Four wheel steering for new Cat trucks

Impact Handling has launched a new range of highly manoeuvrable Cat Lift Trucks in the UK.

The EP25-35N 80 volt counterbalance range is fitted with a four wheel steering system, enabling the trucks to work in confined warehouse spaces. The truck can be steered using the front axle – helping reduce tyre wear as well as delivering improved agility and grip.

Terry Kendrew, managing director of Impact Handling, said: “Operators are increasingly looking for materials handling solutions which are versatile, economical and environmentally friendly – we are confident this new range of trucks will more than meet these expectations.”

The truck has adaptive speed control built into its responsive drive system. It reacts to the speed at which the accelerator pedal and hydraulic controls are being moved, instantly selecting the most appropriate mode.
