United Forklift and Access Solutions has recently released their latest pantograph reach truck series: the CAT NR20-23/ND18. This new series sets the industry benchmark for lift speeds, as well as high load capacity retention.
These forklifts promote safety and productivity provide longer run times and a more efficient handling. This series also allows operators to confidently control the reach trucks in a number of operations that include supply chain logistics, warehousing, retail, mining, energy, manufacturing and production, and storage and distribution facilities for food and beverage industries, as well as oil and gas, mining, energy, and many more.
According to Craig Coles, the remarkable performance and superior precision of the NR20-23/ND18 series sets industry-leading efficiency and productivity benchmarks. United’s CAT Product Manager also mentions that this series has a lower overall cost of ownership in comparison to others.
Aside from having the fastest lift speeds (up to 830mm/s), the NR20-23/ND18 series has a maximum capacity retention of 10.2 meters. It also offers the choice of a single or double deep reach mast. Its robust mast design can also reach up to 11.5 meters with the lift. In addition, the forklifts incorporate an advanced regenerative braking which returns kinetic energy to the battery. Not only that, but it also features an advanced AC motor technology. This ultimately promotes lower energy consumption whilst maintaining longer run times. United Forklift also equipped the series with intuitive controls and stability-enhancing features for more efficiency and confidence in handling the forklifts. Then there is an automatic curve speed reduction and automatic parking brake functions. These deliver additional control during operations.
They have installed an operator display panel that shows key information such as a battery discharge indicator, drive wheel direction indicator, LED indicator lights, and programmable performance modes. There are also a number of options that can be added such as a fork-mounted camera, a lift height indicator, and a tilt position assist.
Mr. Coles added that the Pro Trac system balances the weight of loads carried by the NR20-23/ND18. He mentioned that this feature improves safety and stability when operating at high lift heights.
The NR20-23/ND18 reach truck series is available nationally in 1500-2000kg lift capacities with lift heights up to 11.5 meters.
