multidirectional ability, enabling the versatile space saving handling of both long and bulky loads.
Design features incorporated into the high-capacity Combi-CB70E, such as its large super-elastic tyres and compact wheelbase, make it ideally suited for the operational demands of the timber industry. With a 7,000kg/15,500lb lift capacity, this model easily move bulky loads of timber around in confined spaces.
Combilift’s designers have gone to great lengths to ensure that the latest generation of models are kitted out with top quality components that ensure sophisticated ergonomics for a stress-free in-cab environment. Features in the spacious cab include generous glazing for excellent all-round visibility, the tilting steering column, hydraulic steering and the Grammer MSG65 seat.
What sets the Combi-CB70E apart from other forklifts is its gas strut suspension cab, which uses components such as those found in large scale industrial machinery with cab suspension. Combined with the super-elastic tyres this guarantees the smoothest of rides over uneven or less than perfect ground conditions such as those typically experienced in lumber yards.
Combilift’s newly developed Auto Swivel Seat was also premiered at the Ligna show. This optional feature automatically engages and swivels the seat and armrest 15° to the right or left to accord with the direction of travel selected by the operator – reducing driver strain, particularly when travelling in reverse. (Patent Pending Application No. 2305983.5)
The truck also features Combilift’s internationally patented and Red Dot awarded independent electric traction which provides all front and rear drive wheels with 100 percent traction control. Each electric drive incorporates parking and regenerative dynamic braking for power efficiency. Roll-out access for major electrical components also simplifies maintenance tasks.
