New reach truck from Cat

Briggs Equipment UK, which acquired Finning Materials Handling in September, has launched the new NR-N range of Cat Lift Trucks.

This latest fleet of reach trucks, ranging from a 1,400kg to a 2,500kg model, has a new poweRamic mast design which gives drivers increased visibility as well as improving the truck’s load capacity retention, even at full operating height.

The mast’s channel section has the hydraulic cylinder and roller section as part of the same extrusion, giving greater compactness with increased strength.

Trevor Clifton, technical service manager at Briggs said: “We’re able to do with a 1,400kg model what our competitors can only do with a 1,600kg model.”
