Cat Lift Trucks introduces the WR6000-WR8000 series of AC-powered electric end-rider walkie lift trucks. This new series features walk-behind and ride-on versatility, along with an AC controller precisely matched to drive motor power requirements with maximum efficiency.
The series offers two models with capacities of 6,000 and 8,000 pounds. Both are engineered for long-term reliability in demanding distribution, manufacturing, industrial and commercial applications. The AC electric end-rider walkies are suitable for applications in which there are long runs and floor-level order picking. They offer excellent maneuverability.
The long performance truck models use a three-phase AC technology, resulting in increased efficiency and optimizing energy resources for longer battery shift life. Advanced regenerative braking further enhances energy efficiency and smoothes out directional changes, while reducing brake pad wear. The trucks feature rugged torque-resistant frames and custom-fitted fork lengths best suited for the application, from the 36-inch forks commonly used for beverage handling, to the 96-inch "long-john" forks, designed for handling double pallets. All forks come equipped with special XAR (eXtreme Abrasion Resistant) steel in the areas where accelerated material wear is frequently experienced.
The operator's work space is also designed to reduce fatigue and improve performance, including a cushioned operator platform to reduce jolting and an ergonomically designed handle featuring a twist-grip travel control for maximum grip and excellent speed control. The WR6000-WR8000 series also features a new design that separates the hydraulic and electrical systems, keeping hydraulic fluid away from the electronics.
