Combilift Launches New Product At Ligna

As leading forklift manufacturer Combilift continues its 25 years in business celebrations with the launch of another new model truck, this time at Ligna, the international timber and woodworking show, held 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, in the vibrant Combi-green livery first seen on the recently launched Combi-CUBE product, boasts the distinction of being the shortest 7 ton 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 tires and compact wheelbase make it ideally suited for the operational demands of the timber industry. With a 7,000 kg/15,500 lb. lift capacity, this model benefits from an impressively small footprint as well as exceptional maneuverability meaning that it can easily move bulky loads of timber around in confined spaces.

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)

This mix of next-gen performance, extensive battery life and exceptional ergonomics combined with all the advantages of the Combi-CB range, makes this the most powerful compact electric multidirectional forklift to date.
